About the teacher

Years of experience
5 – 10 years
Education relevant to teaching music
I have both a highschool and college education. My college degree is a B.A. in mathematics. I began violin lessons in my mid teen years and continued lessons throughout my college years. I also took 3-4 years of violin lessons, at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, after college.
Teaching philosophy and approach to teaching
My key focus is relaxation and fun. That is to say, I want students to feel relaxed and have fun playing their instruments. Also, I want students to become aware of the playing fundamentals i.e. posture, bowing, fingering, etc. that promote beautiful sounds from their instruments.
I am active in playing the violin and string bass playing for church services, playing with other musicians at various venues, etc..
