About Clarke

I began playing the violin at age 4 in the Washington DC area and have performed at many venues around the DC area and overseas in China in Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu and Xi'an. Currently I am a freelance violin and music theory tutor as well as a violin teacher at a charter school in the DC area. My teaching method is based around curiosity. I teach students based on their questions, but in a guided manner. I present a topic and after it is successfully picked up by the students, I present problems that cause them to ask questions leading to the next topic of discussion. I teach most of my younger students (from 1st-5th grade) up to at least a sophomore/junior year in high school worth of theory as long as the concepts are being successfully grasped.

I have been playing the violin since I was 4 years old and moved on from high school to study music history/theory (minor in violin performance) at Howard University. I am proficient in sight signing, music theory, harmony, counterpoint, analysis as well as violin teaching. I was the concert mistress in the Howard University Orchestra for 2 of the 3 years of my participation and I have also performed at many venues including the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, the Meridian House, various embassies, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and with the Washington Ballet.

I absolutely LOVE teaching violin and music theory to anyone who is willing to learn. The more the merrier. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me.
