I love to help each student reach their own individual creative potential.  I give them a good foundation in technique, form, ear traning, and artistic expression, but encourage them to find a piece of music or a musical style that they enjoy to pursue and make sure to save time in each lesson to work on that material.  In terms of developing technique and musical skills, I am very detail-oriented and have clear lesson plans for each class, which I outline in each student's individual lesson notebook.

I strongly believe having a fun and interactive lesson with a student is the key to learning music.  I am a very patient and open-minded educator because I understand that it can be a daunting task to learn something if the student doesn't enjoy it.  For example, some of my older beginner studnets feel silly when I ask them to learn Twinkle Twinkle, so I ask them for their favorite song, and I transcribe the tune for them to practice.  For some students, motivation comes from having a percivable goal, in which I encourage the students to apply for auditions, such as N.Y.S.S.M.A.  Let me know what your needs are, and I am happy to accomodate my style of teaching depending on your personality and progress.  I am here not just to teach, but also to inspire and have fun with music.

I have been a classical concert violinist performing mostly in the Northeastern area for the past few years. I have more experience performing than teaching, but am passionate about music and have been interested in communciating the real meaning behind the composer's intentions in both my performances and in my conversations with the audience. I always explain my programs to audience members during the concert, and over the years, I have come to realize the importance of a musical education in all people's lives, whether or not they decide to take up music as their vocation. As a musician, my desire is to communicate the composer's intentions, and my desire as a teacher is to enable the student to find the joy and meaning of the music themselves.

I have been teaching private music lessons for more than 30 years at my home and at my student's homes.  After I received my Masters degree I obtained my teaching certificate in vocal and instrumental music for grades K - 12.  I taught vocal music for the Jersey City board of Education and later I taught strings for the  Kearny Board of Education.  I prepared students for auditions and recitals always encouraging them to practice and learn music theory and music history.  I like my students to play solos and in groups and to enjoy playing and sharing their music and for them to feel good about their accomplishments.

I tailor my lesson plans specifically towards what each student wants and needs. Typically with very young children I will start with larger scale motions as it is difficult for them to place their tiny fingers on the instrument and coordinate. At that point my emphasis is on them having fun and avoiding any bad habits. I generally go through the motions with them so that they feel more confident. I encourage each student/parent to keep a journal of the lessons in order to record the lesson, track their achievements as well as assignments. I welcome anyone who prefers to record electronically. *** I do ask that parents attend the lessons with the children (especially young children). For shy, very busy, or far away individuals I will happily teach ONLINE! :)

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.
