Mary Kay's Violin Instruction

phone pics 003  I have been playing violin most of my life, starting in the 5th grade, and teaching since 1985. I currently play with the Cabrillo Symphony and various string ensembles. My husband, Jeff, is my favorite musical companion and we are blessed to play at couples weddings and other events. I am a trained classical violinist and I als$45enjoy  Celtic music ( Irish, Scottish, French jigs, reels, aires, and ballads) so I teach both depending on the desire of the student. My home, in Mount Hermon, Cal., is my music studio where I teach  Iindividual  lessons.

Me.30 minute lessons- $35

45 minute lessons:   $50

60 min.   $65

    Hi, Mary Kay. My name is Marcy and I'm a friend of Sue Brown's. She gave me your name and website (and says hi!) to contact you about my granddaughter who is interested in violin lessons. Are you taking new students?

    Her name is Alex and she just turned 13. I'm not sure which type of music that she's interested in learning, but she loves the violin and has expressed an interest in learning. She took piano lessons for 1 year when she was 8. She doesn't remember much from that experience. I was thinking she should start out with half-hour lessons. Does that sound right for a beginner?

    Please let me know if you have any slots available. Email is preferred. My home number is 689-0332.

    Thank you!

    My name is Monique, I am a homeschool parent through Ocean Grove. I found you under the list of vendors for violin lessons. Do you have any openings for my daughter, she is 17 and currently has a violin that she is learning on her own through research and self practice, but I would like for her to take lessons. Thank you.

    Hello. I am writing to try to see if you and Jeff have any CD's for sale, ITunes, etc. You played at my wedding at Mount Hermon four years ago. Today is my anniversary and my wife and I were going through our pictures and videos. We absolutely love your music and would like to be able to listen to it regularly. Is this an option? Thanks for any info.

    Clint and Amy
