Overview:
I'm a "Teaching Violinist". Being a full-time string instructor in Evansville, Indiana is a joy; I get the pleasure of sharing my passion for music with the community in which I was raised. I teach instruments such as violin, viola, and cello to students of ALL ages! I've been playing violin for 24 years. I absolutely love my job! I also perform at both private and public events, providing musical entertainment for clients all over the Tri-state area. I provide musical performance for events such as: Weddings Funerals Rehearsal dinners Bridal lunches / showers Anniversary parties Corporate functions Fundraising events Cocktail parties, etc. I AM accepting new students, for both the violin and cello. I teach lessons both at my home OR my student's home. All ages and skill levels are welcome!
EXPERIENCE
I started playing the violin when I was 7 years old after my mother’s passing. It was my outlet, and has continued to be my creative outlet for expressing myself in a positive light. I worked very hard to get to this point in my career, and it’s not for the faint of heart. I spent many hours practicing my craft. I studied under the most difficult, yet fantastic instructors around the area. I’m blessed, but not from privilege. I’m blessed because I took a gift and allowed it to grow into a beautiful way of spreading joy to other people!
METHODS USED
Depending on the students level, I will focus on a certain range of scales to build strength. The first few lessons are spent learning about one another and giving/getting feedback on what the student liked or didn't like. This is very important to me, as I want to establish long-standing musicians! I also try to establish a vocal goal each month. We will then gradually increase that range while working on songs for a show, an upcoming gig, that big recital, or just for fun! I recommend working on songs that showcase your voice, and I of course will help choose songs I feel would highlight my students ability. As an instructor I want to be able to inspire my students to grow as much as possible!!!
LESSON STYLE
I want my students to have fun and enjoy themselves during our time together, but I also want to help them discover the courage and confidence within them that will help turn their lessons into lifetime expressions of beauty and freedom. I believe in encouraging students and praising them for good work, but I'm not afraid to point out things that need work. I expect them to practice and they will grow much faster if they work on their own. Part of my lesson times include teaching how to practice. However, I will always find a way to make the most out of an opportunity with a student. I'd rather spend time helping them learn how to express themselves with freedom and skill. When learning a specific task or skill, I use modeling in my teaching style. I will give examples the student examples they can imitate; however, I firmly believe that students should not just imitate but they should bring their own light to their music! I am still finding myself musically, but I have 24 years worth of knowledge and passion I can share to help others find their musical spirit and embrace it!

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
