I have two musical passions: I love to play the violin and I love to teach!
I have a heart for private violin lessons and providing a solid musical foundation for students of all ages and ability levels. I believe one of the great benefits of quality instruction is the opportunity it gives students to follow their love for music wherever it may take them. Because I had parents and music teachers dedicated to my musical development I was able to follow my musical passions into college.
I teach violin and viola lessons out of my home studio in Clinton, MS. My studio is conveniently located near Mississippi College and serves students from all over the Jackson, MS Metro area.
I teach violin and viola lessons to children and adults of all ages and ability levels.
I love seeing my students learn and progress and am dedicated to helping them meet their goals and dreams.
"Emily is a wonderful teacher and I enjoy playing with her. I am able to fix things, especially my intonation, and put the sections [of my piece] together musically." - Rachel
"I get to know the music so well I feel comfortable playing the piece in front of people. You write everything down, and you're very supportive!." - Chris
"I had a great time at the recital Saturday. All obstacles were overcome, thanks to Emily and Ken (for the extra strings). It was great to meet other students and share experiences. Emily works with a wide range of students, tailors her instructions to meet the needs of each at the level at which they are working. And, if you have not heard her play in the MS Symphony Orchestra, then you don't know just how gifted a musician and person she is. Emily, thanks for all your patience and devotion to the art of music. And, Ben, many thanks to you for working with me in the presentation of my piece." - Fred (adult student)
