About Kyrie


Bio

Hello! My name is Kyrie (bet it's not pronounced the way you think!), and I've been teaching music to students of all ages for 10 years. Currently, I spend much of my time helping students adjust to virtual learning during these crazy COVID times, but I'm also here to help you with anything you need as well!

Hello! My name is Kyrie (bet it's not pronounced the way you think!), and I've been teaching music to students of all ages for 10 years. Currently, I spend much of my time helping students adjust to virtual learning during these crazy COVID times, but I'm also here to help you with anything you need as well!

It's so vital that students realize their capacity and ability to achieve something they thought they wouldn't be able to do. Every time a student accomplishes something, they believe in themselves a little more, and they then gain the confidence to push themselves forward and try new things. Developing this confidence is incredibly important, particularly at younger ages, and it's my goal to help every student I teach get to that point!

A few fun facts about me: My graduate degree program was based in Spain, so I ended up learning a good bit of Spanish while I was abroad! I can also speak French, and I've tutored students in both!

I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Music Composition and a Master's degree in Music Business, but I've been playing piano for nearly twenty years and playing violin for thirteen. In addition to tutoring or teaching privately, I've also tutored and taught students in both small group and classroom settings.

There's a prevalent, though incorrect assumption that all musicians have to begin as child prodigies, or need to start learning music before a certain age to succeed. I've taught beginning students as young as 6 and as old as 65! As with many things, it's never too late to start learning, and there's room for everyone in the music world!

Composition (Music)

I began composing music shortly after learning how to play the piano, around the age of five or six. Though I focused primarily on violin in middle school, in high school my interests became split between violin, orchestrating/arranging music, and music composition, so much so that I eventually chose composition as my major. While studying at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, I was instructed in the composition of multiple genres of music, and now myself have a wide-ranging portfolio of different musical styles.

Algebra 1

For approximately 9 years, I've tutored a range of students in algebra. I've worked on fundamentals with elementary school students who were preparing for middle school as well as college-aged students reviewing algebraic concepts they had forgotten from high school. In my most recent primary occupation I tutored almost exclusively middle-schoolers who often found algebra to be their most difficult subject to understand, but now, many of them say it's their favorite class!

I don't dare to say I'm an expert on piano as it is not my primary focus, but I have a pretty solid grasp of the basics of playing and performance. Most of my experience has been teaching beginners and those looking to brush up their basic skills/technique.

Violin

Violin replaced piano as my primary instrument at the age of 10. From the age of 13 on, I've been teaching students of all ages, mainly beginner and intermediate. While in school for my bachelor's, I taught both violin and piano at a local music academy. Currently, I am doing in-person tutoring sessions with a violin student whose Orchestra class was moved online due to COVID-19.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Kyrie made the whole virtual experience of violin lessons seamless. It was a great experience and we look forward to our next lessons. She was kind knowledgeable and great with my son. He was very nervous and anxious about virtual lessons but Kyrie was easy-going and made the experience memorable.

Knowledgeable and sweet tutor

She showed me that it is possible to live my dream of becoming a violin player. She was very sweet and wonderful to work with. I look forward to continuing our lessons.

Amazing Teacher!!!!

Kyrie is a amazing teacher. My 10 year old daughter decided that she wanted to learn how to play the violin and I was hoping to find someone that was patient with kids. Kyrie was patient and kind. My daughter left her first session with knowledge she didn’t know about the violin. She learned a lot just in the first session. Thank You Kyrie for making my daughter feel comfortable in class, all of her nervousness went away because of the instructors kindness and patience.

Amazing and helpful tutor

Kyrie is so patient and helpful she is really helping my playing sound like actual music and not a dissonant combination of notes. Kyrie has definitely made me a better musician

Alex, 4 lessons with Kyrie

Awesome energy

My daughter is raving about her experience. So lucky to have this teacher. She is highly recommended. She is very knowledgeable and confident. She is on time and very professional

Kj, 7 lessons with Kyrie

Easy to work

Kyrie was very flexible with the time for lessons and organized. This makes even shorter lessons productive. She made it easy to pick up the violin again after 2 years off! We are working on the basics and she is patient.

Becky, 9 lessons with Kyrie

Teaching style

Kyrie was personable, approachable and knowledgeable. Kyrie was patient, supportive and communicated timely. Her lessons have been instrumental in helping a beginner learner develop an interest and passion for the violin.

Patient and Fun Tutor

Kyrie has done a great job with my 7 year old. We started from scratch on piano, and she has lots of good tips and tricks that stick easily and help my daughter remember. We've only done a few lessons so far, and my daughter has already learned a lot.

Sylvia, 2 lessons with Kyrie

Very good!

Had my first violin lesson with Kyrie. She is very nice, knowledgeable and patient, which I need since I am very much a beginner. We covered some basics and it was helpful; off to a good start!
