I look forward to the lessons every week. Russ takes the time an ensures that the information provided is understood as well as performed correctly. Homework is always a blast. How many times can anybody say that? I would recommend Russ to any level of performer, if just to sharpen exisiting skills or start from the very beginning, Russ has the ability to get you to the level "you" want to be at with your drum playing. Russ will also introduce books that can be practiced out of when that homework is assigned. Great instructor and as become a good friend. If you want to learn the drums....call Russ!

I've been working with Russell for several months now. I took instruction 35 years ago but never progressed. As I was young and moving on to other things. Fast forward to now, I'm 51 years old and working with him on a weekly basis has taken farther faster than I could have imagined. He makes lessons fun and I really look forward to them. I have also seen him play live and sing. He's an amazing talent!

Heather C.

Charlotte, NC

About Heather

Teaching violin has been a rewarding experience for myself and my students! Using the Suzuki method, students are able to play the violin at young ages which is great for brain development, learning to control sounds, and also learning to be disciplined in as as they learn to practice in small amounts! The Suzuki method is a great starting point, but other methods are also fun: Mark O'Conner, All for Strings, Essentials for Strings, Sassmanshaus, etc.

Introduction to Reading Violin Tabs
Tablature is a form of musical notation that was invented to make reading music easier for fretted and string instruments like guitar, bass, and violin. The premise is operationally-based, meaning that rather than showing rhythm, duration, and pitch, violin tabs will show the player where and when to place their fingers on the instrument. For an improvising musician, violin tabs allow you to improvise while staying within the chord structure of a song. Tablature-style notation is most commonly
