    About the teacher

    I've been teaching violin for over 20 years and my students have gone on to play in youth orchestra, attend PMEA and ASTA events or go to college as a music major. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to improve your playing skills and as time goes on you'll be able to play at a more advanced level. I specialize in [Traditional Classical violin, typically use Essential Elements 2000, Samuel Applebaum methods, Suzuki methods and traditional scales and etude books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: Metronome, Tuner, rosin. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

    I think she can make learning fun.

    Susanna was wonderful. She took her time to explain how the lesson would transpire, and engaged Nevaeh to insure she understood everything. She has a lovely way; patient and engaging. Nevaeh felt comfortable right away. She seems perfect for Nevaeh.
