Start Here



Welcome to

 I started this blog to share all of the exciting things I learn about music & the Suzuki method as I learn and grow as a teacher. It’s one of my favorite topics of conversation and I’m excited that you are here to join in! I started Suzuki violin at two and half years old, I’m the mom of two girls and I teach Suzuki violin, viola and Early Childhood Education classes full time in Hillsboro, OR.


My passion is finding and sharing great tips, inspiring people and ideas and sharing what I’ve learned during my life immersed in all things music & Suzuki.

If this is your first time here I’ve created this page to help you get started.
