    About MeContact Me
    Introduction
    Hi! I'm Tracy. I teach private violin lessons in the Salt Lake Valley. I am based in South Salt Lake, but I travel around the valley for lessons as well. I accept violin students of all ages and levels, from beginner to college prep.

    My Teaching Background
    I hold a bachelor's degree in music education from Brigham Young University and am an active member of the Salt Lake Symphony. I have taught violin to all ages, ranging from 4 years old to 60+. I have experience teaching students of different levels of playing ability and in different settings, such as private lessons, group lessons, elementary school orchestra, junior high orchestra, and high school orchestra.

    My Teaching Philosophy
    I tailor my lessons to bring out the best in each student according to their existing strengths and weaknesses. Advanced and intermediate students will find that I focus on both technique and mastery of artistic expression. For beginners, I teach my students to read music, as well as by rote for ear training. I tailor my teaching to the needs of each individual student to draw out each student's natural strengths and to improve weaknesses.

    Some have asked me if I teach the Suzuki method. Having started out on the Suzuki method myself when I was 6 years old, I do incorporate elements of the Suzuki method in my teaching, but I do not teach solely using the method. I think that there are pros and cons to all methods of teaching. My teaching style is the culmination of what I personally find to be the best of all the teaching methods and strategies that I have studied and tried.

    Rates And Availability
    Rates are $30/half hour or $60/hour. There are also a very limited number of time slots and where I am willing to travel to your home for an additional $15/month, especially in the Murray, Taylorsville, and West Valley areas. For best results, students need to commit to being taught weekly or every other week at minimum. Please contact me for the most current information on availability or to schedule a first trial lesson.
