When I gave end of the year evaluations in my classroom one word would always pop up from students, patience.
Having worked in the orchestra classroom for 6 years, assisting with honor orchestras for two years, and run private studios with students from age 6-65 I have learned to meet students where they are at their pace.
I taught primarily beginner and intermediate students as a middle school orchestra teacher.
I have a Master’s Degree in Music Education from Southeastern Oklahoma State University. Violin is my primary instrument, and I have played for two decades.

About Angela R.

Meeting students where they are is one of my qualities that many of my past students have loved.
Having taught for 6 years and assisting with youth orchestras, I have the most experience with middle school aged students.
Whether the student is homeschooled wanting to learn an instrument or a student enrolled in a school orchestra program and wants to get ahead, I’m there to help.
Adult students are more than welcome too! Whether you’re solo wanting to learn something new or you want to learn along side your child or grandchild, I am there to help.
As far as personal experience, I have played violin for almost 20 years, playing in professional orchestra, in the pit in musicals, and I got to play with Michael Bublé once. I have a Master’s in Music Education.
