Since 2008 I have maintained an active music studio teaching both violin and viola! My lessons are designed around you and your goals for music. I use a combination of Suzuki method and traditional (meaning you'll learn how to read music right away if you can't already) My lessons are catered to your needs, but warm ups, scales, etudes and repertoire are the building blocks of my lessons. Technique is a huge part of the way I teach--so you'll definitely get a solid understanding of how to play beautifully and accurately! I'm a relaxed and gentle teacher, and I'm never going to have anything but a smile on my face, so there's no need to feel stressed or nervous.
I am capable of teaching beginner, intermediate, and advanced students for the violin. As for the viola, cello, string bass, and piano, I offer lessons for beginner and intermediate students.
For beginner string students, I start with focusing on the Suzuki Method, along with material from the Essential Elements series. Beginner piano students will focus on repertoire from Alfred's Basic Piano Library. Further repertoire will vary for intermediate and advanced musicians.
For beginner students, I will provide a variety of suggestions when purchasing instruments. There will also be a list of repertoire provided for all levels.
I will provide lessons at my home, and am also willing to travel within 25 miles. Depending on the distance, fees will vary for traveling.
I expect my students to provide their own instruments and books. I also expect students to have a stand if the lesson is at their home, in the case that students travel to have lessons at my home, I will provide
I can teach beginning-advanced viola students, and I can also help a student in the process of switching from violin to viola.
