Hello! I am very excited to start your musical journey and help you succeed at learning the violin, music theory, sight singing, ear training and some music history too! As a violinist, music history buff and enthusiast for over 10 years, I am truly passionate about music including the stories behind it.

Violin Students will learn everything from the basics to advanced techniques including positions, shifting, bowing and styles along with the theory and rich history that helped shaped the pieces they are studying! Suzuki method available on request!

Ear training exercises solidify student's understanding of each concept and enhance their ability to hear, before they sing. To solidify rhythmic syllables and accuracy I incorporate clapping and drumming exercises so student's are able to correctly feel the correct pulses before adding pitch. This increases the accuracy of Sight Singing while exercising.

If you are interested in only one specific subject that is fine too! I travel to your home on YOUR schedule!

A little about me: I studied at Florida Atlantic University and graduated cum laude with a B.A. in Commercial Music with an emphasis in Business and primary instrument of Violin. I performed with the Florida Atlantic University symphony for two years the Principal of Second Violin and one year as the Assistant Concert-Master. I have performed as a solo and chamber instrumentalist in South Florida for wedding and private events, was a clinician for the Sawgrass Springs Middle School Orchestra and performed in various venues throughout Florida. I can teach both the Suzuki method or traditional pedagogy, depending on the student/parent's choice. I also offer small group lessons for those who have siblings who want to join OR a mommy and me/daddy and me class, so the parents can join their children on their musical journey!

Past performance videos/online demonstration available on request! Please message me for details!

Microsoft Windows

I am familiar with all Microsoft Windows Software. I know advanced tips and techniques in word, excel, outlook and powerpoint that can help enhance every day usage to complex usage. From building multi function spreadsheets to multi media powerpoint presentations- I am fully capable of slowly explaining terms and creating templates for the user. I have all the programs on my computer and work side by side with student to see how they would go about solving the problem they are running into, and then showing them where the function is located to help.

Ear Training,

Ear Training

I excelled in sight singing and ear training during my undergraduate studies at Florida Atlantic University. I was a tutor to 7 students in the program during the 3rd and 4th levels of the course. I am confident I can teach students ear training through various methods- including while learning and playing an instrument or simply using voice and piano. I have advanced knowledge of theory and can educate students on practice techniques they can utilize along with exercises both written and oral to help them comprehend theory and ear training.
Sight Singing,

Sight Singing

I have proficient knowledge in sight-singing from training through my undergraduate. I tested out of the 1000 and 2000 level of this course in college and I was a tutor for students in all levels 1000-4000. My tutoring methods are based on Progressive Sight Singing by Carol Krueger, but students can work from their selected exercise book if they would like. I am able to teach students in moveable Do and immovable Do depending on their/ or their school's preference. I include ear training exercises within the lesson to solidify student's understanding of each concept and enhance their ability to hear, before they sing. To solidify rhythmic syllables and accuracy I incorporate clapping and drumming exercises so student's are able to correctly feel the correct pulses before adding pitch. This increases the accuracy of sight singing while exercising.
Violin

Violin

I have studied violin for over 13 years. I graduated with honors from Florida Atlantic University with a B.A. in Commercial Music and my primary instrument as Violin. I am familiar with the Suzuki method as well as the Carl Flesch Scale system. I have taught private lessons before (6-14 years old) and have also worked as a clinician at Sawgrass Springs Middle School in Coral Springs, Fl with the 6,7 and 8th orchestras last year. I am comfortable teaching basic to advanced techniques on violin and am committed to the students feeling confident and comfortable while learning!
