Overview

So you've decided to put a bit more music in you life? You've come to the right place! I have over 15 years of experience, and have been giving private instruction since 2008. Over the years I've developed a unique teaching style on violin, fiddle, and banjo that's best suited to help you learn.

From beginner to advanced, I'm focused on helping you hit your musical ambitions! I also have had the priviledge of over a decade of stage performances to bring to your lesson.

*** Lesson Details ***
I want you to have fun learning and can help you with understanding and application. I am flexible on curriculums. You do get to choose the areas you would like to learner improve on.

Once we have established the fundamentals, we'll choise songs you want to learn to play with your friends or just by yourself. We can use a specific book series or even go on YouTube to learn an arrangement. I have helped students with auditions as well as performances. After only a few lessons you will hear and see things in a new and fun way!

I like lessons from ya because I get to count and read music, which is more challenging, in a sense, because I had to memorize music in my previous class and move through music much more quickly.

I think lessons are great for me, and I think that I'm getting better and better at the violin. But the violin book 2 and the C major scale studies are hard, but I bet we will get through them together. Thank you for all that you have done!

Halston is an outstanding young man! He's a very patient and effective teacher who can work well with about anyone! If not for him, I would still be working on the basic banjo rolls.

Halston is a great teacher that is always very helpful and patient. He always makes sure that you've learned something at the end of a lessons and that you understand it.

He is a very good teacher and helps when I need it. He explains things and goes into detail when needed. He demonstrates whenever I need him to. To sum things up he is an amazing violin teacher, and is very fun!

I was a little hesitant deciding to learn the fiddle at 32 years old, but Halston has made each lesson very informative and relaxed. I walk away from each lesson with new skills and confidence. Learning the fiddle with Halston has been a wonderful experience so far!

I like Halston because he is nice and funny! Halston is a great teacher because he teaches me something new every lesson. Halston also helps me all the way through every song we are learning. I am actually glad he is my teacher because he doesn't always make sense and that funny, but I like him anyway!
