How I Teach

I teach individual lessons for violin, fiddle, and ukulele. I also have ongoing classes for intermediate ukulele. In teaching violin, I use primarily the Suzuki method. However, if a student needs a more traditional, reading-based approach, I will use that method instead. Beginning fiddle students will learn the first 4 or 5 pieces in Suzuki book 1, and then will begin learning a series of fiddle tunes progressing from easy to more complex. I teach ukulele primarily for accompanying singing. For this, I typically use children’s songs, folk-songs, and other easy tunes. If a student wants to play instrumental music on the ukulele, I will teach that style as well.
