Lessons

Welcome to the studio! I am available for lessons in person or online via Zoom, Skype and FaceTime. I teach both traditional and Suzuki method violin, accepting students age 5 and up. Contact me for information on lesson format, learning to play, advancing your current skills on the violin, or just to ask a few questions about an old violin you found in the attic. Get to know me as a teacher and check out a few tips from my Intro to the Violin series on tuning the instrument.

I am a registered Suzuki teacher, member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas and the Middle Tennessee Suzuki Association. If you are interested in the Suzuki method, I highly recommend visiting both sites for more information and resources for parents and children.
