Teaching since:
August 2009

Teaching violin has been a rewarding experience for myself and my students! Using the Suzuki method, students are able to play the violin at young ages which is great for brain development, learning to control sounds, and also learning to be disciplined in as as they learn to practice in small amounts! The Suzuki method is a great starting point, but other methods are also fun: Mark O'Conner, All for Strings, Essentials for Strings, Sassmanshaus, etc.

Heather C.

Heather has been teaching private lessons and small group classes using the Suzuki method since she became certified, about 4 years ago, in Suzuki Books 1-3!
Unsure about the Suzuki method? There are many other method books full of great principles that Heather also loves to work out of!
