Welcome to the Cathy M Dillon Music Studio. I teach private lessons for students of all ages on Viola and Violin. I am also offering music theory and chamber music coaching. I have a nice space full of music, a piano, assorted string instruments, large full length mirror, recording and playback equipment, and harp. We also have a guest bathroom and space for a couple of people to sit in the foyer.
My background is strongest as a classical player, but I can give you the basics for Fiddle, Mariachi, World music, Blues scale and Improv. All students are expected to learn basic music theory and develop familiarity with the piano keyboard. I also have 'in-house' harpist (adult daugter) who is accepting students for regular lessons, and she also offers introductory/exploratory one-half hour lesson on the harp at $25.
I am very flexible with each student's needs and goals. At your first lesson we should be able to establish some of your strengths and weaknesses and discuss the skills and repertoire that match your timeline and goals. After your first lesson we can discuss a regular weekly time. First 30 min trial lesson $25, and regular rates $65/80/95. Regular lessons are very important and scheduling should anticipate potential conflicts 3-4 months in advance. Payment is expected at the beginning of each month, or students may pay by the 'semester'. Rescheduled and makeup lesson time is limited. To allow everyone the same flexibility; generally no more than 1 makeup or alternate time per month.
I am also a performer and am happy to organize professional ensembles for your special event. I can provide string duos, trios and quartets.. at ceremonies, cocktails, receptions, etc. Rates are roughly $135 per person per hour (harp costs more).
