    Ms. Shane taught my son Violin for over 2 years. She was a great teacher. The best part my son liked was that she would play the piano when he played violin.


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Lessons are set into 3 parts and also include physical expercises that build multiple responses and skills.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have 3 degrees in Music and teach and perform on an equal basis.  I have an Education degree as well as a special "String Specialist" training.  I also attended Music Camps for 8 years including the famous Meadowmount School of Music in New York-4 summers.

I am a 4th generation to show musical talent in our family.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Intermediate and advanced Lessons start at $65 an hour.  Students are given written directions and note writing assignments to further understand the composing side of music.

Beginner lessons are $55 an hour, which includes performing with piano accompaniment, note writing, and physical exercises.

How did you get started teaching?

I had many inspiring teachers who made Music fun and interesting.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with all ages and tailor my program with many shortcuts.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I composed a complete and original Violin composition for a young advanced studend.  The composition showed some easy yet complicated-sounding notes that made a beautiful, original sound-sounds that made the violin a beautiful instrument!

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

Choose a teacher with real Music training and degrees.  Too much negativity isspread by untrained teachers-.

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

Students should ask if their teacher has had any contracted performing and teaching experience.
