TeachingPhilosophy With every student, my goal is to achieve technical and musical excellence while maintaining a positive learning environment. I believe that challenges and high expectations can be met through hard work, and that there is no universal method that works for everyone. Therefore, I approach each student individually, keeping in mind their unique learning style. I strive to make lessons an environment for growing, challenging oneself, and developing a sense of discipline.
The full studio handbook can be found below.
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. 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.
