- Violin/Viola Lessons - I teach violin and viola lessons of all ages and skill levels. All violin/viola students will learn healthy, proper technique, and challenging solo music. I also encourage students to bring in other music they need help with (school orchestra music, ensemble music, etc.) at any time. Students are also welcome to pursue other styles/areas outside of classical music (rock, pop, folk, improvisation, etc.) in their lessons if they are interested in doing so!

- Beginning Cello Lessons - I teach beginning cello lessons to students of all ages. All cello students will learn healthy, proper technique, as well as solo music in beginning method books. I also encourage students to bring in any other music they need help with (school orchestra music, ensemble music, etc.) at any time. Students are also welcome to pursue other styles/areas outside of classical music (rock, pop, folk, improvisation, etc.) in their lessons if they are interested in doing so!

- Improvisation for Classical Musicians - Are you a classically trained musician who feels paralyzed at the thought of making up music on the spot? Do you feel lost when you are called on to improvise at a gig or at school? Whether you're a student or a professional, it can often be difficult to tap into the mindset and skills needed for improvisation. I provide lessons that guide the classically trained musician into the creative, fun, and rewarding world of improvisation through invaluable exercises and methods. I promise I am very empathetic and encouraging!
