About Sharon

Been playing the violin for over 40 yrs. Started in elementary school and held the coveted "Concert Master" designation all through high school. Been playing fiddle since 1985. Twenty years experience as a dance fiddler, and the last several years studying swing and traditional Irish. I play in three bands, all different genres.
I consider myself so lucky to be blessed to be playing an instrument. It is one of the best kept secrets to life. This is a point I like to stress to my students. It enhances your mind, you can make wonderful friendships with like minded people, and constantly learn n
ew tunes and genres. It just keeps you young at heart. I love spreading the Gospel of music.I consider myself so lucky to be blessed to be playing an instrument.

It enhances your mind, you can make wonderful friendships with like minded people, and constantly learn new tunes and genres. It just keeps you young at heart. I love spreading the Gospel of music. I am very patient and will teach my students everything I've learned over the past 40 years.

*** Lesson Details ***
I give 30 minute and 60 minute lessons. I recommend 30 minute lessons for beginners. I teach classical techniques for holding the instrument. Scales and intonation work are important, and can be integrated into simple songs so as not to be boring. Teach sight reading and auditory learning. Auditory is more important as Music is an auditory art. I am easy going and teach what the student wants to learn as everyone is on different levels and has different ways of learning. I also teach violin chords, and applied theory as to improvisation for playing. All skill levels welcome.

I use handouts from several different music books and will tailor them to your skill level. I do expect my students to find some time to practice what I give them. I really want my students to get all the bang they can for their buck

In such a short amount of time, I have learned a tremendous amount from my instructor. She is very knowledgeable, professional and helpful. I am sorry that I am not able to continue at this time due to finances. However, I would definitely sign up with her again if granted the opportunity. There's so much more to learn and already I am able to apply some of the techniques she has taught me.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that learning music is built upon a strong relationship between teacher and student. This relationship involves good communication, honesty, open mindedness, and most importantly the desire to LEARN and have FUN. I approach teaching music by knowing and understanding the student's musical goals, and teaching fundamentals, theory, and technique through the styles of music that the student wants to learn. For beginners, I tend to teach basic technique through simple songs to get the student playing music as quickly as possible.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I own a piano, flute. Flute students will provide their own instrument. Piano students will use piano in lessons but have their own instrument (piano or keyboard) at home to practice on.

*** Travel Equipment ***
My instrument. Piano students will need a piano or keyboard at home.

*** Specialties ***
I teach beginning, intermediate, and advance literature on the flute. For beginners, I typically support the student's band program (if enrolled) by utilizing their class method book (John Thompson's method for beginning piano) and supplying additional materials, such as solos, duets, etc. For experienced students, I use a combination of etudes (Melodious and Progressive Studies - Cavally, 26 Selected Studies - Altes, etc.), Duets, and solos (leveled according to the FBA). I specialize in teaching all genres and styles of music.

Excellent Instructor

I'm a college music professor, and so I have experience in the area. Melissa is a superb instructor. She is patient and engaging, and my daughter (age 9) loves her lessons. She applies just the right amount of "pressure" so that things are fun, but also on task and moving forward. Five star instruction. Highly recommend.
