My desire to teach the violin comes from my very real experience of a life spent with music. Since I became a student myself at the age of 4, I have been learning not just about the violin, but what it means to be a musician. I bring 25 years of my own struggles, accomplishments and understanding to you so that you can grow as a vioinist and a musician!

I have taken piano lessons for the past 17 years and have been teaching for the last 5. While working on my Bachelor of Arts in Music at Willamette University, I decided to give piano lessons during the summer and found it to be an exciting way to connect with new people of all ages, give them a skill that they can use for the rest of their life, and grow as a pianist myself. Now that I have graduated, I am focusing on teaching more full time, and could not be more thrilled about it.

  Beyond the Simandl and Suzuki methods, I use an eclectic array of instructional materials.  For bass, I may employ the books of Mark Morton, Findeisen, Lee, Storch-Hrabe, Bille, Nanny and Rabbath, to name only a few.  I also like many of the standard school methods, such as All for Strings, Strictly Strings, Essential Elements, and Fiddler's Philharmonic.  Regarding cello, Kummer, Dotzauer, Schroeder, Krane and Phyllis Young are some of the wonderful books I have used regularly.  As for violin, the New Tune A Day, Fiddler's Philharmonic and Mel Bay books are my favorites. Most importantly, I try to find materials which challenge the student, while also being very fun, melodic and manageable.

As far as methods, I do not believe that there is one system that will work for every student, and so I try to find the right combination for each individual.  For piano students I begin with a combination of Alfred and Faber method books, and also teach different scales for technique.  For voice students I try to pick a combination of vocal exercises, classical music and contemporary music based on the student’s unique voice.  Students learn best from music they are passionate about.  What is most important is finding the right songs for each person.

Instruments:

I teach using a set of core principals which allows my students to gain control and understanding of the fundamentals of drumming, and more importantly, music.  I work with my students to create short and long term goals, and I construct specific lessons based on these goals.  I regularly learn songs that my students love, and use these songs to teach core concepts and create exercises that are specific to the students interests.  This method of teaching fuels motivation and makes lessons fun, while also providing a solid musical foundation.

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.
