Music has always inspired and motivated me. In my house growing up there was an old violin that sat in the corner of our front room, unplayed and untouched. My parents had bought it for my older sister with the little money they had from my father's fisherman wages. A month or two later it went back in its case and shoved in a place that was easy to overlook. 10 years later, I opened the case, found a teacher, and joined a beginner orchestra. 11 years later and I still find the violin as inspiring and beautiful as it was that first day. However, it wasn't always easy. Violin lessons were paid out of my own pocket, time was sacrificed for practice and eventually, an advanced violin was needing to be bought. Violin has always been a symbol of self sacrifice and motivation in my life. These circumstances have become the foundation of the teaching methods I use for my students. The beginning of each lesson, we work together to create goals that stretch the student while keeping them motivated. The lessons are then tailored to their abilities, keeping in mind what is possible through their current goals. Students are expected to push themselves but knowing that I will give in as much effort as they do. My goal is to not only teach my students how to play the songs but to foster a pattern of self motivation and healthy goal making.
About Emmaleigh L.

Hello! My name is Emmaleigh and I have been playing violin for 11 years and teaching for 4 years. I am halfway through my undergraduate course as an Education Major and spend my spare time at jam sessions, slack lining at the park, biking, and spending time with my husband. I love all kinds of violin but am primarily focused in classical. My own violin education was through Suzuki and adapted to self chosen concertos and pieces as I grew more advanced. I have also taught beginning piano although my main instrument is violin. Recently, I've been taking old time fiddling lessons to expand my repertoire and absolutely love it! I believe firmly that If my students are learning and putting in the effort, I will put in just as much towards growing my own abilities.
