Your First Lesson The first lesson is a 30-minute trial lesson, and is not a guarantee of enrollment. The goal of it for me is to understand your background, your level, and your learning style, and to make sure we are a good fit. If you have taken lessons before, please bring your instrument and whatever materials you worked on with your previous teacher. Please be prepared to play something for me if you have past experience playing.
If you are a beginner, all I ask is that you bring a working instrument (along with a bow and shoulder rest). I can provide recommendations on where to find/rent an instrument, as well as which accessories you need for it; please let me know in advance and I will send you this information.
Expectations My thorough teaching philosophy can be found on my About page, and the full studio handbook and guidelines can be found below.
