I have had 35 yrs of teaching music, performing arts and as a professional violinist.
Gentle teaching - hands on. Never criticize - find the positives, then make suggestions for correcting. Learn each child's method of learning - i.e. tactile, audio, or visual. Not all children in my classrooms learned the same way, so I used all of these methods in my teaching.

BS from Ithaca College. Advanced study at the U. of Illinois, Florida State U. , and MS at Elmira College.
4 wonderful kids and a Cairn Terrier (also known as a Cairn Terror). I love to garden, write and rework old houses. I make my own cards and paint designs on old pieces of furniture. I have authored 11 books: All THE THINGS I MIGHT BE WHEN I GROW UP (Barnes and Noble), and A. C. ROBAT GOES TO CIRCUS SCHOOL. There is another book coming soon: MARY WARIN'S RATS: A TIME WARP ADVENTURE. And more in the offing. I grew up in Upstate NY where it's beautiful all the time. Several violin students get off the bus to come to my house for lessons every week.
