Taking violin lessons with me will be informative, effective, and most of all, fun!
I am focused 100% on the success and well-being of each student, ensuring their musical progress. I also keep the line of communication open and honest between the student and teacher, in order to discuss issues or concerns as they arise.
I pledge to always help you cultivate your love of music, and to give you the tools you need to succeed as a musician!

About Ali M.

My name is Ali Mills, and I have been a instructor for about 7 years. I have taught children ages 5-13, but would love to help anyone gain the skills they need on their instrument!
I am currently a Junior at Biola University, studying towards a Bachelor's of Music in Violin Performance. I have played the violin since I was 3, and love the instrument so much.
As for my experience with teaching, I recently finished a String Pedagogy course in school that teaches the techniques and strategies required to start a student on any string instrument, in addition to guiding them through lessons and practice sessions all the way up to intermediate/advanced levels as well. This year, I taught a violin group class of 14 children at a local public elementary school near my college, teaching them simple songs and foundational techniques needed to be a confident violinist. I will continue working with them in the fall when I return to school, and I am looking forward to continuing their studies!
I have taught private lessons out of my home before college, and I also have a couple students that I regularly teach at my university as well.
I am a high-energy teacher, always keeping things fun and interesting! I hope that we get to work together soon.
