Libbie believes in gentle encouragement and fostering a true excitement for classical music. What is most important to Libbie is that she plants a seed in her students hearts for music. It is her goal to help prospective students gain the necessary skills to reach a solid level of proficiency, then shape their personal style on the violin for the future and beyond.
While Libbie is a seasoned instrumentalist, she is — more importantly — a lover of music and and educator. Her goal in lessons is to find what inspires each student and to give them a well-rounded foundation they can develop for a lifetime, as well as learn basic problem-solving skills through music. Libbie knows it only takes one great teacher to open up the world of musical possibilities, and she hopes to serve as that inspiration for all students.
