    About MeContact Me
    Introduction
    I am a mother of 4. I like to have fun and learn new things.

    My Teaching Background
    I received my Master's in Violin Performance in 2002 from the University of Arizona. I have been teaching since I was in high school, over 16 years. I have taught as young as 3 years, and as old as 70. I don't think a person is ever too old to learn.I have been playing the violin since I was 12 years old. I have traveled all over the world and US playing with different orchestras.

    My Teaching Philosophy
    I like to use humor. For younger students, I use games and other activities to help keep their attention. I think that because I appear to be young, I am not intimidating to young children. I would hope that for adult students they would feel they can trust me to teach them what they need to know. I have had many adult students.

    Rates And Availability
    I teach in two areas of town, the East side in Clackamas at a private residence, and the West side in Tigard at my home

    I am willing to travel when neccessary. I add approximately $10 for travel.

    I charge $20 per half hour, $30 for 45 minutes, and $40 for 1 hour. Unless the student has already been playing violin, I recommend starting with a half hour. We can always adjust as neccessary. I also like to be flexible with my rates. If a family is struggling financially, I will do my best to accomidate them.
