Violin and Viola Lessons
About this pro
I earned a Bachelor of Music degree from Oberlin Conservatory and a Master of Music degree from the University of Maryland. I have been teaching in the DMV area since 2016 and have worked with children and adult students on both violin and viola. I teach 30, 45, or 60-minute lessons. In my teaching, I use a variety of method books and also create exercises to help the student's technique and musicianship. I began playing viola in a public after-school program around age 10, and later began private lessons at 14. Feel free to contact me for more information! I enjoy sharing my love of music with students by helping them reach their goals and make progress on their instrument. I love performing different types of music for all who want to listen!

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Typically during the first lesson with a new student, I listen to them play and assess their current musical level and develop a plan to work with technical aspects as well as music making. I listen to what their goals are for lessons and decide how I can help them along that process.
