    We just met Grace and have only had one session with her, so I'm not sure what we can say at this point other than she seems to be talented and a good teacher. Only after some more sessions would I be able to give a more accurate review.

    Grace is patient and positive and a great teacher. My daughter has started practicing again! She said tonight "Grace is making violin fun again!"

About this pro

My teaching style balances games and positive affirmations with constructive suggestions and critique. I offer sliding scale for students with financial need and I also offer free (donation optional) group classes for my pre- orchestra students. I really like hearing my students perspectives on music and technique. I love how silly my young students and I can be together while learning. I also enjoy getting to know my students and watching them develop musically and personally.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      $25 per half-hour, $45 per hour
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I like to talk to students (and their parents, if applicable) about their goals and experience. I start new students off with basics such as bow-hold, posture, finger placement and tone production before introducing them to short, melodic pieces.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I studied viola at Oberlin Conservatory with Karen Ritscher and at the University of Idaho. I have twenty years of playing and performing experience.
