Finding an educated player and finding a good teacher are two completely different things. When I see other teacher's profiles, they boast of the years of training they had. Anyone can learn and play. Not anyone can teach. PATIENCE When you know how to teach properly, you have a seemingly endless resource of patience. This is because what the student sees as "patient" is really just a small step in the educational process. It is a fraction of time just before a correction. When you have something new to teach, whether it is a new technique, or a correction of something being done imp

I teach all different styles; classical, bluegrass, improvisation/jazz, rock, folk, hip-hop, you name it. I can help students learn whatever type of music they are interested in, using strong foundations and helping students get comfortable on the instrument. Because of these alternative styles, I also teach electric violin/viola.
The most important part of teaching for me, is helping students learn to express themselves creatively through music.
Music has been a passion of mine since I started music lessons at the age of 6. I founded and directed the Suffolk Chamber Orchestra in high school which performed in weddings, graduations, and outreach community venues such as nursing homes which is just one example of how playing an instrument is a great way to get involved in your community! Music has really broadened my horizons and given me the opportunity to travel. In 2006 I toured as the soloist performer in the LIYO Asia orchestra tour where we performed in cities all over China, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Malay
Learning to Balance the Violin
One of the first steps in playing the violin is holding the instrument. We are actually ‘balancing’ the violin, which means finding a stable placement of the violin between the head, collarbone and shoulder so there is an even distribution of weight. There is a simple scientific principal to keep in mind, namely gravity. Because of gravity, the violin will fall to the ground unless we find the best place for the violin.
Resting Head on Violin
The head can simply rest on the violin. It is not necessary to grip the violin with head and shoulders once balance is

Erin fell in love with the violin at age seven under the instruction of Natalie Colbert at E. Rivers Elementary School in Atlanta, GA. She studied violin through high school and college, and received a BA in Communications with a Minor in Music from Georgia State University.
After a lifelong study of the violin, Erin began to play the viola as a happy accident. As an undergraduate student in college, Erin’s chamber music group needed a violist to play the Schubert Trout Quintet. Never one to turn down a challenge, Erin jumped right in and never looked back. She has played viola in addition t
Teaching is very important to me as a musician because it allows me to impart my knowledge and experience onto my students. I believe everyone has the ability to learn how to play the violin whether beginning as a child, teenager or adult. The most important element is that the student has the determination to learn puts the practice and work into it everyday so that he or she may continue to develop and grow on the Violin.
I teach each of my students based on what is best for their needs. Every person is different and develops at different rates.
I teach privately and have taught in schools
