We all could use some musical friends! Join our monthly Virtual Studio Circle on Zoom to practice playing for a group, listen to others who are learning, make some musical friends and get to know your colleagues in the studio. We are meeting via Zoom on the last Friday of each month 7:30pm EST. (We also have a studio WhatsApp chat to share music related content, ask questions and stay in touch during the week!)
FREE for students, if you're not a student--join the PATREON community which is an extension of the private studio encompassing students of all ages and levels from across the globe! Come join our positive and welcoming group! We'll be so happy to see you there!! :) <3

Come out to join our IN PERSON Violin Group Class!! We have a small group and meet the 3rd Saturday 5-7pm at the Burlap and Bean Coffee House in Media, PA. Cost is $60 and includes yummy treats from the coffee house. We spend some time warming up, playing some easy exercises and finally are working on repertoire from the Cantigas Renaissance Festival Favorites.

Do you need some direction along your musical path?? Want some musical friends? Need help staying inspired during the week??
Patreon has 3 Tiers: COMMUNITY, TEA CUPS, VIRTUAL STUDIO CIRCLE TEA PARTY. Have a sense of community with weekly posts and questionnaires, weekly lesson videos to add to your practice, and monthly invitations to join our Virtual Studio Circles on ZOOM if you're not already part of the studio.
I would LOVE to see you there!! :) <3
It's always nice to have a few musical friends! You'll definitely make one at the studio nights, but for those who'd like to have some more musical adventures, come along on a studio trip. We've been to Italy to attend the Interharmony International Music Festival and Academy, The Isle of Man, UK to attend the 2019 Lionel Tertis International Viola Competition and would love to visit the Bach Festival in Leipzig, Germany one day! Last summer we ventured to see Hilary Hahn perform the Bach Sonatas and Partitas at the prestigious Tanglewood Music Festival in Massachusetts. Wow that was an unforgettable experience! Around town, we've been to the Philadelphia Art Museum, concerts at Curtis and the Philadelphia Orchestra and lectures at Penn. We're always looking for interesting places to go!

I teach students of all ages and levels! From the little one to the retiree, Lessons are designed around you so every lesson is different depending on the student, but you can expect your lesson to include:
ZOOM GROUP CLASS
Join our kind-hearted group to learn together via Zoom using Leopold Auer's Graded Course of Violin Playing Book 1. It is designed for beginners and those students who are wanting to develop a stronger right hand technique. It's a FREE class for my weekly students, $30 for all other students :)
Leopold Auer Graded Course or Violin Playing Book 1 is comprised entirely of open string exercises to focus on the right hand technique (no left hand). You'll gain a greater control over the bow, sound quality, articulations such as staccato, detache, hammered strokes, etc., rhythms, and your ability to interpret musical styles such as the Minuet, Waltz, Barcarolle, March, etc.
Join the class anytime...see class calendar on the Group Class Page. :)
Violists can join this too, you'll just have to be able to read treble clef and use 4th finger on the A string for E.
Every other Thursday at 8:30pm EST
(see GROUP CLASS page)
