Teaching since:


I'm Shayna. I have been teaching violin and viola for over 8 years. I have studied with professors from The Juilliard School, Cleveland Institute of Music, Southern Methodist University, and University of Houston. I have also studied extensively with members of the Houston Symphony, Dallas Symphony, and the Boulder Bach Festival in Colorado.

I enjoy teaching all styles, anything from jazz to pop to classical.

I have experience working with all ages and skills levels. One of my most recent projects was teaching a choir of over 40 seniors who have Dementia. I have also worked with students with Autism and various physical disabilities. I believe that everyone who feels called to learn music should have access to an understanding, accommodating, and experienced teacher.

I'd love to work with you! Let's achieve musical growth together.

Shayna is great! She has taught violin to my two daughters for the past five years. She is kind to the entire family and makes learning fun for my girls. I always hear them laughing!
