Hello and thanks for visiting my webpage on Take Lessons. My name is Kendra, and I have been performing and teaching professionally for over 30 years. I received my performance training at Colorado University in Boulder and Brandon University in Manitoba, Canada. My career as a teacher, recording artist, and performer in classical, jazz, blues, folk, American and Irish fiddle, pop, and latin music has enabled me to tailor my students learning experience. I look forward to helping you learn to play, improve, enrich your life, and meet your musical goals.

Ms. Kendra has been my daughter’s teacher for about two years. They have completed Suzuki book one and are in the middle of book two. Ms. Kendra guides the class very skillfully and redirects my daughter when she is not engaged. The thirty minute lesson is very productive. My daughter feels like she has made good progress and loves her instrument because of Ms. Kendra. Ms. Kendra also helps me to manage the instrument, tuning, caring and suggesting maintenance. Ms. Kendra is also very easy to communicate with and fair about scheduling. Thanks for everything Ms. Kendra.
I know Kendra professionally through our participation in community orchestras and through playing many church and wedding jobs together. She is a very talented musician, able to perform either the viola or the violin. Kendra has a very pleasant personality for working with any age group and makes sure her students learn appropriate technique and study good repertoire. Anyone would be fortunate to study with Kendra.
My 9 year-old son looks forward to his lesson with Kendra every week! He has made great progress over the past year, thanks to her effective teaching and encouraging manner.
