Teaching & Other Details
I primarily teach violin using the RCM method (with or without exams), but I borrow heavily from the Suzuki method when teaching children seven and under. I also borrow from a method called "String Explorer" for all ages beginners. When students are interested I love incorporating improvisation, songwriting, and fiddle styles into my violin teaching. I have only ever taught song writing in a group setting, but I would love to explore the process one on one with interested students.
Mondays and Thursday all day (with notice). Wednesdays and Fridays before 3pm.
