If you would like to learn the violin, viola, or cello, StringsPlay Studios has a sweet setup! I received my degree in violin performance from DePaul University and went on to perform in concerts with the Bangkok Opera, Bangkok Symphony and other orchestras, as well as giving public recitals. In addition to performing, I have taught for over ten years - during which time I worked as the Head of Strings at the Regent’s School, a prestigious international prep school in Bangkok, Thailand. My students have gone on to study at institutions such as the Royal Academy of Music in London, England and to play with the Bangkok Symphony. Locally, I have students playing at all levels in the BYSO orchestras. I am currently accepting students of all ability levels and ages at my private studio in Kirkland (Kingsgate area). Each month, students will be given three private lessons followed by a monthly masterclass. Lessons can vary in length depending on the student, and are taught weekly. Please review my website for more information, and call to set up a time to interview/audition for a place in the studio.

Bellevue location - Bridle Trails area. Close to 405/520 Interchange. I take beginning through college. I use traditional methods (no Suzuki) we learn to read notes and count right away. I believe in enjoying music and learning the joy of hard work . I work with serious students. I can help you if you are struggling in school, but you will have to work for me. I have an undergrad and masters in performance (Whitman College, UW) and more than 20 years experience teaching. My students play in SYSO and BYSO. I am currently on MITC staff. My major teachers have been mostly Russian trained. I understand that not everyone who wants to play well wants to do this for a living. When we meet, tell me your goals and we will make a plan to get you to the level that you want to be playing at.
