Hello! I have been teaching stringed instruments for about 25 years. I also have 16 years of experience teaching in public schools.I studied music (along with French and English) as an undergrad at Indiana State University. I love teaching especially when students have an “aha” moment and get something that had previously been challenging. I believe that anyone can learn to play a musical instrument. I work hard to individualize instruction for each student. I also try to work with students’ schedules so that scheduling is not interfere with the ability to take lessons.

    Frequently asked questions

    I first get to know the student and find out his/her goals for studying the new instrument.  I then assess the new student's skills and determine where to begin in terms of curriculum.  I discuss with my student the agenda for a typical lesson. I also discuss practice and encourage my student to practice as much as possible on a daily basis (even if it's only 10-15 minutes). I answer any questions my student may have and then we begin the first lesson.

    I studied music at Indiana State University.  I have been teaching privately since 1994. I have taught independently as well as in schools/studios in Florida and North Carolina including Bringe Music, Wendelken Music Studio, Music Showcase, OnStage, and Piedmont Music and Dance. I regulary play all 4 of the instruments that I teach.  

    I charge $20 for a half hour, $30 for 45 minutes, and $35 for an hour.

    I began teaching when I was still a college student at the urging of one of my violin and viola teachers.  She had too many students, so I took on her overflow.

    I have worked with students of all ages (from 7-68) and all abilities (beginner to advanced). I have taught gifted students as well as students with special needs.

    Talk to the teacher. Have a conversation about what you are looking for and how the teacher teaches and what approach he/she will use when teaching you. The conversation will tell you quite a bit about what your lessons will be like.
