As soon as I began learning to play the violin myself, I knew I wanted to be a music teacher. Now over fifteen years later I enjoy sharing my passion for music and instilling that enthusiasm in my students.
I teach violin through the traditional method in which students learn to play the violin as they learn to read music. Students are also taught improvisation, ear training, music theory, and music history. While mainly using a classical approach, I incorporate alternative styles to fit the needs of each student.
"Miss Lora has a unique gift for capturing the attention of her students. Her kindness, attention to detail, and her musical knowledge have produced children that are hungry to learn. My daughter loved her sessions with Miss Lora. I am extremely pleased with my daughter's progress after only a few months of lessons!" --Renee
"I was amazed week in and week out at Lora's ability to motivate and teach creative ways to help my daughter love playing the violin. Lora made the lesson time such a wonderful experience that my 7 year old begged to switch from piano to violin as well. I have even begun to learn from watching Lora teach." --Jessica
"Lora is a gifted musician and a wonderful teacher. She was able to teach our daughter great fundamentals while making it fun for her. We were so blessed to have her as Bella's first violin teacher." --Nicole
"My 6 year old son came to Miss Lora without any knowledge of how to play violin or how to read notes. I found her methods to be wonderful for his age group and inventive to keeping little ones interested. Her sweet spirit and patience had the kids listening and obeying her instructions. After one year he enjoys playing songs and being challenged with the next level. We are very sad that Lora had to move away and that we will have to search for a new teacher. "--Susan
