  • Lessons

    Kristen has been teaching violin since 2005, starting at a little music shop in her  hometown. She later started her own home studio with her mother, who is a piano teacher. She teaches students of all ages, and loves watching them progress! Several of her students have been members of the Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestra, and two of them were finalists in the annual Concerto Competition. She loves helping her students accomplish their goals, whether it is to play with an orchestra or learning how to play a favorite piece.

    Kristen customize her lessons to each students' unique goals and abilities, believing that it is important for the student to enjoy learning and practicing so that they develop their own passion for music and the violin. She helps her students set their weekly practice goals as well as helping them determine what they want to accomplish during the year. She also believes that positive encouragement is an important aspect of teaching, so that the student is rewarded for their hard work and is inspired to continue accomplishing their goals.

    Lessons are taught weekly, in 30, 45, or 60 minute time slots. Please contact for rates and scheduling.
