About Robyn J.

I have been playing viola and violin for over 30 years. I hold Bachelor's and Master's degrees in music and teach assorted music courses at Pellissippi State Community College. I have taught children, teens, and adults; both beginners and continuing students. I learn where the student is skill-wise and we go from there. I also ask the student what their goals are, so that we have a set to-do list with which to work. I love to encourage people and make them laugh, so students can expect lessons with me to be filled with music, laughter, and learning!
