Our Suzuki families have engaged parents who come to lessons and classes with the child each week, direct home practice, and join in the fun of making music together while creating wonderful musicians and characters.
We have several adult students, too, who relish playing and socializing together, with weekly lessons and occasional get-togethers.
Many of my students have gone on to conservatories and professional careers in music, playing in symphonies and quartets around the country and in Asia.
I love teaching Suzuki families to play and study with love, self-discipline, and joy. I appreciate those daring enough to perform and to venture into fiddle, jazz, and music from other cultural traditions. We supplement violin study with keyboards, ukuleles, and harmonicas.

Come meet us and listen to at least one lesson and class. We're a small group, and like a lot of personal interaction. Listen to the recordings until your ear knows them, and learn pieces on the keyboard. We'll carefully set up technique one element at a time to make this complex activity easy.
Lots. Check my website, www.kariviolinqueen.com
Again, check website, especially for Suzuki students. For adult students, $50/hour or 425/30-minute lessons.
13 years of university teaching and teacher training, all ages from 3 or 4 to retirees over the years. Used to specialize in professionals-in-training, now am delighted to work with everyone who loves music and wants good lives for their children.
Joining with area Suzuki students for retreats and institutes. Playing at farmers' markets. Watching concertmaster Frank Almond work with advanced players in a master class.
Visit and see how compatible both parties seem to be. Perhaps visit several people. Be willing to wait if there are not current vacancies.
