Studio Lessons, ages 3-103

Violin & Viola, Suzuki & Traditional

Pedagogy:

Having completed extensive Suzuki and Traditional training, my approach is to assess you or your child's overarching needs before beginning lessons.  This includes instruments, repertoire, theory, technique, materials, and creating a highly specific plan for how our lessons will proceed.  Lessons may incorporate a number of different materials and resources.

Process:

1.  Email and phone contact:
Before meeting to begin lessons, we will email and/or have a phone conversation regarding you or your child's violin/viola needs. 

2.  Interview-Lesson:  Our first lesson, where we are able to meet with no obligation (on either side) before enrolling in formal lessons. During this meeting, I will hear you or your child play, we will discuss materials, instrument sizes, and general information and get everything in place to begin lessons.

3.  Begin lessons:  Lessons are available through my studio in Willow Grove or through the Continuing Education program at Montgomery County Community College (MC3) in Blue Bell, PA.  Lessons at MC3 are available in 12-week semesters for college credit or without credit.   Here is a link for registration through MC3:
