TEACHING EXPERIENCE

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

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.
