Kelsey V

Instruments: Piano Violin

I believe the best teaching method is one that focuses on the accomplishments of each student. I have several different rewards systems that I will use to motivate students to practice at home. Part of this system is encouraging my students to set their own realistic goals and walking them through how to reach them. Additionally, I am a big believer in affirmation and will do my best to encourage each student throughout the lesson. Read More

Instruments: Piano Violin Viola Fiddle

I have played the viola at different gatherings, wedding, and talent shows, as well school performances from middle school through college. I love teaching. I encourage regular practice on a consistent schedule as of the key points for beginners. It is also important to me that students have fun while learning.

Most three-year-olds probably aren’t going to remember everything that was said in a lesson, and they definitely don’t understand why.

Where the lessons take place is really a matter of choice – ask the instructor if they have a preference and what sort of amenities they can offer in their teaching space.
