No more waiting to get to the good stuff! Our proven violin and piano methods let you use the entire fingerboard and keyboard from your very first day.

Other methods restrict student access at first. Students become accustomed to a narrow range. They may become anxious when invited to advance to a new level. Our gentle approach has produced concert violinists, professional fiddlers, and accomplished pianists, as well as avid amateurs.

You don't have to be an advanced player to make music on piano or violin. Some folks need more encouragement, but everyone has something to say. We'll share proven tools in the private lesson to have you playing violin and piano the way you always dreamed.

Experienced teachers, beginners to advanced. Ruth has over 30 years teaching experience in colleges and music schools. Come see the possibilities!

I really enjoy taking saxophone lessons with Ana. She is extremely knowledgeable in topics related to saxophone, jazz, and improvisation. Her lessons are very organized, intellectually stimulating, and she provides just the right amount of structure while allowing me the space to develop my own creative ideas. I highly recommend taking a lesson with her. You’ll thank me later!
Christine
I have played clarinet for 5 years now and am working on music for solo pieces and band class. Ana gives me lots of material to work on and I am feeling more confident about my playing!
Amanda D.
I'm a classically-trained flutist and have been taking Jazz improv and theory lessons with Ana for four months. I have learned so much from her - she has opened my eyes to jazz and made it fun and approachable. The lessons have given me a deeper appreciation when listening to jazz, improved my listening skills, and made me a better player. I never thought I would be able to do improv, and after a few weeks of lessons it came very easily to me. I highly recommend Ana to anyone who wants to learn jazz improv, regardless of what instrument they play!

Music can be a very intimate practice. To share, create and collaborate can be challenging if not fostered in the beginning of musical education. Lending students a safe and educational place to create can lead to great confidence that spans all areas of life and study. Because of this, I encourage involvement in the community where possible. For instance, I most recently had my violin students collaborate with the local youth guitar orchestra to perform a small concert series. I challenged my students to ideate and take a hands on approach to arranging the music. The relationships they built were forever lasting, the skills the gained were expansive and each witnessed their own improvement with excitement. Engagement fosters a higher-level of learning and development.

Fostering creativity leads to development but it can only grow from the fundamentals. The more tools in the box, the more one can create. Some discipline is needed to gain the understanding necessary to reach any ...

Have you ever wanted to play violin, but never knew where to start? Do you have trouble learning correct technique, practice strategies, or struggle finding good repertoire to learn? Well, you've come to the right place!

I am a young and passionate teacher, committed to helping you improve on your instrument and achieve your goals! Many students comment on my patience, communication skills, and flexibility as a teacher.

In our first lesson, I will likely ask you to demonstrate your level to me, either by telling me or showing me what you know. I will use this to better understand your strengths and weaknesses and go from there. You can expect to come away from our first lesson with some learning materials, a plan for going forward, and an encouraging start to our journey as musicians together!

Some examples of things students can learn from me include: expanding repertoire, ear training, music reading, improvising, jamming, music theory, and technique.

She is very careful and detailed in her approach which is very important when working with a child who is beginning to learn. She keeps the child engaged through out the class, with games, little dance steps, striking conversation with the child etc. She has interesting ideas and techniques to teach this difficult instrument to a five year old. So far we are very happy with Gabrielle."

"Erin is a great violin teacher for my son!

At first, I was skeptical if my son could actually learn violin on skype. Erin proved that it can work very well. She helped my son to improve the techniques and was strict about his posture (much needed!). Erin was very encouraging and patient with my son. She always wrote the post-lesson notes, which was super helpful to keep my son focused on the areas for practice.

When my son decided that he wasn't interested in violin any more, Erin encouraged him, and offered good advice for me too. I really appreciate Erin's professionalism and positive attitude!"
