About Ava

As a cum laude graduate of Truman State University in 2015, I decided to continue my education and extend my love of teaching to Boulder, where I recently finished my Master of Music degree and will be continuing on to pursue my Doctor of Musical Arts degree in the fall. I've been teaching privately since I was in high school and have loved every second of it!

I enjoy passing on my love of music to my students. In each lesson, I make sure that my students are challenged while still feeling a sense of accomplishment by the end of the lesson. I love seeing each and every student excel at what they do.

While my primary instrument is violin, I have been playing viola since my sophomore year of college and have performance and teaching experience with it. I specialize in these two instruments, but also emphasize general note reading skills, ear training, and above all, practicing skills.

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.

Ear Training

Completed Bachelor of Music & Master of Music degrees (with anticipated Doctorate in Music) with high grades in both aural skills and music theory. Graduated cum laude and awarded "Outstanding Undergraduate in Music: Performance" in 2015. Overall Master of Music GPA of 3.8.

General Music

I hold a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance ('15) from Truman State University and am currently pursuing my Master of Music in Violin Performance ('17) at the University of Colorado-Boulder. I graduated Cum Laude from Truman State University and was awarded Outstanding Student in Music: Performance of the 2015 graduating class. I have completed one year of Master's level coursework and completed all upper & lower level music courses in my Bachelor's with high grades.

Music History

I hold a Bachelor of Music ('15, Cum Laude) from Truman State University, Master of Music from University of Colorado Boulder ('17), and will be beginning my Doctorate of Musical Arts at University of Colorado Boulder this fall. Both of my previous degrees were completed with high grades in music analysis, music history, and aural skills. While at Truman State University, I was named Outstanding Undergraduate Music Student and consistently made the President's and Dean's Lists.

Music Theory

Graduated with honors from Truman State University with a BME ('15). High scores in both theory and aural skills classes.

Violin

I hold a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance ('15) from Truman State University, a Master of Music in Violin Performance ('17) from University of Colorado-Boulder, and will be beginning my Doctorate of Music in Violin Performance this fall. I have been teaching for almost 7 years, with students ranging from as young as 4 years old to 22 years old, and a wide range of skill levels (beginner to advanced). A number of my older intermediate and advanced students have been accepted into local youth orchestras, and younger beginner students can expect a Suzuki-based lesson experience.

My 9 year old says, "She's awesome. She will help you if you are stuck." I say that Ava is always on time and very accommodating. We have had to change our schedule a few times, but we have always found a way to make lesson time work. Thank you!
