    About MeContact Me
    I'm looking for students of all levels, ages 6 and up--whether you've been playing for years or don't know a violin from a cupcake (it's been claimed!), I would love to work with you. I am a classically trained violinist of 19 years and have been teaching for the past 5. Also within the last 5 years, I have expanded my pallet to include many styles of music: rock, pop, experimental, improvisation, gypsy/circus, noise, after working on the basics of technique, I can help you play the music you want to play. I will work with you to design a unique program that best suits your abilities, interests, and style of choice.

    I also offer basic music theory lessons and can incorporate as much or as little theory as you would like into your violin lesson.


    I charge $50/hour, $30/half hour, and teach in the Columbia City neighborhood (in Seattle). I will come to you (!!) for $60/hour, $40/half hour--availability may change depending on your location.
