I'm a classically trained Suzuki violin/viola teacher and although I teach classical technique, sight reading, orchestra coaching etc, I also specialize in pop/rock violin, bluegrass, country and folk music, as well as musical improv! I also play and teach mandolin, ukulele and voice, and I love to customize music lessons to fit the individual interests of each student. If you're interested in a multi-faceted approach to music and strings instruction in particular, I'm your gal! I also teach music theory and songwriting.

About Phoebe S.

Hello! I'm a violinist, multi-instrumentalist, singer, former actress, current rockstar and lover of teaching! My background is in classical violin and voice; I'm a third-generation Suzuki violin teacher. I have played with symphony orchestras, toured the US and Canada as a folk-rock musician, sung off-Broadway, played with various bands at iconic venues in New York and Los Angeles, taught musical theater performance, rock band camp, and private violin, voice, ukulele, mandolin, music theory, musical improv, songwriting and performance technique! I love to bring all of my versatility as a musician and performer to the table when I teach, and I love to tailor my approach to suit each student's individual interests. Whether you want to learn symphonies, write songs, or just generally rock out, let's make music together!

The teacher was amazing. My 8 year old kept telling me she didn't want to play violin anymore. I figured it was because of the instructor and I was right. Phoebe was on time, professional, educated, and super fun. I literally never heard my daughter play so smoothly. And when she left my girl gave her two thumbs up and did cartwheels and said she couldn't wait for her next lesson. We made the best choice with Phoebe. She's a really sweet girl and is extremely patient. Throughly satisfied and look forward to a million more fruitful learning experiences :)
