My love of music and sharing that through one on one instruction has only increased over the course of my career. I began studying violin and viola during my primary education. With the tutelage of my wonderful private instructor, I was able to successfully audition and perform with various orchestral groups. This experience inspired me to continue my musical studies and performance at the University of Colorado and the University of Brandon (Canada). During the course of my professional career I have expanded my studies to other musical genres including blues, jazz, rock, folk, latin, and fiddle styles. This opened the door to freelance, record, and perform in various venues while maintaining a 'classical' career as well. Whether online or in person, I tailor the lesson for each of my students to be able to pursue their particular musical interests while learning a solid classical approach to technique and theory.

It's amazing how remote sessions with Kendra would be this effective for my 12-year old daughter. Definitely planning on continuing the lessons!

All I can say is that Kendra has been the perfect teacher for my daughter. Very patient and with clear direction. Many times she goes over the time limit too which indicates she is more about helping the student.

Mrs. Kendra was very sweet and patient with my 4 year old daughter. I can see that Mrs. Kendra has a lot of teaching experience and a very welcoming personality. We are looking forward to more lessons :)

Kendra is an amazing viola teacher. Since this was my first online lesson ever, I was skeptical at first. However, Kendra's kindness and positive attitude assured me that I had made the right decision. She covers many aspects of both the technical parts of handling the viola, as well as perfecting intonation and handling a wide variety of styles of music. She also is attentive to specific needs, and accomodates for different paths depending on individual goals. Thanks for all you do for me Kendra!

Not only is Kendra a gifted musician, she has the ability to teach, which is a rare talent. I'd highly recommend Kendra for beginning to advanced students!

Kendra has been tutoring one of my daughters for about 2-1/2 years, and tutored my other daughter for about 6 months. We have been extremely pleased with the progress they both have made working with Kendra. She is very good at identifying where a student needs to make corrections and does it in a way that is positive and easy to understand. She is excellent at helping students find their own voice - interpreting the music and infusing creativity and meaning into each piece. We really appreciate how she has individualized her teaching approach to each of my girls' needs and goals, and how she is always positive and enthusiastic about their progress. When Kendra moved out of state, we opted to continue lessons with her online rather than find a new local teacher because she has been (and continues to be) such a great instructor. I highly recommend Kendra as a violin/viola teacher.
