I use a hybrid approach of Suzuki and string method books with my violin and viola students. Rhythm/note reading is taught as well as how to create a beautiful tone. Familiar songs are played starting on the first day! I also conduct a string orchestra and students are encouraged to join after achieving a certain level of proficiency to enjoy the benefits of performing with others.

So far 1 lesson and Shannon made my tween feel very easy (he is a bit shy to play in front of people) and motivated. We are looking forward to more lessons!
Evie S.
My daughter’s first lesson with Shannon was fantastic! Shannon has such a warm personality that immediately put us all at ease. She is so patient, kind and knowledgable. She had many tips and tricks to help my daughter learn. My daughter left the lesson eager to practice what she learned, and eager to go to her next lesson. I couldn’t ask for a better outcome!

You will be guided by me through method books and also use supplemental materials I create to help you advance. You will learn the basic 5 positions of the instrument to increase your sounding range. You will learn orchestra skills including following a conductor and articulation and intonation, styles of expression, and rhythm. I have been teaching violin for 7 years. My students have won seats in school orchestras and spots in various music schools. I want to be your next instructor.

I enjoy having Evelyn as a violin instructor. She is very knowledgeable and expresses instruction in a concise and easy to understand way. She is very kind. I am an adult learner, and Evelyn is very understanding that sometimes practice time gets minimized due to life responsibilities. She is encouraging and I would recommend her as an instructor for any age.

I love teaching strings. Violin is my main instrument. I focus heavily on bow technique. I have gotten students into youth orchestras and passed college auditions. I like to use the Essential Elements and Suzuki books.

"Susanna is a great teacher.

I have never played a violin before, and she is walking me through the process with patience, clear instructions, different interesting and fun ways of explaining concepts, which make lessons flow easily. By the time the lesson ends, I can hardly notice that an hour has passed by.

It is a joy to have her as a teacher. I have had a few questions off schedule, and she has never failed to answer them promptly.
I look forward to every lesson I have with her to keep learning to play this beautiful and amazing instrument."
