About

I am a musician of many talents who is passionate about playing all styles of music! My focal points are on the viola along with the violin, but I certainly am not limited to those two instruments! Performing in chamber ensembles and symphony orchestras regularly keeps me sharp in music theory, and frequent songwriting helps keep my rhythm guitar, ukulele, and piano in practice. Sharing my love and knowledge of music with others is one of my many talents--with over 12 years of teaching experience, enthusiasm continues to shine through in my lessons.

I began my music study at the age of 5 with the piano and branched out to stringed viol instruments at age 7. Soon to follow were the guitar, ukulele, and drum set. It has been said from early on in my music study that I can play just about any instrument that is placed in my hands. I have studied and practiced the viola under master musicians from San Jacinto College and the University of Texas at Brownsville, where I remained principal violist at both institutions throughout my academic studies and degrees earned. I received student spotlight and full scholarships to both institutions and have great advice and experience with auditions!

I tailor my lessons to fit each individual needs of the students I teach. Each lesson is focused on having fun and enjoying the instrument that is being played! The best way to learn to play an instrument, after all, is to PLAY!


 

 

It varies for each student! Let me know what your musical experience is, and I'll recommend a good method. I tailor my lessons to fit the needs of each individual. I have a variety of teaching experiences from advanced college student auditions to beginner adults to 4 year old prodigies. My goal is to keep music and lessons fun!

Ruthanne noticed my daughter was getting bored with her playing material and suggested we switch it up. My daughter was so excited after today’s lesson. Thank you!

Ruthanne is always so patient and encouraging with my daughter. She finds the perfect balance between pushing my daughter on areas where she can improve, while also making sure to be supportive and positive with her critiques. We couldn't love her more!
