I teach violin / fiddle not through one method or genre but a unique blend of various styles, each one taking a fundamental seat in a broader performance curriculum. For example, beautiful classical pieces form our most baseline technique while country western or bluegrass make for a strong and agile bow, not to mention having some tricks to merry up the campfire or front porch gatherings. Pop / Blues / Jazz and Rock n Roll are perfect genres for prospective improvisors and future stage performers. From Lindsey Stirling to Charlie Daniel's Band to Stephane Grapelli I enjoy teaching towards the goals and dreams of every student.

Kelly is a very talented and skilled violin player. She makes the lessons very relaxed and is great at teaching online, I've found the lessons so useful as I'm a complete beginner at the fiddle. She's extremely knowledgeable and knows all there is know about the violin/fiddle, I can not reccomend her enough.

Kelly is a wiz at the fiddle, and just a music genius all together. She has taught me so many things that have helped me with my skills, and makes it feel easy. She’s also very patient, which makes me feel at more comfortable with the learning process. Anyone would be very lucky to have her for their teacher!
