Hi. I have been playing violin since the age of 10 -- that was forty-five years ago! I have played off and on for most of my adult life. My love for violin increased dramatically when I discovered fiddling. I am a fourth-generation fiddler. I have several college degrees and worked for many years as a computer programmer. I later received an elementary education degree, because my true love in life (after music) is teaching. Most of my teaching experience was in high school subjects (all of them!) in the juvenile justice system. I did teach music to kindergartners and had several older private students through Kindercare. For the kids: I am certified in the Mark O'Connor Method, which emphasizes music of the Americas and encourages creativity. Fun! For adults and interested youth: I

I am California- and Missouri-certified teacher with a Masters in Elementary Education. In addition to 3 years of teaching experiences, I have also been tutoring students from grades 1st through 6th since 2008.

In addition to being qualified to teach Elementary subjects (K-6), I am also available to teach private violin lessons for both beginners and intermediate players. I have attended the music schools at Juilliard and Northwestern University and am currently completing a music degree at UMSL.

I have played violin and viola for 27 years. I have performance awards in college, played in the Lincoln (Nebraska) Symphony Orchestra, and briefly with local community orchestras in St. Louis. In the 2013-2014 school year, I was recipient of the St. Louis Public Schools Music Teacher of the Year award.

In these lessons you should expect to learn the basics of the violin. I can teach you how to hold the violin/bow, play notes, and read music. We would be using a hodgepodge of different techniques to accomplish this and to build basic good technique.
