Learn violin from a classically trained violinist with 15+ years of teaching eperience!
With 15 years of teaching experience and over 20 years performance experience, I have dedicated my entire life to the violin and finding innovative, creative, and effective ways of teaching and learning. In my studio, students of all ages, levels, and backgrounds are welcome! I have experience teaching beginners (both child and adult) all the way to students at the university level. I strive to create lessons and materials that cater to the uniqueness of each student and their goals. A love of music and the instrument will always be at the forefront of the learning experience!

Ms. Clarice is an all-star teacher and a extremely talented violinist. I had the honor of working with Clarice as an undergrad student at Arizona State University. Clarice was the teaching assistant for Danwen Jiang's Violin Studio. Clarice helped shape me to the violinist I am today, she helped instill a confidence in me I did not have before. She helped bring out passion to my playing in my performances. Clarice has a vast knowledge of violin pedagogy, technique, repertoire and music theory. Ms. Clarice loves each of her students and it shows through her character, you can tell she truly loves what she does and has a passion for teaching music. I am happy to call her not only my former but my friend as well. if you are looking for a teacher who makes learning fun and pushes you to greatness, then I highly recommend working with Clarice Collins!
