I strive to create an environment in which students are inspired to discover, create, learn, express themselves and have fun. I focus on strengthening students' foundational techniques, through scales, etudes and other materials and then applying those skills in pieces and songs that are designed to build a good basis of musical knowledge, helping students to become confident in their musical abilities.

About Brittany N.

Brittany is very well prepared for our lessons. She's very encouraging and although I've only had two lessons, I've learned a lot and she gives me plenty of exercises to do on my own to improve as well.

Brittany is a great teacher to start your journey towards learning how to play the Violin. She makes you feel relaxed and is patient enough to let you go your pace.

Brittany is absolutely one of the most delightful instructors I've been lucky enough to encounter. I came to her as an adult knowing nothing about either music or violin. In the months I've been taking lessons with her, I feel very proud of what I've learned so far.

Her home studio is beautiful and warm. She always greets me with a smile and knows exactly what our lesson plan and goal for the day will be. Brittany is extremely patient whenever I struggle to grasp a concept, and enthusiastically answers any question I can think to ask. That said, she isn't afraid to push you to try, either, which I very much appreciate!

Brittany is a lot of fun to work with, and I would wholeheartedly recommend her as an instructor.

Brittany has gotten Mari more engaged in her violin playing, which is exactly what we were looking for in an instructor. She's patient and is getting Mari to think and anticipate her chord progressions. We have been so pleasantly surprised with Brittany. It's an awesome match!

Brittany is a great instructor. She shows enthusiasm and lots of patience. I have been going to her for half a year now. Every week we learn something new and we also revisit past lessons.

My 8 year-old daughter had her first 2 lessons and I was so impressed and pleased with Brittany's knowledge and professionalism with the lesson. She was great with my daughter! I strongly believe finding the right Instructor makes all the difference. I would highly recommend her.

Brittany is amazing! She brings so much talent to her lessons, is extremely flexible and willing to commute to my location, while she's also punctual. She is extremely patient and knowledgeable in all aspects of music. She has tremendously helped to build my confidence and is very supportive. I would highly recommend Brittany to anyone!
