Learn To Play

Violin | Viola | Cello


Violin Lessons

I do a variety of styles in music for the violin. I use whatever method (book or teaching style) is needed to teach what the student needs to learn.


Cello Lessons

I have been teaching cello privately for 10 years, my lessons depend on the age of the child. During these lessons you will learn proper positioning, plucking, bowing, and more.


Viola Lessons

Much like the violin, I also do a variety of styles in music for the viola using whatever method is needed to teach my students. We also deal with general Viola care techniques.


Theory Lessons

Music theory is the study of the practices and possibilities of music.  You will learn the theories of music, including musical elements and notations.

I am Here to Help

my Services


Violins play an important role to all types of music genres. From Western classical tradition to rock and roll – I will teach you how to master the violin.


The Viola is slightly larger than the violin and has a special sound quality which helps to fill in harmonies in an orchestra. Learn to play the viola like a pro.


Cellos are well known for their use in symphony orchestras, creating beautiful harmonies and often used in a variety of music styles around the world.

Music Theory

My primary job is to see you achieve your goals in relation to your instrument. I also encourage that you take every opportunity to perform.

About Me

Have you ever considered playing the violin, viola, or cello? It is as easy or hard as you make it. I find that if you want to do it, you can do it.  I teach anyone who can stay focused for 30 minutes on one subject. (Usually over the age of 5, but I have made exceptions)

 I take children, teens, and adults. My hours are flexible. 

I will move at the student’s pace. If they need more time, we will move slowly, if the student practices a lot, we move faster.   I can be as technical or untechnical as the student needs me to be. I can teach by ear, but I do stress the importance of learning how to read music. I am well versed in many styles of music and enjoy helping others to discover what they can do.

Online Music Lessons

Learning to play an instrument has never been easier, with my online lesson plans. No matter where you are, my online classes are hassle-free and designed for convenience. Much like classes in my studios, I try to keep the same routine because for some students it’s easier for them to focus if they know the lesson is going to move in a familiar way. It’s reassuring. After we become proficient in the basics, we move into whatever genre you would like to play, within reason. If you are in the school orchestra we will work towards you getting an A.

Open to calls for questions on course.
