For the parent of a student in  Plano, Frisco, Allen, The Colony, McKinney, or Dallas, Texas who is aspiring to learn violin or viola. 

I teach students ages 4 through adult, and I love it!

Welcome!  My name is Barbara Stafford  

I am excited to be offering a motivating program strongly influenced by my training in the Suzuki Violin Method as well as my experience teaching traditional private violin & viola lessons through the past 17 years.  I am joyful to support families and students in their ambition to play violin.  And, I am reworking this site to provide helpful practice aids and tips for the violin students and parents I am currently teaching. 

Your child can develop the ability to play in a group and build the confidence to perform in concerts and solo recitals.  Join  my private lessons studio & participate in the small group classes, and performance events.  

You can learn more about me, my approach to teaching, scheduling information, and see a few student pictures through the "Violin Instruction" navigation buttons on the left.  To inquire further about violin or viola lessons  call me directly at 940-205-7309, or contact me by email

I used to spend my Saturdays traveling the metroplex performing wedding music. Now I am teaching a lot and performing a little. For now, I will leave some of my old work posted in some of the links-- pictures & music I have performed and recorded with my fellow musicians.

Hope you enjoy the Theme Song !!!
