We work hard and play hard. There are a lot of laughs along with learning. I host recitals twice a year for those who would like to showcase their talent and progress, not to mention it's fun!
I use classical as the foundation to teach. I use the method books that apply to the students such as "Essential Elements," "Orchestra Expressions," "All For Strings." Etude books such as Kreutzer, Wohlfarht, Mazas, etc, and a wide variety of solo pieces. I encourage singing as much as possible, and enforce reading concepts, style, and passion.
Everyone is their own person, from adult to child I understand if other activities take precedence or if violin is you number one goal. Either way, I can adapt the lesson to fit your need! Remember the lesson should fit your vision not mine, although I may have some good advice to contribute to your vision.

Carmen has been teaching music for 10 years to children and adults, from age 4 to 50. She is able to teach many genres of music to all levels of musicianship, whether beginner or advanced, whether they want to learn Mozart or Coldplay, Aretha Franklin or Joni Mitchell .
