I have an active and growing studio! As of January 2013, I teach exclusively from my private studio at my home in Hyde Park.
I use the Suzuki method and teach violin and viola to people of all ages and levels of musical experience. I am known for my innovative approach to teaching adult students and for my focus on body awareness and physical conditioning. Music theory is a major component of my teaching style. All of my students receive music theory and sightreading training integrated into the lesson. Private lessons in beginning music theory are also available.
Currently, I am working on posting recordings and relevant information for my students at all levels. So far I have done the beginner pages, and am working to determine the appropriate copyright guidelines to post recordings from Suzuki materials.

Prospective students: Email me at meredithaskamcbride [at] gmail [dot] com or call me at 312-480-8694. Please let me know a little bit about yourself and/or your child, and what you are looking for with respect to your/your child’s music education. Please indicate which instrument you are interested in. I will then work with you to determine the best course of study for you/your child.
**As of March 2013, my studio is full. If you would like to be placed on my waiting list for either violin or viola, please email me at meredithaskamcbride [at] gmail [dot] com.
