The violin showcases a player's talent more than any other instrument, some say. It's the hardest instrument of them all, others say. Whatever your goals, I am happy to play a role in your musical journey with this instrument. Follow a classical, traditional method of my own development that incorporates the most common repertoire sought after in festivals, auditions for orchestras, and auditions for colleges.

Ms. Tasha's exceptional enthusiasm for music shines through in her playing and her unique teaching style. She teaches violin to my daughters and she is a great teacher who is very knowledgeable about the music world. Her lessons are engaging and helpful to move further; she communicates in a way that anyone can understand and does all she can to help them be successful. She teaches at a level that is appropriate for both my daughters and goes out of her way to help each one of them play and comprehend music better.
