I have considerable experience teaching children of all ages the violin and the piano. I focus a lot on planning my lessons carefully so that each of my students are always engaged and are always learning, but more importantly I try to make my lessons an enjoyable experience so that my students like playing their instruments. I also encourage creativity and input from my students so that they feel they are in control of their work in our lessons. I am very sensitive to the concerns of students and parents and I try to develop an individual approach for each of my students in order to develop their abilities.

I am open to working with students with special needs. I have some experience working with special needs students, but not much. I did work with one violin student who was autistic. I also worked in a group home for autistic adults when I was in high school, but this wasn't in a musical capacity.
