I try to cater to the each student's particular needs. For beginning students that are children I typically start with the Essential Elements Strings Book 1 in combination with Suzuki first book. As every student progresses at a different pace, I adjust my teaching curriculum accordingly. Having that in mind, I decide on the next step, usually some solo repertoire, as well as some more etudes and scales.  For adults, I tend to go with what they are particularly interested in, as well as incorporating learning basic music reading and playing skills.

For beginnig students who are children I typically start with a lesson book. As soon as they are comfortable on their instruments, I introduce the pieces for their first performance. For older students I follow their interests to have them play the songs that they enjoy.   I also specialize in working with young children and on Suzuki Method teaching for piano, violin, viola and cello.

With children, I generally work on two goals per lesson. At about 10 or 11, I will work on both technique and one work. I generally start with Hal Leonard's Essential Elements for violin, and simple songs chosen between teacher and student for voice.

Instruments:

I have been learning the violin since the age of 5 solely based on my own interest. I was greatful for my parents who gave me the best teacher there could ever be and fueled my interest in classical music. I like to think that I could also be that great teacher to my students. I have experience in teaching violin for over 9 years. I have started out volunteering as a violin instructor within my church and ventured into teaching friends and their family members as I gained more experience and knowledge. As I have learned, the importance of learning to play a musical instrument is of vast importance. It teaches you patience, sensitivity and deep appreciation for music. If my students are enrolled in a music class, orchestra or band at school, I truly enjoy helping them perfect their skills and succeed.

I have a customized approach to instruction that keeps pace with the student's skill leve and ability. Goal setting is an important acitivity that I use to sustain interest and encouragement. For example, we may decide together that we will attempt to master a particular inspring piece of music by a specific date. Naturally, the date will be reset depending upon the student's progress.
