Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: 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.

I would recommend Grace for anyone interested in learning the Violin, she is professional, punctual, great communicator, and great listener (Something I learned to appreciate). I watched her work with my child and from many experiences with other tutors in many areas I can say she stands out as a great teacher for kids, I can easily assume she would be great with adults too :)

Details: 6 - 9 years old • 0 - 2 yrs of formal training • Yes, the student can read music • What the teacher recommends • What the teacher recommends • Classical • Yes, the student has a violin • 30 minutes • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

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.

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.

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.
