Experienced teacher of 7 years, specializing in all levels of violin! I also teach beginner/intermediate viola and cello students. All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. Let's get started!

About Emily K.

I am a strings teacher, teaching privately for 10 years and in public schools for 7. I graduated from Elizabethtown College with a Bachelors of Music in Music Education, with a concentration in violin.

Strings students can expect to improve week to week in their technique. I teach students strong foundational techniques in order to develop their abilities. I use a mixture of both technical exercises and repertoire to help any student to play with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach violin, viola, and cello students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied violin for 18 years, and have played viola and cello in numerous performances. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

Lesson was awesome. Emily was kind and patient, and my Granddaughter and I really enjoyed our group lesson. This will clearly be a treasured memory for both of us!!

Emily was an excellent teacher for my son. She helped him prepare for college auditions and helped him earn Superior ratings at Solo festivals.
