Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Please note: I am teaching exclusively via video conferencing (Skype, Zoom, FaceTime, etc). My teaching style balances active listening, games and positive affirmations with constructive suggestions and critique. I was trained using the Suzuki method and use it and traditional approaches based on the needs of the student. I offer sliding scale for students with financial need. 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.

Violin Lessons (for children or teenagers)

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

Violin Lessons (for children or teenagers)

Grace has done a great job teaching my 12 year old daughter the basics of the violin. She has also developed a love of the instrument in her and inspires her to keep learning.

Grace is an outstanding music teacher. My daughter was so excited to try Violin, and Grace was the perfect teacher for her. Grace was extra patient with my daughter, who is blind in one eye, and went out of her way to make my daughter feel comfortable and empowered her to believe she could play violin. She adjusted her lessons accordingly and found perfect ways to communicate complex music and violin lessons to a 7 year old. I highly recommend Grace to anyone looking to expand their musical talents. She is a very talented musician, super smart and an wonderful teacher.

My wife and I have seen Grace in multiple Portland venues, with several musical lineups, and styles. Grace is always exceptional. Her passion just shines in any setting.

Violin Lessons (for adults)

Grace is adept at adjusting levels based on the needs of the student. I want to move quickly and she's accommodating my skill set and very flexible. Would highly recommend.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My lesson rate is sliding scale from $30-90/hr. I would suggest a rate of $60/hr to a median income family or individual in the Portland area. I offer a free half-hour trial lesson. After that payments are due monthly and in advance.

  • 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.
