I will teach students from grade 5 through adults. Basic experience (1 to 2 years) is preferred, although I will consider working with beginners on a case by case basis. I taught instrumental music, including string specialist work, for 33 years full time and three years part time in the Maryland public schools. I have been a professional freelance musician for the past 51 years (and am still actively performing!)
My professional performing experience through online bookings can be found at:
I have ALWAYS enjoyed working with enthusiastic and motivated students!

I interview them to assess their interests, goals and motivation. Then I have them play a prepared piece, if they already have experience. This may take up to 40 minutes of the first hour-long lesson. I only teach for one hour (60 minutes) at a time.
