Music Instruction

Kayleigh began teaching violin in 2000, and has since taught violin, viola, piano, music history, and ear training.  She received a dual bachelor’s degree in music history and viola performance in 2008 from the New England Conservatory, where she was also a teaching assistant for solfege.  From 2008-2010, she worked with special needs students in Rochester, NY, at Music Education Centers, where she primarily worked with an autistic population.  She also has music experience with the blind.  In the fall of 2010, she was a teaching assistant for undergraduate music history classes at New England Conservatory, working primarily with Anne Hallmark.  Kayleigh has also extensively studied in the Tuttle Coordination system, and strives to teach students of all ages how to use their bodies more effectively.  She believes that string playing should be pain-free, and that a technique of relaxed strength can lead to extended success and enjoyment.  She has worked with students of all ability levels, and is comfortable teaching students of all ages.
