I have been teaching public school orchestra for 10 years. I love teaching and motivating students to fulfill their potential. I am a trained suzuki violin and viola teacher and maintained a private studio for 8 years until I became more involved with orchestra at school.
My teaching style is heavily influenced by the Suzuki method, but I am traditionally trained so I use many traditional techniques as well. I keep a climate of respect in my class and work to keep every student busy and working at all times.

I have 5 kids - 3 of them actively practicing instruments of their own (the last 2 are not old enough to start.) I love to bake and eat treats.
