Lessons and Ensembles

Violin Lessons

I have been teaching violin since 1991 and have had many students go on to become violin teachers and performers. Music is a great way to open a child’s mind to better overall learning and a spectacular hobby for the adult student. You’ll even get chances to perform (if you want them).

I have studied with professors from the Galamian, Suzuki, Roland, and old school Russian methodologies and incorporate the best of all. I also continue to learn and study to help students of all ages and abilities gain masterful technique and sound.

Students excel into concertmaster positions in school orchestras; are accepted into youth symphonies such as MYA, Wisconsin Honors Orchestra, and other youth symphonies in the Midwest and beyond; compete for scholarships; and, learn how to play the styles that interest them most.

Many previous students have received college music scholarships, as well as gone on to professional musical careers. Adult students have continued to learn and grow and enjoy their instruments through community orchestras, open jam sessions and groups.


Performing both as a soloist and in ensembles are great ways to show off your newly-learned and mastering skills. CreasonStudios ensembles offer a varied selection in music and incorporates many levels of abilities into the performances. Music selection is based on student interest, different styles, holiday, etc. and is both written and improvised. Much of the music is arranged to match the abilities of the students so no one is left behind. Ensembles consist of many instruments along with the string group, such as: guitar, piano, drums, gongs, French horn, vocals, flutes, banjo, kazoo, whatever you have! and more.
