I am a teacher with over 20 years experiencein Europe and USA.  My violin lessons are entertaining while providing a solid musical structure to build upon. I encourage and inspire my students to do their personal best in a creative, positive and enriching learning environment. I teach students of all ages  using a variety of teaching materials based on the individual students learning style. I enjoy teaching students at various stages in their development whether they are preparing for College or University auditions, studying for their own enjoyment or preparing to join a local community string ensemble or orchestra.

My main goal is to give each student the tools to be successful on their own. This is important because most progress is made outside of the lesson. This includes music reading and general knowledge of the music. I feel that success comes from the student feeling that THEY have accomplished something.

I've been teaching private lessons since 2010. I remember how excited my first student was during our first lesson, as he was learning the chords to his favorite Metallica song. The experience was profoundly motivating for both of us. As a teacher, there's nothing more enjoyable than watching students blossom into the musicians they've dreamed of becoming. During the summer of 2013, I worked as the musical director for a staging of "Waiting for Lefty" at Oracle Productions in Chicago. Many of the actors I worked with had little or no musical experience, but, together, we explored their strengths and weaknesses, and put on a very successful show.

Violin/Viola: I start with music reading using the Essential Elements 2000 series.  This is for two reasons: 1. Is that it's very easy going and doesn't make learning a chore. 2. Is the school system in the district uses the same book, so the student is prepared for orchestra.  Once the student is familiar with everything in EE 2k, he or she "graduates" to The Suzuki Book series. Along with this, we do fun songs like movie themes, fiddle tunes, world music, or rock song intros. Guitar: For students 8 and under I start with Guitar For The Small Fry because it is entertaining to learn from and not overwhelming.  For students 9 to 15, I use Hal Leonard's Guitar Method because it goes at a really nice pace for that age.  For students 16 and older I like using Mel Bay's Guitar Method because it goes a little faster, has more interesting songs for an older person and includes some music theory.  Where we go after these methods is up to the taste and desires of the student.  Along with the music reading books, I like to throw in some simple folk songs, rock song intros, movie themes, or easy rock or blues songs/progressions.

I like to work with a metronome and ask my students to do the same. You can download a free app on your phone or buy one at a fair cost at a music store. Slow and steady wins the race and once that is established we can kick it up a notch.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
