If your child is within ages 5--8

please read about required parental involvement

Currently, I require masks be worn (over mouth and nose) to protect the health and safety of all students, parents, and guests in my studio.  For parents who wish to study online -- either because they want to better avoid the risk of illness -- or because they don't want to wear a mask -- or for any other reason --  I also offer lessons online.   

Current Openings:  

None at this time. 

Please contact me if you are interested to be on my waitlist. 

For the parent of a student residing in or near Plano, TX  who is aspiring to learn violin or viola. 

I teach students ages 5 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 21 years.  I am joyful to support families and students in their ambition to play violin. 

Your child can develop the ability to play violin, and grow in their confidence to perform in concert and solo recitals!

I hope this website will answer many questions you may have!

You can learn more about me, my approach to teaching, and scheduling & tuition information through the "Violin Instruction" navigation buttons on the left.  To inquire further about violin or viola lessons openings in my studio please contact me by email

I used to spend my Saturdays traveling the metroplex performing wedding music. Now I am teaching a lot and performing only in support of my student's group and solo recitals. 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 !!!
