Hi! I have been teaching private violin lessons for the past 5 years to beginners and adults! I am currently a student at DePaul University working towards my Performer's Certificate. I also received my Master's Degree in Violin Performance from DePaul Univeristy in 2014. I graduated magna cum laude from Boston University with a Bachelor's Degree in Violin Performance. I specialize in classical training, although I also love to teach fiddle. I am a trained Suzuki teacher as well as a chamber musician and coach. If you are looking for a young, exciting teacher, I might be the perfect fit!
*** Lesson Details ***
I teach students of all ages and experience levels. Depending on the student, I use a Suzuki based method of teaching. This means that I use the Suzuki books and like to have the parent be more involved in the learning process, but I also feel it is very important to supplement the books by adding scales, etudes, and other solo repertoire. When possible, I like to have my students interact in chamber music, which is so often missing from most lessons.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room, street parking,
*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to have a music stand. I bring music and a tuner and metronome.
*** Specialties ***
I typically teach classical style violin and viola, however I do have experience teaching fiddle.
