My desire to teach the violin comes from my very real experience of a life spent with music. Since I became a student myself at the age of 4, I have been learning not just about the violin, but what it means to be a musician. I bring 25 years of my own struggles, accomplishments and understanding to you so that you can grow as a vioinist and a musician!

Instruments:

I encourage my students to find their highest potential, starting students as early as 3 years old. I like to see my students making good progress through daily practice and by leading them gradually to more and more advanced stages. One of my goals is to teach them not to compare themselves with other students but to do their own personal best. I like to teach all ages. I teach all levels of violin, beginner through intermediate in viola, and beginning level in cello, guitar and ukulele. I want to see that my students make progress in encouraging atmosphere both in technical and musical areas.

My teaching experience stems from 5 years ago, where I would share whatever knowledge of music i could with those around me. In those five years I have made it my duty to make myself a resource to all musicians around me. I believe that consistent practice, and lessons is the key to success with music. More importantly I in making music a healthy outlet for emotion, and self expression.

Jazz Scales: The Blues Scale

...scale learned after the major and minor scales. I remember being introduced to the blues scale in jazz band when I was a sixth grader. In some respects, teaching the this scale as the first “jazz scale” makes sense. It’s a one-size-fits-all scale. You can use one single scale over the whole blues progression.
