I accept beginning and intermediate (child and adult) students. I use the Suzuki Method (especially for young students) combined with my own teaching techniques passed onto me from previous teachers. My instructors have included Dr. Madeline Schatz-Harris, Charles Gray (St. Olaf College), and Linda Wang (University of Denver).
I also add a bit of Alexander Technique Concepts into lessons for Adults. You can read much more about this technique online, but it can briefly be explained as “a way of learning to move mindfully through life. The Alexander process shines a light on inefficient habits of movement and patterns of accumulated tension, which interferes with our innate ability to move easily and according to how we are designed.” (http://www.alexandertechnique.com/). I am not a certified Alexander Technique instructor, but rather weave it’s concepts into regular violin lessons. If you would like to take separate private Alexander Technique lessons, I highly recommend local instructor, Heidi Brende Leathwood at the Lamont School of Music at the University of Denver.
1hr lesson once a week required (or .5 hour lessons once a week for young beginning students)
