My teaching style is fun and relaxed! I focus first and foremost on teaching the enjoyment of music, and let everything else develop from there.

During lessons I teach sheet music literacy, violin skills and techniques, music theory, and composition. Sheet music is an important part of playing the violin, so we begin working with it from day one. While teaching new skills and techniques I love to explain why we do things the way we do, and give examples of how it can improve one's sound. This helps make the "boring stuff" much more interesting and fun. In addition, I like to include theory and composition because they wonderfully round out students' musicianship. Theory is key to understanding why music works the way it does, and enables students to collaborate with others in a multitude of settings. Composition is often my students' favorite part of the lesson, because it empowers them and allows them to explore and be creative, while building confidence and technical skills.

Performance is a key part of playing an instrument, and I will assist students with any and all performance repertoire, from orchestra pieces to worship music to rock band setlists.

About Ruby B.

Hi! I'm Ruby.

I'm a Senior Music Major at the University of South Alabama, and a member of the USA Honors College. I have been playing the violin for 16 years, and teaching for 3. Over the years, I have been trained in several different styles and genres, and I love to teach each one of them. I have experience with an orchestra, chamber ensemble, Celtic group, church worship team, and contemporary band.

Teaching is one of my favorite things in the world, and to me the best part is watching students grow in their musicianship and love of music. I always make sure that my students have a voice in what we work on in lessons, and find great joy in working with my students' goals and aspirations.

Feel free to contact me with any questions! I am always willing to chat with future students to determine compatibility and make long-term learning goals.
