I've been teaching violin privately and in groups for 7 years. My most recent teaching experience was volunteering in Haiti last summer, where I taught at three different summer camps. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to hold the instrument and as time goes on you'll be able to play simple to more advanced melodies. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Katie

Katie was a wonderful violin teacher for my son (four years old at the time). Katie knew how to make learning music and the violin fun through games and various activities. She was attentive and patient, kind and encouraging. She worked with us to allow him to participate in the annual recital--she played a simple, beautiful song while he plucked an open string. She is reliable, accessible, and caring. Couldn't ask for a better, more qualified, and dynamic teacher than Katie to facilitate a positive musical experience a young child.

I greatly enjoyed my violin lessons with Katie. She improved my violin technique, encouraged me to tackle challenging solo pieces, and helped me prepare for youth orchestra auditions. She also guided me in producing video recordings for my college applications. On top of that, she is extremely patient and cheerful. Katie is the best!

Katie is a fantastic teacher! She taught me for six months and introduced me to the violin (I had never played before meeting her). She was patient, diligent, and communicated effectively. I would highly recommend!

I am a patient teacher, and passionate about teaching music. There are many aspects on learning how to play the violin. I focus on the sound a lot, so it will be a very short or almost to none screeching time when they play. To produce good sound, posture is number one thing. I like to build a student from a solid ground, so correct posture, right hand, left hand position, violin holding, and the whole body posture are all little pieces can make big differences in violin playing. By doing so, can make playing much easier, sounding beautiful, and make hard passages easier! And the correct posture will also help prevent the possibility from getting playing related injuries. I believe having inspiration is important too, listening to different music and great players can develop the ears, and also is a hugh inspiration to practice.

Take engaged and creative violin lessons that inspire imagination and playfulness while also enforcing the discipline and focus needed to master refined skills.

About Peace
As a Suzuki violin student at the age of 5, I have been keenly interested in the creative arts and the curious ability of the mind to transport our experiences to vast other places.

I began teaching violin as a middle schooler and I have spent two decades mastering my skills and growing my love of teaching students of all ranges of age, and ability.

In 2009, I studied the Alexander Technique to address issues as a performer and use these skills and techniques to inform my teaching today.

Realizing the mental abilities it takes to play violin, I naturally found interest in meditation.

As a passionate mediator for 12 years, I began teaching all levels how to develop their mind for self-care, compassion, empathy, peace-of-mind and response awareness. I believe these traits are key for all people to live together in a chaotic and
challenging environment.

I started meditation to develop my own self awareness, but these tools can help anyone to find their center, build confidence and gain energy for facing life's hyper-stimulation. My goal is to guide everyone into all levels of meditation, for students who are curious and have never meditated, to advanced meditators looking to take their understanding to the next level.

I teach Vipassana or Insight meditation. I am an affiliate of several meditation centers around the city.

I love teaching all people the ways of violin and meditation. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
