I believe that everyone can learn to play beautiful music! My passion is caring, thoughtful instruction centered on student joy and achievement.

I work with students age five and up, from getting total beginners started to coaching professional-level players. I specialize in traditional Irish fiddle, ear-training, playing without tension and pain, child and adult beginners, and having fun all the while. Lessons are available in-person at my home studio in Fort Thomas, Kentucky, or online via Skype.

I’ve helped students who can only play with sheet music discover the freedom of learning and playing totally by ear. I also work with advanced and professional players who are interested in developing their skills as an Irish fiddler, or who are dealing with pain-related issues. Students who have never even held a fiddle are amazed to be playing great music within the first month, with proper technique to boot!
