Introduction: I am an enthusiastic music lover and violinist since age 6. For nearly half of my life I have been teaching and sharing the gift of music with others. I am also able to offer a wide range of music from classical to traditional, specializing in Irish. Overall I take care to find what inspires my students to learn and love violin. Due to COVID-19 I have moved all my in studio lessons to online.

Darcy has been teaching violin to my daughter, who is in kindergarten. My daughter LOVES her lessons with Darcy, who has a wonderfully fun and warm demeanor that immediately puts kids at ease. She makes even the basic stuff super fun for kids, but also provides an appropriate amount of increasing challenge as time goes on. She clearly knows her stuff when it comes to the technical side of playing the violin, and I appreciate the solid foundation she is giving my daughter in her violin technique. We love our lessons with Darcy, and would highly recommend her!

As an adult with some musical background before starting with the violin, I find Darcy's lessons extremely helpful to build confidence with this instrument. She managed to identify the areas where I needed to focus my practice since day one, and I have seen a constant improvement on my playing every week. Darcy is also a world-class Irish fiddle player, and I often assist (and try to play along) her Irish music sessions around the Bay Area for some extra practice.

Darcey is a great violin teacher. My kiddo adores her and looks forward to her lessons every week. Darcey is pleasant and easy to deal with. She has been considerate and flexible with our crazy life.

She's a tremendously patient and kind teacher. Violin is a tricky instrument, and it can be frustrating, especially for kids, to pick up. She's always cheerful, listens to students' concerns, spots problems and gently corrects them, and makes room to play games and be silly, all while teaching good technique. We've had a wonderful experience learning from her.

Darcy brings an extensive background in traditional Irish fiddling and classical violin training together thoughtfully. This includes great modeling for traditional playing - which is based in a oral tradition. She responds to the specific needs of her students with flexibility and an ever-ready "bag of tricks" for technique and musical resources.
