Beacon Citizen Network (BCN): a place for neighbors to get the word out, be heard and stay informed in all matters concerning Beacon, NY.



I am a classical violinist and I'm super excited to be moving to Beacon over the summer. I am offering weekly private instruction from my home beginning in August, and am hoping to be offering other types of music classes shortly after that. I accept students of any age, level of ability, and level of interest, and have experience teaching the beginner (age 5 or age 50) to the aspiring professional. If you've ever considered taking up an instrument, or you'd like your child to broaden their horizons, shoot me an email for more information. Through BCN or

I think we could certainly work something out, Kristen. I'm happy you've gotten back into it. Can you email me directly at and we can maybe set up an initial meeting once I get a better handle on our impending move?

hi! i played for about 12 years then took a long "hiatus." i am picking the instrument up again, just for fun, but am finding it hard to get back to the good technique i learned in the beginning and am hoping to find some technique refresher lessons in the area.

To answer Christine G's post (which I'm not savvy enough to find outside of my own page): I don't teach piano, alas. I know some great pianists, though. Dunno if they'd teach in Beacon. I'll look into it. The "other music classes" I mentioned are in the formative stages and would depend on interest. But, I was thinking along the lines of gatherings of people to explore various types of music on a monthly basis with live music. So, maybe a brief history of the string quartet with a live ensemble every month or something like that. Mostly musing right now.

I do, but prefer to teach viola to beginners and just-for-funners.

do you teach viola as well, by any chance?
