Online Music Lessons

My online music lessons are a modern approach to traditional studio lessons. Unlike other teachers who have had to adapt to the online landscape due to COVID-19, I have been teaching online violin and viola lessons since 2012. From the convenience of your own home, flexible, personalized music lessons are here for you!

Using Skype, Zoom, or Google Meet, lessons include traditional and modern literature selections and modern apps for an engaging musical experience.

Overview of Instruction

Your goals are my goals. I am a Certified Music Educator and hold a Master of Music in Violin Performance. As such, I understand that there are many benefits to music education and that all students benefit from a personalized course of instruction. (See my TEDx Talk on the importance of music for everyone.) Whether you are looking for fun, engaging music experiences for your preschool child, are a high school student who wants to secure a conservatory audition, or an adult who wants to dust off their old instrument, I am dedicated to helping you experience success. My lessons are flexible and can be arranged around your schedule.
