Overview:
I have loved music since I was child, asking for my first violin when I was three and continuing on to learn to play 8 different instruments.  My first loves have always been piano, violin and singing.  I adore music theory and enjoy composition as much as learning new pieces. I participated in numerous choirs and orchestras throughout my high school and college experiences, and continued to perform after college with local music groups and community choirs.  I have taught since 1994 and continue to teach today because of my love for music and the joy of teaching.
EXPERIENCE
I enjoy music and enjoy passing my love of music on to my students. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Music in 2002, have taught since 1994 and have maintained a steady studio since 2000. My students have ranged in age from 3 to 80+ and I have taught piano, violin, flute and cello, though I choose to focus on piano and violin now. Most of my students have continued in their musical careers after lessons, with some graduating with degrees in music and others pursuing envolvment in local orchestras or musical groups.  I encourage all my students to participate in regular recitals and performance opportunities.
METHODS USED
Because each student is an individual, I believe in tailoring their musical experience to fit the individual.  I have experience teaching in Faber & Faber, Thompson, Bastien and Alfreds for the piano, and Leonards and Suzuki for violin (although I am not a Suzuki teacher and am not impressed with the method, I love the literature!).  Music is a language, and as with any language I believe in teaching a firm foundation of vocabulary and grammer, which in music is theory.  With a proper understanding of theory, a student can play any style of music they desire, and are proficient to fully enjoy the world of music.
LESSON STYLE
Music is fun!  I tell each of my students that if they are not having fun to let me know because that means I'm doing something wrong.  Music can be work, but it is also joy.  I love seeing my students fall in love with music and exploring their personal expression and emotion through the pieces we tackle together.  Each student is different, and their focus and experience of music will be different.  I strive in lessons to harness their potential and encourage them to continue to explore how they relate to the music they are learning.  By making music personal, interactive and relational, nearly all my students leave with a deeper understanding and love of the art.

No credit card required.

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.
