About this pro

Private violin and viola instrustruction with over 25 years experience. I have completed my studies at Champman University with a BS with an emphasis in instrumental performance. I have performed in major venues across the US as a freelance musician, and an 8 year veteran of the AFM in SoCal. I have been a frequant member of the American String Teachers Association  and contracted for a string quartet for over 20 years. Zoom and Skype lessons available.

Students learn the art of playing the violin using proper technique while enjoying themselves. Former students have gone in to perform with major symphonies in the US as well as Europe. They have toured with recording artists Adele, John Legend etc, and even performed with the Vitamin String Quartet and nominated for Grammy’s.

I offer many styles of musical playing and tailor each lesson to the students goals.

i look forward to hearing from you! Cathy

I have always enjoyed seeing the progress my students make and have developed close bonds with working closely with each student. And I love to see them smile!

How did you get started teaching?

I love teaching and this is my passion! I am so grateful to spend with my students and love to watch them grow, no matter the age. 6 years old to 106, I am happy to help you grow your love for music!

A very wide variety from ages 4-83! I accept beginning through advanced students as well as special needs students. I believe every student should have the opportunity to grow their love for the violin!

Schedule a free trial lesson with teachers to make sure your personalities and expectations are the same, and that you are comfortable with your teacher. You should always leave with a smile on your face!

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Ask how much you should practice, what your goals are, what is required of you. Lesson policies and whether the instructor will help prepare for auditions, scholarships, and chair placement testing.
