Cindy's instruction on violin, viola, cello, and upright bass focuses on each student's individual needs. Her students master the basics in note-reading and performance techniques while also preparing for public performance opportunities. Once students are ready, they can branch out and explore different genres, like Celtic, Folk, Country, Show tunes, Jazz, in addition to the Classical repertoire. Students can also prepare for auditions, solo and ensemble, all-state, and talent shows.
