Overview:
I am a dedicated and hard working teacher. I graduated from the University of Idaho with my degree in Instrumental Music Education in May 2014. During my time in school, I was actively involved in the community orchestra (Washington-Idaho Symphony), Sigma Alpha Iota (a philanthropic music fraternity for women), and held various leadership positions in other organizations, all while maintaining my own private studio and teaching through the Preparatory Division at the University of Idaho. My time in Arizona has been spent teaching private lessons to all instruments at a private school and teaching at another private school's after school program.
EXPERIENCE
I have been teaching private violin lessons since I was in high school-about 7 years ago. I have always had an influx of violin students and was employed by the University of Idaho to teach private violin lessons for their Preparatory Division. My primary instrument is violin, but I also play viola, cello, saxophone and clarinet fluently. My lessons focus around creating characteristic sound and correct technique, as well as short lessons on music history and theory to keep the students' music education well rounded. My previous students range from age 3 to age 50, so I have experience in all age groups. I find all aspects of music absolutely fascinating and love sharing my enthusiasm and knowledge with my students.
METHODS USED
I start string students in the Suzuki method books. I teach in a Suzuki influenced style, but I start students reading right away. If the student is able to read words, they are ready to read notes and reading music is an essential part of a student's music education. For many younger students, I will also create etudes to accompany their Suzuki pieces. Woodwind students will start in the Rubank series and work on other technique building exercises. These methods are how I typically start my students, but more advanced and adult students will likely use different materials based on ability level and interests. All students receive a monthly practice sheet to log their practicing habits. I keep a sheet for my own records with detailed notes so I can plan the next week's lesson.
LESSON STYLE
My teaching style varies from student to student because all students learn differently. What does not change from student to student is the exitement and enthusiasm I bring to every lesson. I genuinely love to teach and if my students are not loving to learn, I need to change my approach. I also believe in strong communication, so students and parents are always aware of my expectations. Above all else, students should be learning in their lessons, cultivating a love and appreciation for music, and enjoying their lessons. Music lessons should always be a positive experience!

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.
