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!

After playing the violin for over 20 years, I was inspired to share the gift of music with others by my teacher, Susanna. I'm is a member of the American String Teacher’s Association, and have attended the 2017 ASTA National Conference. I currently performs with the Edgewood Symphony Orchestra. I have played in recitals, the Chartiers Valley High School Orchestra, and was accepted to the 2006 PMEA District Orchestra. I can’t remember a time before I learned how to play the violin; it has brought me great joy!

Lisa is a fabulous instructor! My daughter is taking lessons with Lisa weekly and we have noticed a significant improvement in her skills. Lisa is very patient, attentive and provides feedback regularly so I too can assist my child prior to her next lesson. Highly recommended!
