I am an instructor who will focus on technique and musicality and make lessons very engaging and fun. I have a Master's Degree in Music from Duquesne University where I served as a concertmaster and a Bachelor's Degree from Southeastern Louisiana University where I was contracted musician with Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra.
I have been teaching privately since 2003. In 2005 I Was hired as a violin instructor at Southeastern Louisiana Community Music School where I taught for 5 years. After my Graduate studies I accepted a teaching position at Duquesne University City Music Center.
I devise a unique program for each individual student. I do not beleive in using the same method for every student because of the differences in the ways students digest the information. I do offer performing opportunities with piano accompaniment as well as master classes to interested students on monthly basis
I do a lot of demonstrations and use analogies from the realm of physics to describe the violin technique. I do focus on Musicality and musical phrasing.
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.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
