- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
I graduated with a bachelors in music education at Western Illinois University in 2012. At the university I received talent grants to play in the symphony orchestra as a violinist, I also sang in the school of music top choir. After graduating I immediately was offered a position at a music studio in Geneva and have been successfully working for them for the last 5 years. For the last 3 years I have worked at a middle school in Elmhurst as a choir director and also was the vocal director for 3 musicals and head director for 2 plays. I have background with special education students from ages 5-13.
Although I am primarily a violinist and vocalist I also teach up to intermediate in piano, viola, cello, and acoustic guitar at the music studio. I believe that it is important for the student to be able to learn music theory at their skill level, problem solving, and also enjoying what they play. Beginning lessons will give students a strong foundation of their instrument but adding on solo music.
Work as a Violin, Voice, Viola, Cello, Guitar and Piano Teacher
Most of my scheduled students are for violin, viola, and piano. I have full schedules at this studio on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Felicia is a great teacher! We work well together, she asks how I want to learn and she helps me to understand what I’m learning! As an adult learner, it helps that she can modify my lesson to suit my specific needs. I think this will be a great partnership!!+ Read More
Felicia has truly helped me improve on the viola. From spotting my wrong bow hold to making sure that I am absolutely positive on where the fingerings are for the key, she has most definetly improved my playing over all and is helping me advance past most of my peers in my school orchestra.+ Read More
My son has really been enjoying his lessons. He just started in the fall and was able to pick up a new song and play it a home. I’m very impressed with what he’s learning from Felicia. She creates a warm encouraging environment for him to learn in. I highly recommend her for lessons+ Read More
She's very friendly and helpful all around! Felicia is great with rooting out what needs to be worked on from piece to piece and helping to fix that.
Felicia works with me at my own pace. She pushes me to do better and work harder in a way that is encouraging and motivating. She is always on time and never cancels a lesson without notice. She is extremely knowledgeable in every instrument she teaches and in vocals. Her background is teaching so this gives her the ability to provide the best learning environment for each of her students.+ Read More
