About this pro

I feel I'm good at working with an individual's strengths and weaknesses to bring out their personal best. I strive for optimal technical training, balanced with the recognition that violin playing should also be rewarding & fun musically.  

I've taught in the KC area since 1978. My undergrad degree is MusEd. I have a MMus (and DMA, all but dissertation) in violin performance.

Every student is unique!

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

I assess current strengths and weaknesses. The strenghths are a springboard for immediate motivation & success. The areas needing improvement or advancement can be approached step by step for a solid, well-rounded foundation.

How did you get started teaching?

I wrote an essay in 5th grade saying I wanted to teach violin. I forgot about writing it until my mom showed it to me... 10 years after I'd established my first violin studio.

What types of students have you worked with?

All types, from extremely gifted to autistic, everything in between.

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

Know that you can commit to daily practice (or at minimum 5 days/week). It's like exercise: not much fun & demanding, but you'll see results and gain irreplaceable rewards.
