Here are points about my credentials and experience:
For twenty-one years, I have been teaching violin & viola to students ranging in age from 5 years and into adulthood. And I love it!
Initially, my private violin and viola lessons were hosted in service of the middle and high school orchestras of the school districts of Carrollton & Lewisville, Texas. I have helped many orchestra students develop their playing and meet the demands of their school orchestra programs as well as other honors orchestras in the area such as the UIL Region Orchestra, and Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra.
Inspired by the progress and success of my students in their school orchestra programs, and envisioning a way in which I can make an even greater impact in the second part of my teaching career, I have completed many classes of specialized training for the Suzuki Violin Method for books 1--8. This training has enabled me to deepen my service to older students, and to begin teaching younger students (as young as five years old) in a way that is age appropriate, and yet effective.
For parents interested to begin their children in the Suzuki Violin Method, I love to serve families who value instrumental music and who often discover that studying a musical instrument can have a dramatic positive impact on their childs learning, self-concept, and social development. I appreciate the fact that parents are involved in the Suzuki course of study. And they are able to observe lessons and follow through as effective practice partners with their children. Learning Suzuki Violin can provide an opportunity for the quality time that so many parents are craving to spend with their children as they are building talents in their family.
