IMPROVISERS! (Classical See below)
Have you always wanted to play violin by ear?!  To play all of your favorite songs or play in a band?!
Can you hum or whistle? Can you sing what you hear, even a few notes of it? 

If so, I can help you discover the improviser that already exists inside of you! It's gonna be fun🙂
And yes you will still have to run scales, there is no getting around it... I tried.
Under 16, parents must attend the full lesson and will assist in daily music practice.

CLASSICAL
You want a teacher who will set you up with the foundational technique you need while bringing in songs you've always wanted to learn.

We will go through the Suzuki Method books with supplemental material (though I am not a Suzuki teacher) to instill the art of balanced violin playing into your body and motor functions while our minds play with the beauty of rhythm, timing, tone, expression, and musicality. When you are ready, I am happy to arrange songs that fit your interest in addition to ...

I'm really enjoying learning the fiddle. Benji is a very good instructor. He has a great deal of experience and knowledge, has great intuition about how to present and teach, encourage and challenge me based on where I am moment to moment. He is very patient and encouraging, with a calm energy, which are excellent qualities in a teacher. I highly recommend him.
