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!
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 !!!
