I have been professionally teaching beginning, intermediate and advanced level string students for fifteen years. I earned a Bachelor of Music Education from University of Nebraska-Lincoln and a Master of Education from Baker University. I has been playing the violin for most of my life and specialize in music education, solo performance, chamber music and orchestral performance.
While attending the University of Nebraska, I held roles as concertmaster and associate concertmaster of the Symphony Orchestra. I also was an undergraduate teacher for the UNL String Project. Following my undergraduate education, I taught elementary and middle school Orchestra for the Blue Valley School District in Overland Park, Kansas. During my seven year public teaching tenure, I served as chairperson for the NEKMEA Middle Level Honors Orchestra for two years and chairperson for the Blue Valley Middle Level Solo and Ensemble Festival for seven years. I started my private string studio after moving to the Denver metro area with my husband in 2012. Learn more about lessons on my website at violinerin.com

If the student has never played their instrument before, I check that their instrument is the correct size. Then I put tapes on their instrument and show them how to put their shoulder rest on. Then we are ready to start learning to play the instrument. If they have played before, I have them play a little bit for me, so I can assess where exactly we should start in the books. I teach mostly classical music with other styles as just supplemental music.
