Types of Lessons


In Home

I can teach at your home but I will be phasing this out soon and offering lessons in my home studio. I find it more helpful to have a studio so there is less distraction for my students.

We have a home environment and offer lessons in my home studio.

Questions and Answers

How long are the lessons?

Lessons are 30 minutes or 45 minutes long. There is much involved in just the preparation of the instrument prior to playing. Tightening the bow, applying rosin to the hair, installing the shoulder rest (a device that aids in holding the violin properly), tuning the violin, etc. All these activities make a difference in the final product of excellent playing. I give my students complete details and assistance in this preparation. Then, of course, is the actual study and mastery of technique and interpretation; all facets of violin playing must be refined. Violin playing is a fine art; it requires a proper amount of lesson time.

With what frequency?

Most students require one lesson per week. I have discovered, however, that beginners profit greatly from two lessons per week, half an hour each lesson. The more you practice the better you will become. I like to make sure my students improve and gain something from each and every lesson.


I typically request and email and ask a few questions for safety and security for myself and clients.

I love to teach and cannot wait to hear from you.
