I also play 5 string electric viola/violin.

I have extensive teaching experience (almost 30 years). I love teaching because I love to see my students succeed and achieve their goals also. My favorite thing to do is get my students on stage to play along with the band or orchestra. I am passionate about the violin and viola instruments and love to teach them to passionate students who are involved in the process of learning. I studied at Berklee which uses some of the best teachers for their music tutorials. I am also certified in the O'Connor Method for strings.

If you contact me you will see that learning the violin is difficult but I try to make the process fun and exciting using all the tools I can to help you achieve the goals you are searching to attain. Fun little games, contests, achievement awards and even fun little jokes to get your spirit in the right mood are all in my tool box.
Try a free consult and I will let you know how I bring the love of all music to my students by letting them choose their favorite music genre.
