Private lessons are provided weekly for all ages and are offered in 30, 45, 60 minute intervals, up to 90 minutes.
Lessons are available on all levels of viola and violin, from beginner to advanced and college-level. Lessons are also available in the Suzuki style with parent and child together. Please feel free to contact me for more information!
I've been lucky to work with students at all ages and all levels. I have had many adult students who play very well just looking to continue their studies for fun, teens working towards regional auditions or futures in music, and even beginners from the age of three. I specialize in bringing students up to speed to be proficient in technique and develop their musicality. Recent students have earned places in the Stretto Youth Orchestra, Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra, and the Metropolitan Youth Symphony Orchestra.
My favorite part of teaching is making a difference in someone's life, whether it's just helping someone reach a goal or going the extra mile and helping to craft a complete, soulful human being. Music has a very special way of being able to teach us about much more than just rhythms and melodies, and I absolutely love finding that specifically in each individual student.
I offer lessons over Zoom for all levels. These lessons are just as successful as ones in-person, and are very useful during vacations, inclement weather, or global pandemics. I also offer video-feedback tutoring. Students can send videos of their practice for me to review and send back written comments, then I send videos of demonstrations and exercises back to practice!
