I have been teaching violin and viola full-time for nearly 20 years. Although I don't have a degree in music (I graduated university with a different major), I was mentored by a long-standing, well-respected private instructor and school orchestra director. I'm happy to say that I really enjoy teaching and many of my students are among the top players at there schools. I should also mention that I teach adults as well. I accept students from complete beginners up through advanced players.
