I am an avid enthusiast of teaching all ages, and have extensive experience teaching young children as well as adults. While studying at University of Maryland, I taught viola technique class as part of my graduate assistantship. I also volunteered with the program Artsi Riverdale as a violin tutor for underserved middle school students. I have also had the wonderful opportunity to teach abroad. In the summers of 2013 and 2014, I was able to partake in a collaboration between the non-profit organization MusAid and the Secretary of Culture of El Salvador’s El Sistema, teaching children from many regions of El Salvador and training viola teachers on viola pedagogy. I also have learned a lot from my experience teaching group classes. At Indiana University, I worked as a violin instructor for the Jacobs School of Music’s Fairview Elementary violin project, teaching group classes for 1st through 4th grade.

My teaching experience goes back as far as high school when I started volunteering to teach violin lessons to younger students. In my college years, I taught as part of Oberlin Conservatory's secondary lessons program in addition to teaching members of the Oberlin community of different ages and levels. Currently, I maintain private studios in multiple locations as an addition to my Musika students. My teaching experience as a violin instructor and educator has given me the chance to grow through my students' achievements and has transformed my life in a positive way. Because of this, I am always looking forward to helping new students.

My goal is to help students in making beautiful sound on a challenging string instrument. Depending on the student's age and level I apply personalized teaching approach. My youngest students show the best progress through the rhythmical musical activities; whereas for older students, along with individual training, I employ intensive exposure to ensemble atmosphere.

Hi! My name is Ashley and I am passionate about teaching music! Growing up, I was big into Musical Theatre, but I also had an older brother who really got me into rock music. I made my professional theatre debut in the 7th grade, and my career took off from there! I pursued a degree in Musical Theatre, and went on to "pound the pavement" in New York City, as they say, working in various facets and degrees of the musical theatre industry. Missing home and nature, I moved back to Massachusetts and took up teaching. I began teaching students in-home, prior to purchasing my baby grand piano which I currently use in my studio today! I went back to school to obtain my Masters of Music in Music Education, and continued to perform but this time in rock bands! I am currently in three rock bands, Rocket Queen (A tribute to Guns N' Roses), NOTB (a tribute to Iron Maiden), and NIB (a tribute to Black Sabbath). In my free time I enjoy performing showtunes for memory impaired patients at assisted living and nursing facilities.
