About Merrilee

If you are looking for a violin teacher who can teach you or your child to read notes proficiently while training the ear with patience and enthusiasm, look no further! The unique method I use makes strings mastery both easy and fun!

I am offering both private and group beginning and intermediate strings training for students ages 6 and up. This specialized training is offered out of my private home studio in located minutes from I10 and Loma Linda Elementary & Academy & University, and also I teach out of a private school office in Mentone. If you find the cost of private lessons to be beyond the budget, group beginner lessons offered in Mentone are offered at about a third of the cost.

I have been teaching violin for 5 years, starting in the Chattanooga, TN area in a private elementary school, have 13 years of formal violin training, played in symphonic orchestras throughout the nation, have performed on numerous occasions for special events and sacred concerts, and am currently involved in a local youth ensemble and upcoming summer music workshop in the area.

I love young people and find the greatest joy in musical mentoring! I commonly see social, intellectual, and even spiritual advancements along with the musical advancement of students who persevere in this beautiful artistic expression. Violin mastery is not just a skill to be learned for talent alone, but is a rewarding in and of itself. It's musical effects have been known to bring healing & hope to those who have special physical & mental challenges both young and old.

Whatever your personal goals, you can expect a caring diligence, high standards, and an aim to help you to become the accomplished strings player you have always dreamed of becoming.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bible Studies

I was born into a Protestant Christian pastor's home in 1963 and attended a private elementary and academy that taught Bible subjects including Bible prophecy, and I learned Bible in college. At the age of 30, my life was transformed when I became truly converted and learned how to study the Bible for myself. Since that time, I have married and had 2 children that I homeschool, and we have Bible classes every day. I have also taught health and Bible classes in India and have given personal Bible studies to people in their homes. Also I've been privileged to teach children's Bible classes at church over the years in the cradle roll, kindergarten, and primary levels. The private Bible study series that I have given to children and adults continues for up to a year or more and covers 28 different interesting and meaningful subjects that are Christ centered and focus on a relationship with God that gives freedom from worry, guilt, and fear. I've learned how (and can share how) to memorize whole chapters of the Bible. I really enjoy teaching Bible!

Violin

It has been my privilege to teach scores of students how to play classical and folk violin over the past 15 years. I began taking violin training Suzuki style at the age of 6 and continued to learn how to read music with a traditionally trained teacher from Hungary. I have played in orchestras around the country. Over the past 4 years I have led a group of musicians to share their music at nursing homes on a monthly basis and am actively composing sacred music scores for symphonic orchestras for churches. I have taught summer music workshops and am involved with teaching cello students this past year. I have a website called Angelic Violin Studio where you can learn more about me.
