Hi, I'm Aaron

Hi, I'm Aaron

Instilling a love for music in my students is my number one priority. When a student loves what they are doing, practice stops being work and starts being fun. Students progress more quickly and have more fun doing it.

My students learn skills that benefit them in all parts of their lives. So much of what makes a great musician also makes a great person. Patience, confidence, determination--these are qualities I want foster in all my students.

A major facet of my teaching philosophy is building great practice habits. When a student learns how to practice properly, they learn how to approach a problem creatively and come up with a solution. This makes practicing a skill that is applicable not just to the violin, but to many facets of a persons life. By knowing how to practice, one knows how to learn anything.
