I have been a private music instructor for over 20 years. I earned a B.A. in music (oboe performance) from Allegheny College in Meadville, PA, and a M.A. and PhD in musicology from the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC.
I enjoy working with children and teenagers. While my approach to teaching piano and oboe is classically based and my approach to violin instruction is Suzuki based, I adapt my method depending on the learning style of the student. My primary goals in teaching is to inspire the student and instill a love and passion for music.
On a practical note, I have four fluffy and very friendly cats living at my home studio. If the kitties create a problem for you, I can travel to your home.
If I do not have a time open that meets your schedule, please message me and we can discuss finding a time that fits both of our schedules.
Teaching since 1990
- Levels Taught:
I enjoy starting students on the violin. Depending on the age of the student and their previous musical experience, I either begin with Suzuki or another method suitable to the student's background.
