Thank you for taking time to visit my web site. If you would like to learn to play the violin, viola, cello, guitar, or bass or if you are already learning but would like a fresh approach, I would love to be your teacher. My goal is to help open the world of music making to my students, enabling them to become accomplished, confident musicians.


I teach a wide range of styles; Classical, Celtic, Jazz, American fiddle, Rock & Pop. I also believe it is important to play with and listen to others, learning to blend and fit a part together with others as partners in the group's overall "sound". To this end I offer a small group ensemble class for my students when they are able to read well enough.


The skills and joy of making music are things that you or your child can develop and retain for a lifetime.



I have included some information to help parents and violin students find an instrument that fits.

This table lists sizes and the approximate ages that each violin size is suitable for. You may need to adjust up or down if your child is particularly large or small for their age, but the following will give you some idea of what violin size you should be looking at;

You may also want to get a shoulder rest and either download a tuner app or purchase a tuner.

Size Approximate Age
1/16 3-4
1/8 4-6
1/4 6-8
1/2 8-9
3/4 9 - 12
4/4 12 yrs +
