My name is Caitlin. I enjoy teaching! My primary instrument is the violin which I've been teaching for over 10 years! I am a patient but firm teacher with realistic expectations for my students. I enjoy working with students who like to learn about music. It is my goal that some of my students will be independent musicians and that all of my students would appreciate music. I have a B.S. in Music Education from Trevecca Nazarene University and a minor in performance violin. I play professionally on aa part time basis as well as teach. I use a varied version of the Suzuki violin method. i have taken a couple Suzuki classes and enjoy some of its teaching methods. I also use the Elements 2000 book which helps introduce the violin to my students. It is a good beginners book. I hold student recitals at the public library quarterly and enjoy organizing concerts and events alike. My students enjoy performing all of the songs they have worked on for months. I believe that music is powerful and we should have a chance to experience it. Whether by playing an instrument or listening to aa song.
