Teaching since:

My main goal as a teacher is for you to have fun while you are working towards your goals! During each lesson I focus on technique and intonation to build a strong musical foundation. I also include resources such as games, songs, and various activities to make lessons enjoyable and educational for all students. The more fun you have while learning your instrument, the more information you will be able to remember later on!

Aside from the fun stuff, I also work on important skills that benefits students inside and outside of lessons. Playing in front of people can be scary, so I work with each student to help them develop their own strategy so they can overcome any existing stage fright. I also work with students on building their showmanship skills to make them feel more confident in performance settings with their instrument.

***Teacher Responsibility***
My goal is to provide consistent and positive learning opportunities for each student by:
1. Developing a well-balanced lesson plan that benefits the student.
2. Provide performance opportunities. (This may vary for online lessons depending on location.)
3. Encouraging regular practice.
4. Communicating progress with the parent and student.

***Student/Parent Responsibility***
While I will do everything I can to keep your child motivated, I will need consistent help and support from you. This might be the first serious commitment your child has made, and as you know your child will only be as committed as you are. I expect that parents will be supportive in the following ways:

1. Provide an instrument and practice area that is free from distractions.
2. Encourage a consistent practice time and acknowledge their efforts.
3. Be on time for your lesson.
4. Communicate any questions or concerns with me.

***Lesson Details***
For online lessons, I suggest using a quiet space free from distractions. Have a notebook and a pencil handy to write down instructions during your lesson so you can reference it during your weekly practice. Please be on time when logging on for your lesson.

***Lesson Preparation***
Please come prepared. Your lesson is time for instruction, not practice. To make the most out of your lesson time, I suggest setting a regular practice time and stick to it. Always log on to your lesson with your assigned music, instrument tuned, a pencil and trimmed fingernails.

***Weekly Practice***
One of the most common questions I am asked as a teacher is how much a student should practice during the week. Beginning students are expected to practice a minimum of 120 minutes (or two hours) a week. This can be divided into 30 minutes a day for four days a week. I have found that these numbers have provided excellent results for students during the first six months of playing.

***Other Details***
Students are responsible for providing their own instrument and any other required books or accessories. All ages are welcome.

Brooke is an incredible teacher! My kids have been getting lessons from her from 2 years, and we absolutely love her! The way she works with her students makes it very apparent that she plans through every lesson carefully, and sets goals for each student individual achievements.

I'm an avid fan of hers and attend the concerts she puts on for her students in winter and spring. She only teaches violin, but she is very knowledgeable of music in general and helped me practice notes and counting on piano. She also taught me how to correctly hold the bow for a cello, when before I thought a cello was just a larger violin.

She raves about her students' progress to me a lot. I find that enthusiasm is contagious and I know her love for teaching positively influences her students--just this year I could hear the improvement many of them made in the months between their winter and spring concerts.

Brooke is an incredible violin player and it's easy to tell how much she loves what she's doing. She is patient, kind, and understanding. Her lessons with my kid have been so helpful, he has learned so much from her, and I am so greatful.

Brooke has been teaching for our store for 3 years both in individual and group lessons. She is not only a very talented violinist but she works extremely well with her students of all ages. I will always recommend her for any violin students.
