I provide violin and viola lessons for all ages. As a teacher, I am highly inspired by the Suzuki method, which I use as a jumping off point in tailoring my instructional style and materials to each individual student.
I like to incorporate games into my lessons in addition to teaching technique, songs, music reading and basic music theory. I teach music not only for its own sake but as a tool to develop problem-solving skills, emotional maturity, perseverance, and self-awareness.
The ages in my studio currently range from three-year-old children to adults in their forties. I started teaching in 2012 and have been teaching in Portland for almost two years.
