Emilie Benigno

I believe that each student is unique and has the ability to succeed; my goal is to nurture and develop their love of music, giving them the confidence and tools to reach their own goals. I'm a classically trained violinist with a B.M. in Violin Performance and an M.M. in Violin Performance and Suzuki Pedagogy. I love teaching students of all ages and ability levels and I have found just as much joy in teaching Twinkle as I have teaching Mozart concertos. I'm currently accepting students in Halifax, NS or online from anywhere in the world!
