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 20 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 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 !!!

Song of the Birds - from Vivaldi's "Spring"
