Students can start from the very beginning or come in to improve technique, sound, skills, ear training, intonation, and reading music. Students work on scales, exercises for tone and coordination, vibrato, solos, audition music, and orchestral music. I can recommend many youth orchestras in the area. Some of my students work on auditions and music for All Southern Youth Orchestra and All State Youth Orchestras. I go at the student's pace and also start out many beginners. Students learn to sight read and practice rhythm exercises to prepare for orchestra auditions and playing with other musicians.
Experienced teacher of 30 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages. I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of classical skill. I specialize in classical music and provide multiple playing opportunities for my students throughout the year.
Viola lessons will consist of learning great skill and musicality. Students are expected to always play scales and etudes to help form the foundation of great playing. I also encourage students to play musically, meaning I want them to bring out the emotion of the piece. Beginners will use method books such as Essential Elements and the Suzuki books to learn basic repertoire. I use a traditional approach, so I won't use the Suzuki style of teaching. After I feel the student is improving with these beginning method books I will start to incorporate traditional scale and etude books, along with pieces that pertain to the level they are at.

I want to provide students with the opportunity to do and achieve anything they desire with music and become well-rounded musicians. My goal is to enable students to make music independently and become self-sufficient learners. As a result, students can enjoy music for their own playing and/or choose to become professional musicians.
