I'm passionate about music and have 17 years experience teaching the violin. I accept students from beginner to advanced levels and will help you achieve your goals whether you are wanting to learn the violin as a hobby, for school or pursue music as a career!
I can help you with everything from traditional classical repertoire to modern world, folk, jazz, and improvisation. I like to focus on music theory and reading skills, in addition to developing musicality from the first lesson. I also play electric violin and can help you to set up virtual or analogue rigs to get the best sound.
I teach everything from beginner to advanced, basics to shifting, vibrato, theory, and technique. I teach classical, religious, fiddle, and pop. I also teach group ensembles, trios, quartets, etc. I help students with their school orchestral music and audition pieces also.
Typically, I use the Suzuki and Strictly Strings books for beginner students, and I will then advance to etude studies such as Wolfarht and Sevick in addition to the Suzuki sequels for my intermediate students. Lastly, I will add Introducing the Positions, Mazas, Josephine Trott Double Stops, and solo concertos to my advanced students.
