I am currently a high school orchestra director and youth orchestra conductor and have been teaching private violin lessons since I was 14 years old. I have taught students of all ages--from 4 years old to 50 years old. I am easy-going and have a great sense of humor. I have a great ear (perfect pitch) and can pay great attention to detail. My strictness and demand levels for my private students are dependent upon how serious about music you are--whether you are doing it just for fun or to prepare for a career as a musician.
