Alice Buchanan, Violin

Manhattan Violin Lessons

Alice holds a Bachelors of Music in Education from Middle Tennessee State University, is a registered Suzuki Violin Instructor up to Book 3, and a certified Orff Music Instructor. She focuses on teaching classical technique, combined with an emphasis on musicality, theory, and teaching a varied repertoire.

Alice is especially passionate about teaching toward student self-direction, supporting students in their own agency as musicians, and educating students about artists typically left out of the canon. Her philosophy is that with disciplined practice, all children and adults can play music at a high level. If expectations are high, yet encouraged with patience and positivity, the results will be beautiful music!
