I am a professional violin, fiddle, and viola instructor offering studio lessons for kids and adults. I teach out of locations in Palo Alto and San Jose. I have performed in orchestras, chamber music groups, bluegrass bands, and country bands, throughout the bay area. I have played violin since 1988 and taught since 2003. I hold a Bachelor of Music (violin performance) from San Francisco State University and an A.A. in Comprehensive Musicianship (music theory and performance) from De Anza College.
· Violin · In home I'm 57 years old, have never played before. Margaret made me feel relaxed and confident.
Excellent teacher, very attentive, very patient and good communication skills. I look forward to my coming lessons.
· Violin · In studio Margaret is very good
· Fiddle · In studio I took took violin lessons from Margaret for a few months. She is very good at explaining concepts and teaching technique. She helped me correct my technique from what I was taught by another teacher I was with briefly and that helped immensely. I highly recommend taking lessons with Margaret!
