“Sarah has an amazing way of keeping the lesson interactive and helpful! There is no pressure to keep going if you don’t understand something, and Sarah will give you different solutions based on what you are struggling with. Finally, she always has a good attitude, and will keep the lesson upbeat and effective! I would highly recommend lessons with Sarah if you want to learn violin!”

Violin lessons are now available in Paso Robles and online!

You can learn any genre at any age, whether you’re 5, 35, or 75 years old. From traditional American Bluegrass to Katy Perry to Mozart to Django-style Swing music, you can learn to play your favorite song on the violin or viola with determination and effective instruction. My 20+ years of musical experience include playing for opera and film scores, throwing down hundreds of studio tracks, touring with Americana and punk bands, performing for weddings, funerals, parties, school assemblies, and I want to share that knowledge with you and accompany you on your artistic journey.
