I have had many years of experience teaching violin and viola. My main desire in teaching is that students remain interested and really like their musical studies and their lessons. Communication is very free both to and from students. I insist students KNOW what they are doing both mentally and physically. I also am very aware of handling misunderstood words and symbols and the importance of gradients in any learning endeavor. I teach students how to study what they are working on.
