All ages are welcome! I specialize in teaching beginner/intermediate violin lessons. Each student will get their own customized plan suited to their goals as a player. Students will learn proper violin technique along with playing fun pieces! I believe that every musician should be proficient in many styles of music including pop, rock and contemporary music.

Teaching since:

I am an experienced violinist currently earning my bachelor's degree in violin performance at Youngstown State University. I have been playing the violin for 10 years. I am classically trained but enjoy playing other styles of music as well. I have been a part of many honors ensembles such as PMEA District 1 Orchestra, PMEA Honors Orchestra and Strings North in PA. At Youngstown State University, I participate in the Dana Chamber Orchestra, Dana Symphony Orchestra, and Strings Ensemble.

My students can expect to improve each week in their technique and overall musicality. I want my to students to have fun, love music and improve throughout their lessons with me. I want to pass on my passion for music to my students.

I have my child abuse clearances and my criminal background checks (with fingerprints) in OH and PA.

Kind, patient, and very thorough with her lessons. She pushes her students to become the best they can be and helps them correct and see things to improve their playing.

Brynn did a great job helping me with my violin. We had some connection problems, but that wasn't her fault. She is nice and sweet and encouraging and patient. She also gave helpful tips.
