Seattle Area : Eastside : Seattle / East Side I teach all ages and levels of cellists. I teach in my studio in Seattle and also travel to homes on the East Side once a week.
Eastside : Having taught privately for 20 plus years, I find successful learning for violin includes correct bowing techniques combined with motivation to play a piece of music that the learner at some point wants to perform in public whether itís for family members, friends or large audience. To achieve this, exercise type books like etudes, scales, bowing books, advanced position will be utilized. Perhaps a bit old fashioned, but it works. I do try to make it enjoyable in the process, because if the element of enjoyment is lacking, learners of all ages lose interest. I am no Suzuki teacher, but do believe in the mother tongue approach to a point, as modeling is a very strong form of learning. For the beginner working on intonation, I play along quite frequently. I have a masters in Education so I do understand the process of learning and how each individual is unique, and customize my teaching to match the needs of each student to the best of my abilities. I have taught learners ages 12-90 and all levels. My own expertise in performing is more private. However, as a youth growing up in Seattle, I played in Seattle youth symphony orchestra for many years, so I also understand children wanting to compete and being part of some of the great orchestras in the area.
