I began playing violin at age 4 over 20 years ago and have been teaching since age 17. I studied at the Newark Community School of the Arts for 12 years and in the Greater Newark Youth Orchestra where I played at the New Jersey PAC and Historic Symphony Hall. I've taken master classes from John Smith (teacher to Regina Carter), and taught by global performer Aiko Goto and several teachers from Juliard including Hiroshima Shimura, I have performed at festivals and weddings and taught across the country in orchestras, quartets and music camps. Most of my teaching has been with private students age range has been from 3-67
*** Lesson Details ***
I specialize in beginner and intermediate instruction and music theory (how to hold, how to read music, how to play by ear). I teach using the Suzuki method as well as a creative process to write, read, and execute your own music. Solo pieces, holiday music, chamber quartet or orchestral arrangements etc. I have years of experience teaching adults because I believe it's never too late to learn and all people should have access to learn the arts. I teach out of my building's private room in miami beach and there is street parking after 5pm. I am the only searchable south beach violin teacher.

she was great
Great at explaining in a way where a child or some of us more chronologically advanced students can understand. This makes it exciting to learn.
My daughter likes Monique. She is nice , patient and knowledge
The lesson was good considering that I haven't picked up my violin in about 7 years and instructor was knowledgeable but parking was kind of difficult for a Saturday afternoon so hopefully weekdays will be better.
