    About MeContact Me
    Introduction
    My name is Blythe Foreman, and I offer private violin and viola lessons in the Carlisle area. I teach mostly from the Suzuki method, but will teach the method that best fits the child.

    My Teaching Background
    I have been playing the violin for 25 years, and was taught in the Suzuki method. I attended Dickinson College, where I got a degree in music performance. I have been teaching for the past 9 years, and have taught all different age groups. I currently play with the Dickinson Orchestra, and play privately for occasions like weddings and holiday parties. I am undergoing training with the Suzuki Association to be certified in the Suzuki method.

    My Teaching Philosophy
    Teaching has not only improved my way of playing, but it has changed how I feel about music. Music is such a wonderful asset to anyone's life, and it can be such a joy to learn. My main objective, especially with the younger students, is just to instill in them the appreciation of music. I try to maintain a balance between technique and musicality, and we always strive for the perfection in performance. But every child is different, and they each want a different thing, so I teach accordingly. My one requirement in a lesson is that each child comes with an open mind and the willingness to learn- only then will our lesson be successful.

    Rates And Availability
    I have a private studio attached to my home. However, I do travel to some student's homes, depending on the situation. I am extremely flexible and really try to make the parents and students happy. I charge $22.50 for a half-hour lesson, which is the most usual time slot. If a student is more advanced, we will have a 45-minute or an hour lesson.
