Private Music Lessons

 For viola and violin

In-Person and Online Lessons

I teach in-person at the Community School of Music and Arts and other music studios in the Bay Area. 

I teach lessons online via Zoom through my independent studio. 

If you are interested in my personal studio, I offer a 30-minute trial lesson.

Lessons are scheduled weekly for 30, 45, or 60 minutes.

Teaching Philosophy

I have taught students at all levels and ages. Recognizing that each student is unique, I shape my teaching style to fit each one. My teaching philosophy is based on the Suzuki method, and you can learn more about it here

Goals of Private Lessons:

  • Learn music through repertoire
  • Focus on technique and musicality
  • Practice independence and perserverance
  • Have fun making music!

A Studio Community

  • Group Lessons: play music  with your peers!
  • Studio Classes: perform and receive feedback from peers!
  • Recitals: perform for our community, family, and friends!

 

Regular and Low-Income Rates

 

I believe that any dedicated student should have the opportunity to take individualized lessons. Contact me to find my lesson rates or discuss options for low-income students.

Leadership and Involvement

I served for two years as President and one year as Project Coordinator of the Idaho Music Teachers Association Boise State Chapter. We strived to develop and support independent music teachers, their students, and our community. I trail blazed a Subsidized Music Lesson Program which ran spring 2018 through fall 2019. Club officers attended the IMTA State Conference in 2017 and presented about our outreach program in 2019. We also received an Associated Students of Boise State Grant for 10 club members to attend the 2019 MTNA National Conference in Spokane. In 2021, I presented about the program at the Music Teachers National Association Conference online.
