Priscilla began her violin studies in New England Conservatory's Preparatory division at the age of 8. She has a BA in biology from Oberlin College, a BM in violin performance from Oberlin Conservatory and an MM in performance from SUNY Purchase. Her previous teachers include Ikuko Mizuno, Kyung Sun Lee, Laurie Smukler and David Bowlin. Currently she just finished her AD at the University of Memphis where she studied with Soh-Hyun Park Altino and plays with the Memphis symphony orchestra.
Priscilla has been playing in orchestras for 12 years and has been an avid chamber musician since the age of 12 giving her the opportunity to work with artists such as Mischa Amory, Andrew Jennings, Mike Kelley, Alex Klein, Elise Kuder, Julia Lichten, Catherina Meints, Movses Pogossian, Jennifer Ross, Peter Stumpf, Brooks Whitehouse, Calvin Wiersma and Carmit Zori.
Priscilla believes that classical music is not only a refined art but a beautiful gift from God that helps people learn to communicate, meditate, express and listen by doing so. She is passionate about communicating with people from all walks of life, and this love has brought her to play several outreach concerts in the Cleveland area. Priscilla loves music because of its ability to pull her towards things greater than herself, love, God, relationships and change.
I have been teaching private lessons fro over 12 years and have taught children from ages 4-adults of all levels. Upon arriving in Memphis, I began a music program at Caritas Village offering free violin lessons to the children in the neighborhood of Binghampton. This program is called A Music for the people and currently has 10 students
I use Suzuki books but I do not use the Suzuki method. I use my own teaching method which involves violin technique, rhythm study and music listening.
My relationships with my students are not very strict and formal, however I do expect that preparation and attendance be consistent.
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.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
