Hello and welcome to my TakeLessons profile! My name is Vivian and I have been teaching private lessons on various instruments since 2013. I have also been teaching professionally in public schools since 2015. I play and teach several instruments including Ukulele, French Horn, Trumpet, Clarinet, Trombone, Flute and I also love to sing! In 2015 I graduated with honors from East Carolina University, earning my Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. My students can expect to see improvement week to week in their playing technique. Every musician learns at their own pace, and I will treat you as the individual that you are. I can help any beginner no matter what sort of musical experience they bring to the table! There is no greater joy for me than seeing a student smile and shine when they master a new note, song, or technique. It is those precious lightbulb moments that made me fall in love with teaching! --- Some "Fun Facts" about me: *I LOVE to play video games!!! (Xbox1, Mobile, and PC) *I'm a bookworm and I am always reading something new *I have 2 dogs, their names are Ollie and Lily *I listen to ALL kinds of music! Yes I really do mean ALL!!! I listen to Pop, R&B, Jazz, Rock, Reggaeton, Rap, Classical, Country, Oldies, Bluegrass, Alternative, Funk, Techno....the list goes on forever!

Vivian is wonderful to work with. She is so encouraging for my daughter and provides great advice for helping her. I recommend Vivian for anyone wanting to improve their skills from someone who is patient, kind and very knowledgeable.
VIVIAN IS FANTASTIC!!!!!!
Vivian is a very sweet person who is interested in her student and works at every level to understand the requirements of the student and meet those requirements in the best way. She is encouraging, understanding, and also a good listener -- conscientiously responding to details. Today was just our first intro lesson and I'm sure that I will learn a lot from her! Thank you so much Vivian for your kindness!
