Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
Fiddling is a great way for young and old violin students to catch some enthusiastic violin playing. What a great way to get your fingers and bows flying while getting more technique and travel all over the world with your music.

I also love giving even my most inexperienced students options for improvising on a violin. Beginning improvisers can make no mistakes. It is all about getting comfortable and making discoveries.
If students want to get more music theory and technical information about Jazz improvisation I can provide aspiring musicians a head start before they join their first jam session.

Teaching since:

I've been teaching preschoolers to College students and adults since 1992. Challenging students are my forte. As much as I enjoy working with my advanced students I never lose inspiration for my newest beginners of every age. As a Suzuki Violin teacher who studied 3 years in Japan with Dr. Suzuki, I am specially trained to start beginners with great care and enthusiasm.
