Since 2008 I have maintained an active music studio teaching both violin and viola! My lessons are designed around you and your goals for music. I use a combination of Suzuki method and traditional (meaning you'll learn how to read music right away if you can't already) My lessons are catered to your needs, but warm ups, scales, etudes and repertoire are the building blocks of my lessons. Technique is a huge part of the way I teach--so you'll definitely get a solid understanding of how to play beautifully and accurately! I'm a relaxed and gentle teacher, and I'm never going to have anything but a smile on my face, so there's no need to feel stressed or nervous.

Students of all skill levels are welcome. I tailor the lesson type to the student rather than use a cookie-cutter approach.
I am a second generation music teacher for piano and violin. I have been teaching for over 15 years as well as playing both instruments for about 30 years. I have an Associates in Music. Making lessons both fun and educational is what make my students successful in their instruments. My lessons are custom made to how the student learns, not cookie-cut. We also do bi-annual recitals in October and April to showcase the students' accomplishments. *** Lesson Details *** My lessons are both fun and educational at the same time. I compromise with my students by having us each pick a piece to play on top of the usual learning pieces. My students play anything from Katy Perry to 80s music and rock ballads and in between. I use John Thompson and Fingerpower as well as a notespeller for
Learn classical violin, learn to read music notation, or get extra private instruction on material that you are learning in your school lessons and orchestra. Learn proper posture and hand positions, including holding the bow correctly, learn scales and sight reading.
I have been teaching private music lessons since 2003 and specialize in Vocals and both beginner Guitar and Violin. My education in music began long ago in 1994 when I began playing violin and performed in different Orchestras and Chamber Orchestras throughout my years in school. I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston to study violin performance, have an associates degree in Music Performance, and have studied with many well know instructors over the years. My teaching style is based on a fun, creative, and informative knowledge to get you feeling confident right away with what we are working on together! I love teaching Rock, Pop, and Blues styles for Vocals and Guitar and have a long history of classical training for Violin. You will get to learn what you want to learn and I will
For beginning students I start with Suzuki books until about book 5 and then begin to branch out into other repertoire. I teach students to read music as well as basic theory. I also incorporate playing by ear and improvisation. These are important skills which help students develop into flexible and well rounded musicians.
I am happy to teach any piece in any style that the student wants to learn. Students do much better work and can learn much more when they are excited about the music they are playing.
In addition I can also help students with their orchestra music.
I am extremely passionate about music and excited to pass my passion on to students. I have been studying violin since I was 4 years old and it has always been a central part of my life. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University this past May with a BFA in Violin Performance and Physics. I enjoy music of all styles and in addition to classical music I play rock and jazz. I collaborate frequently with Trenton based rock artist Roy Orbitron. For beginning students I start with Suzuki books until about book 5 and then begin to branch out into other repertoire.

I have taught beginning through advanced levels, preschoolers though mature adults.
I began studying the violin at the age of 4 with the assistant concertmaster of the Philadelphia Orchestra. I studied violin though my junior year of college at Temple University, when I switched to the viola. I have extensive knowledge and proficiency on both instruments and have been teaching for 33 years. I teach all levels from beginning to advanced, preschool through mature adult . I have been told that I have a gift for teaching young children. I enjoy teaching! I get a great deal of satisfaction from watching a student master a concept, whether that student is 5, or 55; the thrill is the same! I tailor my lessons to each student's ability, personality, and time commitment. I set realistic and attainable goals and am very easy to work with. I use an interactive approach; I
