Our music lesson students will have the opportunity to take lessons from the comfort of their own home or in one of the teachers studios. Careful attention is placed on each student to ensure a custom lesson plan. Our music teachers understand that every student has different needs and abilities and therefore the lessons will be planned with that knowledge in mind.
lessons are available in the following areas:
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Violin, Viola, Bass Guitar, Harmonica, Mandolin, Electric Violin, Fiddle, Double Bass
I use a very concise methodology in my instruction. I evaluate the students level, from there I make a step by step guide (of selected piece and etudes) to show the student their progress into the next level. I also encorperate ideas in theory, history, and ear training. Also if the student has yet to learn how to read musical notation. that will be taught along side with regular instrumental lessons.
I have been playing the violin for 14 years. I continued to gain experience by earning four consecutive First Place U.I.L. Solo Awards in high school, earning All-District and All-Region Orchestra honors, and performing in advanced orchestra. I've had the honor of performing in the All-Region Orchestra with Daniel Heifetz, renowned violinist. I was also self-inspired to create my own high school chamber ensemble with coordinated musical supervision from Misha Galagonov, former SMU graduate and current TCU professor, which was funded by student fundraisers. I have furthermore participated and performed in the Fort Worth Youth Orchestra Program for five years. I've also had the honor of performing through the Sister Cities International Program in Bled, Slovenia during their 1,000th Year Anniversary in front of a crowd of thousands. I've furthered my music skills by attending Music in the Mountains at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado for a summer which is a summer orchestra program where international instrumentalists teach musical techniques. Cara performed in the Texas Woman’s University Chamber Ensemble for four years. She has also performed at special occasions, such as the Asian New Year Event at Texas Woman’s University, holiday performances, memorial services, funerals, etc. Cara was a Denton Bell Band volunteer where she assisted and conducted individuals with disabilities on hand bells. She has also had former music therapy clinical experience in Denton ISD, Lewisville ISD, and Denton Senior Center with individuals with disabilities and older adults. She also has music therapy experience in hospice.

I really enjoy watching my students grow in skill and passion for their instrument. I believe in letting my students know how much they are improving, and emphasizing their growth each week. I am inspired by my students and I believe that my students are inspired by me!
For small children and adults alike, I like to start with the Suzuki Method. I utuilize candy, stickers, colorful highlighters, etc. to motivate my students. After several Suzuki songs have been mastered, we can move on to more fun music or alternative styles--whatever the student wants to learn! While I am familiar with the more classical route--solo repertoire, concertos, etudes, scale studies-- if you are not interested in classical music, I have many books containing fiddle and jazz tunes! I also love doing student-teacher duets as well & I want my students to have opportunities to perform in front of an audience.
Instruments: Violin, Viola
Teaching Methods: For very young students I used Suzuki Method, as I believe it is proven to be the best for young students. For older students I used various different methods. I work on an individal basis, using whatever method I think will be most appropriate for each individual student. I do usually two recitales per year. I encourage my students to participate in them, but I let them choose.
Teaching Styles: The most impotant thing for me as a teacher is to help my students see the beauty of music, and to help them find their passion and love for what they do. The rest will follow. They will practice if they love what they do. I teach in an encouraging and positive atmosphere. Knowing that our fears and insecutities are the only things stopping us from succeeding, I teach my students with the mindset that there are not things too difficult to achive and the limitations are the only ones we put on ourselves.

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.Ok
