Emily Hale

Traditional and Suzuki violin

Teaching Artist Statement
Children and adults can acquire and develop a host of non-musical benefits and skills through music study, when approached with commitment and in a healthy, sustainable way. Among other qualities, I seek to impart to my students a solid technical foundation and foster good practice habits, so music-making can become a beneficial part of their everyday lives. As a registered Suzuki Method instructor I particularly enjoy working with young children and their families, making violin fun and engaging in an age-appropriate way.
