mission as a private studio teacher is to instruct and assist students in their
technical and musical growth in ways that are inspiring, challenging, rewarding
and fun. Music lessons should be a vehicle for your journey; using music in
joy, to reflect, to escape and to be a better human being, share success and
happiness in every community you are a part of.
I hold three recitals a year (spring, summer (aka "Kickball Recital) and holiday) which are great goals for students. I am a member of IST (Independent String Teachers of Madison) where there are usually 6 more opportunities throughout the school year for students to play in a recital hall amongst other IST teachers' students. I encourage students to find a group to play and perform with, be it a young students' Saturday group class, WYSO (Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestras), or local community orchestra. My more advanced students take auditions for orchestras and compete in concerto competitions. I am very open to students getting as much exposure as they want and welcome them to partake in the opportunities other studio teachers in Madison offer.
I teach privately from my home in Madison as well as at the Goodman Community Center for Music Makers, a non-profit group.
Beginning students may also start together in one time slot. (They must have the same amount of experience for this to work.)
