FAQs


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

I always offer a free trial lesson and consultation! We first look at age, prior experience (if any), and supplies needed. I love to hear what students are interested in learning, and incorporate that into my curriculum. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I began playing the violin at age four. She began teaching violin lessons at the age of fifteen, and has had dozens of students over the years. I received her Bachelor Degree in Violin Performance in 2010 from Utah State University, studying with Yi Ching Fedkenheuer. Under the direction of former Fry Street Quartet violist Russell Fallstad, I helped restructure the Utah State University String Academy. During that time, I  planned recitals, concerts, group classes and special events for the program. I also taught Suzuki orientation classes to parents of beginning violinists. I was taught using the Suzuki method. She has completed several Suzuki teacher training courses, under acclaimed pedagogues Judy Bossuat, Mimi Zweig and Ronda Cole.

How did you get started teaching?

I knew from the age of four that I wanted to teach! When I was fifteen years old, I began receiving requests to teach my neighbors, friends, etc. Since then I have made it a career, and I enjoy every minute of it.


What types of students have you worked with?

I’ve taught students from age 3-mid 60’s. I’ve had several students on the autism spectrum, and another student with Down Syndrome. Some of my students have had ADHD, and others have suffered trauma. I’ve taken transfer students at all ages, beginners in adulthood, and everything between that. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Go with your gut! Read bios, but look for a good interpersonal fit. Personality is just as important as experience.


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

Think about what goals you may have in mind. Why you are deciding to pick up the violin, for example. Once you have that base, it’s fairly simple to go from there.
