My style is to make the violin come alive by you! Though the violin is a difficult and time-consuming instrument, the results are so very rewarding. One of my greatest joys is seeing my students grow as musicians; learning to teach themselves and come to understand the way of music and the violin. Expect my lessons to be relaxed and flexible, but full of energy and intention, fostering an exciting learning experience!

I'm a Portland native who firmly believes that music is a lifelong pursuit. Whether playing music for fun, school, or even competition, there's always something new to learn and experience. My music adventures began with piano lessons, then switched to the clarinet when the first band was formed at my elementary school. Little did I know i'd still be playing and having as much fun as when I first started. Having played in a variety of ensembles throughout my life, it is a joy to currently play in the Portland Wind Symphony which exemplifies music performance at a high level even after finishing school.

I encourage my students to find their highest potential, starting students as early as 3 years old. I like to see my students making good progress through daily practice and by leading them gradually to more and more advanced stages. One of my goals is to teach them not to compare themselves with other students but to do their own personal best. I like to teach all ages. I teach all levels of violin, beginner through intermediate in viola, and beginning level in cello, guitar and ukulele.

My students describe me as genuine and passionate with a youthful, energetic teaching style.  Lessons are always enjoyable and productive.  I show my students techniques to focus, and get more done with less wasted time. I cater my lessons to fit the student's learning style and to maximize potential.  Music is truly a passion for me and I enjoy seeing my students grow! My creativity and patience allow me to explain concepts that may have stumped you in the past. Every week we will set goals that will keep you motivated and excited.

With new students, my first goal is to surmise what they have learned thus far. I then "fill in the gaps" to get them up to speed, which depending on their skill level, can take one lesson or many lessons. For younger students who need more inspiration to be able to do that sort of catch-up work, I attempt to balance the fun with the learning. Learning instrument technique can be tedious, so I do my best to help my students be aware of their weaknesses and play to their strengths, to work smarter, not always harder. Depending on my initial interaction with the student, I determine whether a series of method books (think Mel Bay) or a more intensive study book (think Noad, Solo Guitar Playing), or the non-book path is appropriate.

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.
