I’m Mikayla! I am a wife, mom and violinist! I’m living in Utah and I LOVE music! I’ve had a love for music for as long as I can remember. I took private violin lessons all through middle school, high school, and college. I had the opportunity to take private viola lessons for a semester (in college) as well. I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts degree in Music from Brigham Young University-Idaho in April, 2020. I was taught by Dr. Dallin Hansen, who was such an amazing teacher!

I focused on pedagogy classes throughout my college years and learned how to teach the Suzuki method. I have been teaching violin and viola for 7 years and I have taught over 50 students, ranging from 5 years old to 50 years old. I teach beginning levels (my favorite to teach!) through advanced levels. Teaching is one of my favorite things to do and I enjoy sharing my love of music with others.

I also love to perform in symphonies, quartets and as a soloist. During my senior year of high school, I had the opportunity to sit as first chair in the symphony and was able to perform Vivaldi and Mozart concertos with the orchestra. Throughout college, I had the opportunity to be in multiple quartets, duets, and even an octet. I performed in the BYU-Idaho Symphony every semester and participated in solo violin recitals every semester as well.
