How did you get started teaching?

During my graduate work at the University of Denver I started running a Suzuki Strings program at a private school in Denver and continued teaching private Suzuki violin and viola lessons at my home studio.


What types of students have you worked with?

I work with students of all ages. Most of my students are 3 years old through adults. I accept students of all abilities and levels.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I enjoy attending and teaching at the Colorado Suzuki Association Fall Festival each year. I'm also a huge fan of the Colorado Symphony!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I highly recommend selecting a teacher that you feel will be a good fit with your family. I recommend choosing a Suzuki teacher that is trained at least through book 8, has a masters degree in music, offers group classes, and is commited to continuing education.


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

Students need to consider when they will practice. When looking at your schedule, make sure that you think about what times you are available for lessons AND for practice. If you are only available for lessons one afternoon a week think very carefully about whether or not you are too busy to take lessons. Students are expected to practice at least five days a week in addition to their weekly lesson, group classes, workshops, and recitals.
