Courses I Teach

Small Group Teaching

  • Studio Classes, Faculty Adviser to L'Alto: Viola Club @ U of U I continue to offer studio/performance/masterclasses to students. I also act as Faculty Adviser to the student Viola Club. They successfully received funding for a Guest Artist to come give a lecture, masterclass, and recital. It was an incredibly succesful event.  09/01/2018  -  present
  • For the 2017/2018 school year, I am continuing studio classes for my viola students, and I have added a requirement that the students perform in studio class twice per semester. It has given opportunities for the students to improve their performing skills, increase their preparation for performances, and work through performance anxiety before important recitals and juries. We continue to do group technique as well, but less frequency this year. (The size of my teaching studio doubled, so there isn't as much time in studio classes as there used to be!) This year we've had the opportunity to include guests. A violist traveling with the touring production of "Bright Star" came and spoke to the class about how to create a successful freelancing career playing the viola. It was very informative for the class and I hope to be able to continue bringing guests as they are available. Classes are two hours in length and occur approximately every other Tuesday.  09/2017  -  09/2018
  • I have added Studio Classes to my course requirements. Private viola students are taught and perform in a group setting. I pick a topic of technique on which to focus for the class, we all work together, and then each student has an opportunity to perform for each other.  09/15/2015  -  present
