Violin Lessons

My violin studio in West Asheville, NC welcomes students of all ages. I love introducing beginners to their new instrument, teaching advancing students new techniques and exciting repertoire, and everything in between. I am currently seeing students both online and on my front porch in lovely Malvern Hills. In the warmer months I also host an outdoor and socially distanced  group class so students have the opportunity to play music with their peers in a safe environment.  While I teach mainly classical, I love incorporating any of the students other musical interests into their lessons as well.

Kate is a gentle and caring instructor who is dedicated to her student’s success. My daughter (age 9) feels very connected to Kate and each challenge Kate gives her makes her feel more confident in herself as a musician. Kate has been so flexible throughout this year as we navigate how lessons can continue safely and she has gone above and beyond to ensure her students receive quality instruction.

I absolutely love having Kate as my violin instructor!! As a "mature student" she finds the right balance of challenging me but keeping it fun! She explains all aspects of theory and technique very thoroughly and clearly. I highly recommend her!

Kate is a wonderful instructor. We’ve been taking lessons with her for almost a year and she has really helped our three children grow as violinists. Not only have their technical skills improved, but she’s made a big impact on their motivation and confidence. I highly recommend her!
