Lesson Details

As an experienced musician, composer, and teacher, I've been trained by some of the best music professionals in the PNW. After 6 years of teaching violin and piano, I know how to best fit my students needs. Whether you're a beginner or intermediate player, we'll work on developing fundamental skills. In our lessons we'll focus on technique, music theory, sight reading, learning your favorite music, and most importantly how to be relaxed and have fun! I believe the best musicians are the ones who play because of their love for music.

Teaching since:
2012

At a very young age I discovered my passion for music. As a child I was involved in numerous state choirs, prestigious orchestras, and symphonies. In college, I studied piano performance, music composition, and played violin in the Western Washington University Symphony. Throughout my music education I was instructed by some of the greatest teachers and conductors in the PNW, all of whom used different teaching styles and techniques. I've taught both piano and violin for 6 years and incorporate what I've learned to personalize lessons for each student.
In my experience, people learn best when they enjoy the music they're learning and become aware of their progress and accomplishments. I encourage my students to be patient when learning a difficult piece or gaining new skills. Like anythings progress takes a little time and hard work, but that doesn't mean you can't have fun along the way!

Patient and caring instructor! Allows you to choose what you want to play instead of choosing music for you. I chose a composition by Hayao Miyazaki, as I always loved his music. Showed me websites I could use to support my learning, as well as provided relevant assignments. Taught me about musicality, rather than just playing the notes. Helped me with reading spacing between notes as intervals rather than looking at the notes themselves which was very helpful
