I teach in inner SW (John’s Landing) Portland, OR and enjoy helping children and parents make music an integral part of their life. I offer every other week group classes on Saturday mornings, and have a mixed age studio (currently 4-60+!) that is a particularly warm atmosphere for learning at every age. Fall 2017 will have a group of young kids age 4-6 starting all together in a dedicated group in addition to weekly individual lessons. I also will open up some SATURDAY TEACHING SPOTS!

I note that I am only accepting kid students at this point. I’m a member of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, and founding member of the Cascadia Chamber Group. Please visit my website for more information about me.

I am strongly committed to life long learning of my craft, teaching. I do video self-review regularly, as well as supplementary trainings. This year I am doing a book 1-10 review with acclaimed violin teacher Clarisse Atcherson, (who I note while not an offical suzuki teacher trainer, both teaches regularly at Institute, and studied with John Kendall himself extensively) and Music Mind Games training. Last year I did creative violin training with Sara Smolen, which I incorporate into our group classes. I care about expanding my knowledge, and tools of communicating that knowledge effectively. My two little girls, 6 months & 3, also teach me a lot about how to communicate with kids, as I am in Suzuki piano classes with the 3 year old. I have been on all 3 sides of the suzuki triangle now!

I am also a musiclink teacher, who offers discounted lessons to students on free or reduced lunch programs.

If interested, please inquire at my website, or through this.

Thank you for your interest!
