Hello! My name is John Keene. I currently teach violin at Music & Arts. I have been playing violin since 8 years of age, and now 15 years later I am teaching students new to the instrument! I like to make lessons fun and something to look forward to, and I feel that with my age I am able to relate to and help students that are young, as well as high-school students that are getting ready for college.
I have had the privilege of playing for famous groups, such as the Orlando Philharmonic and the Charlottesville University Orchestra at the University of Virginia. I attended UVA as well as Rollins College, a private school in Florida, where I majored in Music and Computer Science.
My teaching style will be the same as I was taught: the Suzuki method. I find that this teaching method is very crucial for students wanting to broaden their musical horizon as well as master their instrument. I hope to be seeing you or your children up here at Music & Arts, and it would be my pleasure to be your or their teacher!
