Just tell you a little more about my self, I am a BYU student and plan on graduating next year. I have taken many classes at BYU that has given me a lot of experience on the violin. I have taken my own private lessons and have been in symphonies also. I have been playing the violin for 14 years as well. I also love to work out, cook, ski, spend time with my husband and play the organ, piano and mandolin. On my first visit, I just like for us to get to know each other. We will discuss how much you (or your child) have played and I may even hear a little bit from you. Also, we will just discuss what you would like to learn and maybe figure out what books you would like to learn out of. Then you can decide from there if you want to have me as a teacher. I try to make my lessons fun and meaningful for each of my students. I don't believe that there is a universal method of teaching the violin. I cater to the needs of each of my students. I have already been teaching for a couple of years now and I love it. I have taught students as young as 4 and as old as 27 so I welcome every age. Also, to give them something to look forward to, I have my students do two recitals each year, one around Christmas time and one towards the beginning of the summer. I also accompany my students' solos on the piano since the violin and piano sound beautiful together. All in all, I love teaching the violin and plan on doing it the rest of my life. I look forward to hearing from you.
