I love helping all students achieve their goals. I've been teaching since I was in the 8th grade. I have my Bachelor's of Music degree with a concentration in violin performance. The violin and piano are my main instruments I learned as a child. Along the way, I learned how to play viola acello as well. I like to make learning an experience that is memorable to the individual student. I teach core repertoire along with music the student may like to learn. This ranges from pop to rock music. I always marry their love of different genres into Classical and the necessary foundations to be taught with each specific instrument.
Seeing the proverbial "lightbulb" moment switch on for my students. When they start to enjoy the fruits of their labor through my guidance, it makes it so worthwhile and joyous to me! That is something money can never buy.
I figure out how best they learn at the initial lesson. I find out what certain goals they may have for their music. For example: Do they want to learn pop songs? Get better at a certain genre of music? Afterwards, I use that knowledge to help point out certain techniques and tools they can utilize during the time they do individual practice on their own in order to maximize their progress in between lessons.
I hold a Bachelor's of Music Degree with a concentration in Violin Performance. I am well-rounded with music theory knowledge as well as performance. I have experience performing with many orchestras. I have played for countless well-known musical venues/gigs. Teaching since the 8th grade and trained by many amazing musicians, I love passing on that wealth of knowledge to my own students!
