Overview:
I am a private instructor in the Tacoma, WA area with a passion for helping students love the process of learning and performing music. I am in my final term of completing me Bachelors degree in Music Education with an orchestral emphasis for grades K-12. Studying violin for the last 17 years has shaped my views on the necessity of music in young people's lives and the importance of making learning accessible and rewarding for all students. As a performer, I find the most joy in collaborative music making opportunities and love to spend my time playing in orchestras, small chamber ensembles, and for musical theatre in the greater Seattle area.
EXPERIENCE
I have been teaching privately part time for the past 4 years working with students in grades K-12. My main goal in lessons is for my students to not only succeed at a new skill once, but to be confident in their ability to repeat their success in practice at home and at our next lessons. I encourage positive feedback and positive "self-talk" as a means of boosting self-efficacy. I think an important part of learning is goal setting and outlining specific, achievable steps to reach that goal so that progress can be tracked and the process of learning can become less ambiguous.
METHODS USED
I am not Suzuki certified but I utilize the early Suzuki violin books for repertoire; that being said, I always take the requests of students into account meaning it is important to me that students are learning music they are excited about learning. For beginners who are new to music as a whole, I employ volumes 1 and 2 of "I Can Read Music" to get students learning both pitch and rhythm in easy, digestible, sections. For more advanced students, I am happy to not only assign solo repertoire but help with challenging music and audition material for school and youth symphonies that may arise.
LESSON STYLE
My students are encouraged to take an active part in setting goals for their learning so that they develop a sense of autonomy early on in their musical careers. I ask all students that are new to me if there is specific music they wish to be able to play, what their "wish list" is for their own personal improvement and what they think they do best/what they most enjoy about violin or music as a whole; I also place an emphasis on learning what I can about my students in non musical settings so I can best learn how to communicate with them so they feel comfortable and successful. Many students feel comfortable talking through concepts and techniques while others prefer detailed written instructions in a take home journal. I give all my students the opportunity to work on new and difficult things in the safe atmosphere of a lesson to ease potential frustration in their in home practicing. Mistakes are welcome and encouraged in my studio- there is no better way to learn than through experimentation, trial, error, and eventual success.

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.
