Layug String Studio has moved! I’m now located in Geneva, Illinois, just west of Randall Rd. Current openings are on Saturday mornings-early afternoons; weeknight availability will be added in summer.
Layug String Studio is open to beginning and intermediate students, from elementary-age up. I especially love teaching beginners *including adults!*; returners who haven’t played for a while and want to get back into it; students who are part of an orchestra but want to boost their playing with lessons. (I do not teach preschool-age or highly advanced students, but will be happy to direct you to those who do!)
My studio focuses on whole musicianship for lifelong playing. This includes healthy understanding of technique, effective practice strategies and time management, understanding of music’s structure (aka “music theory”)–both for better understanding of written music and for creation of your own, and a traditional core repertoire that’s “tweakable” for the kind of music you like to play. I believe music is to be shared: the studio holds both formal and informal performances, encourages school and community orchestra participation, and actively lays the framework for creativity and “jamming” skills.
As you look through the site (be aware some updates are still in progress), feel free to email or give me a call to determine if I’m the right teacher for you. I look forward to being a part of this music community and would love to bring you along!
