I have been an orchestra director for a school district for 7 years and teach beginning through advanced violin; specialize in theory, various genres including classical, jazz.

About Dee

*** Travel Equipment ***
Books. Students must have their own instrument (keyboards are acceptable for taking piano lessons). I always council students on brand, quality of instrument they are purchasing before they buy it.

*** Specialties *** I have been a public school music educator for over 20 years, and have taught band, orchestra, and choir which enables me to teach many instruments and voice. I also have been a language and reading tutor for over 6 years and have worked with students with special needs for over 10 years.
I studied classical guitar with master guitarist, Christo
pher Parkening, at Montana State University where I graduated with a B.M.E. I also did graduate work at MSU in composition. I teach Suzuki piano and violin. I am an accomplished composer/songwriter with many published and recorded songs and instrumental works through ASCAP. I endeavor to make learning fun, and enjoy teaching students of all ages!

While I have not had the pleasure of taking lessons with Genie, I wanted to write a review, as she was the violinist for our wedding. Genie was prompt in returning all communication with me, and extremely professional in all correspondence. We decided to only have Genie as our music during the ceremony, as her talent was so beautiful, we didn't want to risk adding more music on top of her solo.

Genie allowed us to pick our own music, but provided her own insight. She was very patient with our selection, and very knowledgeable with her recommendations.

Genie arrived early, and was dressed professionally and perfect for the occasion. She quietly set up, and was well-prepared with additional music to play as guests were seated. We had so many compliments regarding her playing, and I wish I had an ounce of her talent.

I would recommend her for any lessons, as what I encountered during our time together is that she is friendly, patient, and professional. Thank you Genie, for making our wedding so special.

Victor Q.

Phoenix, AZ

About Victor

I believe that any student will practice more if he or she likes the music they are playing. Periodically I will ask a student to give me a name of a piece of music that they would like to learn how to play. I notate it for them, often simplifying the rhythm and chords in Finale NotePad and give it to them free of charge. I teach students how to play music on their given instrument. Not just how to play the instrument but working on technique, finger dexterity, expert note reading ability and total musicianship. How to play a piece of music that will move the audience emotionally. I stress voc
abulary and music history and theory as part of being a well-trained musician.

Brian M.

Tempe, AZ

Students in this area will receive extensive instruction on musicality, the fundamentals of reading/interpreting musical notation/symbols, comfortable and physically healthy approaches to holding the instrument and practicing effective posture, as well as performance techniques. Most beginners will start from the Suzuki series. Lessons are custom tailored and planned according to the individual student and his/her individual needs. What do you want to learn, and what do you hope to gain from our time together? These questions are among my top priorities when starting with a new client. All levels (including advanced) are included in this category (see lessons for Audition Preparation as well).

About Brian

After graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance (Violin) from the artistically vibrant and widely recognized music program at Central Washington University, I traveled to the nationally recognized Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University where I am currently in my 2nd year of my Master's Degree in Music. I have been teaching both in-home and in a professional capacity since 2005. Having personally prepared many auditions, I have both experiential and technical advice to offer intermediate to advanced players. Music theory and its ap
plications is another one of my passions and I am always excited to share this knowledge in all instrumental lessons, which include both violin and viola. Lessons through this website will be held at the School of Music at ASU in the practice room facilities which are secured with card-key access, and are very private and comfortable. All styles of playing are welcome! Beginners are usually started on the Suzuki program.
I also have experience teaching at the incredibly successful and internationally acclaimed LindaMood-Bell Learning Processes where I worked with children K-12+ on phonemic awareness and reading comprehension, knowledge which would be a perfect match for anyone looking to enhance their child's reading skills (many of the clients I have worked with were diagnosed with learning abilities before enrolling, and all showed significant progress after completing the program).

My six year old son with no musical experience desperately wanted a violin for Christmas. Santa brought him one and we needed someone to teach him how to use it. We started taking lessons in January with Brian and he was extremely patient with a curious child who had many questions, not all about music and the violin. My son has progressed well and looks forward to his weekly lessons with Mr. Brian.

Brian is an exception teacher for the beginning student! He is systematic and patient, which is exactly what new students need. Brian focused on helping my daughter learn the basics of violin, both in structure and in form.

I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in learning this beautiful instrument.
