Overview:

I believe all students can achieve great music making and enjoy a fun and satisfactory journey doing so. I have degrees from Oberlin Conservatory and Indiana University, and currently study at Juilliard as a proud recipient of a Kovner Fellowship. I have built an international career at a young age in both solo and orchestral work. 

EXPERIENCE

 I am experienced in using Suzuki, Indiana String Pedagogy, some Kodaly, and my own method, to foster learning, for students of all ages. I have been teaching children ages 5-18, and adult students, for almost ten years now. Working at Fairview Elementary (Bloomington IN) gave me a great introduction to group teaching in a classroom, which I hope to soon be able to build upon. I also have experience tutoring college students at the Oberlin Conservatory in music theory, ear training, and German. I emphasize technique, efficiency in individual practicing, a strong curriculum of both repertoire and etudes, and having FUN!  I will back whatever my students want to do, whether that be school band, concerts, solo recitals, competitions, college auditions, and more. Teaching truly is a life-long passion of mine.

METHODS USED

The break down for each instrument I teach:  For beginning children violin/viola students, I combine Mimi Zweig's IU String Academy method with Suzuki School training. However, I add in my own emphasis on ten minutes set aside in every lesson for learning to read notes, and for theory and ear training (Yes, even at 6 years old! We work on hearing intervals and naming them).  For beginning children piano students I use Dozen a Day, Bastien, Suzuki, and my own method. Children will learn scales right away from an early age, but will also play fun songs. If my students are young, I incorporate educational games into the lesson specifically for keeping focus. For adult students or teenagers, I tailor more to their needs and individual personalities and requests. This often includes more complex pieces, some Scottish fiddling, and lots of etudes for technique building!

LESSON STYLE

It's very important to me to keep a strong curriculum and honor efficiency in the lesson, but at the same time allow each student to progress at their own rate according to their individual physique and personalities. For kids, I strive to keep the lessons FUN and entertaining as well as highly informative and educational. I always tailor my lesson plan to the individual, based on personality, age, and what they want to get from me!

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.
