Private and group lessons:
I offer violin, viola and piano lessons for all ages 4-99+. Whatever your preferred style of music, whether it’s classical, fiddle, jazz, movie theme songs, or gospel, we can play it!
My teaching is based on curriculum standards from the Royal Conservatory of Music, with emphasis on artistry and expression. I also encourage all students to develop their creative side through composition and improvisation.
These building blocks come together to form a well-rounded musician.
