Overview:
I am a instructor that is conscious about the importance of good sound technique and instilling in the student the passion in music. I graduated from California State University with a Bachelors in Music performance, viola being my main instrument. I received a Masters degree in Church Music and pursued more studies in children's music pedagogy. I went through the Kodaly certification at Texas State University. I have been teaching children since 2000 on a formal basis.
EXPERIENCE
I have been teaching children since 2000 on a formal basis, first as an orchestra director for elementary and middle school students. Since 2006 I have been teachin at the elementary school and giving private lesson in violin and viola. My emphasis is teaching the basic techniques first by rote and introducing music reading at the correct development stage of the student.
METHODS USED
I start the student first by using The Mastery book by William Dick and Laurie Scott to learn the basic technique of the instrument. As soon as I think the student is ready I start teaching simple songs by rote. Eventually I introduce to the student to String Explorer to teach music reading and emphasize the techniques already explored in the Mastery Book and learn by rote.
LESSON STYLE
I strongly encourage the student and parent to be methodic and consciensious about learning the basic technique for the instrument before he/she starts to play differnt repertoire. Nevertheless I try to introduce simple tunes and songs to encourage the student to progress rapidly and get a love for the instrument.

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.
