I am a professional teacher as well as cellist of 10 years and violinist of 4 years. I have a degree in Music Education with an Instrumental Emphasis. I student taught in Middle and Elementary Orchestra, have coached numerous small string ensembles, and I currently teach Elementary Music. I have experience with learners of a variety of styles and ages. Three words to describe my teaching style are: positive, patient, and firm.
I am currently accepting new students and hoping to expand my studio. Whether you would like to keep maintain skills for casual playing, progress rapidly with year-round weekly lessons, or prepare for an audition, I would love to work with you.
I am not currently accepting students that I must travel to and I do not teach lessons on Saturdays.
I teach online or in my home in Overland Park, KS, Sunday through Friday.
Please contact me with any questions.
I teach General Music to students in grade K-5. We sing, dance, play instruments, and more! Every day is a variety of fun and hands-on music learning.
