I'm passionate about music and have a Masters Degree in Violin Performance with 23 years experience teaching the violin. I will help you achieve your goals whether you are wanting to learn the violin as a hobby, for school or pursue music as a professional career!
About Connie E.

AGES TAUGHT: Ages 4 - 80 in person and online (Male students ages 20+ online lessons only). I love teaching and enjoy passing on that joy, knowledge, and experience to my students! I have a Masters Degree in Violin Performance and 23 years teaching experience. Lessons are tailored according to the student's goals, abilities, and preference in musical styles. Whether you're wanting to learn the violin to play professionally or just as a personal hobby, I believe you should enjoy the learning process! Active as a teacher, performer, chamber and studio recording musician, I am passionate about music and enjoy teaching aspiring student. After 17 years as a freelance violinist in the greater Los Angeles area, I now reside and teach in Lynden, WA and enjoy all that the Pacific NorthWest has to offer. A laureate of competitions in the United States and Canada, I began violin studies at age four and made my solo orchestral debut at age twelve with the Vancouver Youth Symphony. I hold a Masters of Music Degree in Violin Performance from California State University, Long Beach and have been playing the violin since the age of four. I've enjoyed teaching private lessons for 23 years and have experience in teaching group and private lessons to students of all ages, coaching string orchestras and string ensembles. My students have won competitions and concertmaster positions in their orchestras, and have been accepted into University Violin Performance programs around the country. I incorporate music theory, ear training and general music history as part of the lesson. University level conducting, music analysis, music history, voice, and advanced piano are also part of my training. While I specialize in classical music, I help my students discover what genre of music they're passionate about learning, including classical, jazz, pop, and fiddle. Lessons include scales, technique, ear training, sight reading, music theory, solos, duets, music performance and the option to prepare for auditions and orchestras. I'm also experienced with Royal Conservatory and Suzuki methods, and tailor the curriculum I use depending on the need of each individual student. Please contact me for up to date lesson availabilities!

My daughter is taking in person lessons at Ms. Connie's studio in Lynden. We are very happy to have her as our teacher! She has all the great qualities we were looking for in a teacher and my daughter is making good progress while loving her lessons.
