  • I've been teaching private music lessons for over 20 years. In October of 2008 I found a wonderful space for a music studio, and Tartan Tundra Music was born.

    Instruments taught:

    Violin/Fiddle:in many styles including Classical, Celtic, Old Timey, Alaskan, International (Russian, Scandinavian, Eastern European) and more.

    Mandolin: Mainly in Old Timey and Celtic styles, but the mandolin is just as versatile as the violin and can be used in many wonderful kinds of music.

    Guitar: Folk, rock, oldies, Celtic... Ukulele: One of the most amusing and fun instruments ever! And great for beginners of all ages!

    Viola: A viola is larger than a violin with a lovely, deep sound, but the method of playing is the same as violin.

    Bodhrán: Irish drum. There is an art to this, it isn't just whacking away on a drum head. Fun and interesting.

    Vocal Coaching: I can help you get your voice out in the open and help you sing.

Take Music Lessons via Skype, Facetime or Google

  • Taking Distance Lessons
    Distance Lessons are $36 per half hour, and $54 for 45 minutes. Lessons are taken via various apps such as Facetime, Zoom, or Google Meet. I prefer FaceTime for the quality and ease of use, but there are many ways to connect. You must have a web camera and have the app for one of on your computer, laptop, tablet or phone. Also, please let me know which one you want to use!
