Welcome to Pro Violin!

I will omit this section of my website when I return to giving lessons in person:

I will be teaching online until at least October of 2021 but that is a big if for now until the virus is no longer a concern.  If that changes, this section of my website will be updated.

Due to the Coronavirus, I will be teaching online to keep people healthy until further notice.  Several online learning platforms are available.  Please contact me for details.

Violin rentals will be available when the virus is no longer a concern.

I have started students online and that is going well.

Offering violin lessons throughout the twin cities area:

The greatest joy of teaching is seeing the musical progress of my students from week to week. Therefore, I adopt strategies to facilitate their growth and find new ways to promote musical progress.   I also like the challenge of learning about my various students because they all grasp music differently.”
