Music communicates what words cannot.  My teaching philosophy is based on an open dialogue, creating a comfortable, fun, and curious learning environment. “Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.”  -Victor Hugo. I teach practical violin lessons in cooperation with music appreciation and listening, music theory, and music history. Students will quickly apprehend the joy of expressing and speaking through the violin. This universal language will become a lifelong friend.

Since 2013, I've adapted a student-oriented curriculum blending the principles of Suzuki, Kodaly, and Orff.

The break down for each instrument I teach:  For beginning children violin/viola students, I combine Mimi Zweig's IU String Academy method with Suzuki School training. However, I add in my own emphasis on ten minutes set aside in every lesson for learning to read notes, and for theory and ear training (Yes, even at 6 years old! We work on hearing intervals and naming them).  For beginning children piano students I use Dozen a Day, Bastien, Suzuki, and my own method. Children will learn scales right away from an early age, but will also play fun songs. If my students are young, I incorporate educational games into the lesson specifically for keeping focus. For adult students or teenagers, I tailor more to their needs and individual personalities and requests. This often includes more complex pieces, some Scottish fiddling, and lots of etudes for technique building!

For violin teaching, I am a staunch Suzuki supporter. I believe the method can truly bring out a great musician in every child if it's taught properly. I teach note reading very early on, but ear training is key to sensitive musicianship. I also supplement with pieces outside the Suzuki curriculum, encouraging my students to choose pieces that catch their interest. For piano, I have experience with all of the popular methods -- Faber, Alfred, Bastien, etc. It's important to me that students recognize notes and intervals from a very early level, and I find this is best taught through songs and pieces the student already recognizes. Although most of the methods provide familiar tunes, I find I need to supplement; to do this, I encourage students to find familiar pieces, within their level, that they enjoy. Many times that includes Top 40 tunes, but some choose classical or folk tunes.

I love to inspire my students and help bring more music into their lives. I achieve this by specifically tailoring my teaching to the needs and interests of each student. I strongly believe that students learn better when they are inspired rather than intimidated; that's why I regularly integrate positive reinforcement into each lesson, and then set realistic, fun goals that students can work towards with excitement. Music lessons should be fun, regardless of whether you're a elementary school beginner or a high school student auditioning for college.

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.
