Teaching

I offer violin and viola lessons to students of all ages at my studio in Bernal Heights, San Francisco. Using a curriculum of folk songs, fiddle tunes, and baroque music for beginners to a more advanced classical repertoire for intermediate and advanced students, I give each student a solid foundation on the violin or viola. My students are able to read music and play by ear and take the violin in whatever direction they choose later on. Using a combination of scales, exercises, rhythm games, and repertoire, I teach my students how to be comfortable and facile on their instruments and also well-rounded musicians. Each student is unique and I vary my teaching approach based on the individual student's learning style. Please contact me for more information.
