Welcome to my school webpage!
I teach beginner violin to 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students at the following schools:
Meadow School, Four Oaks Elementary, Benson Elementary, Dixon Road Elementary, McGee's Elementary, South Smithfield Elementary, West Smithfield Elementary, and Selma Elementary.
We meet for one class each week during enhancement time. At the end of the year, usually in May, we have a small concert to showcase the students and all they have accomplished.
Parents are responsible for purchasing a violin and lesson book for their child. Some great beginner violins and the lesson book can be found at amazon.com. I recommend a 3/4 size violin. Use this link as a guide: Beginner Violin This amazon page also has the book and a music stand for an additional cost.
I will let you know when classes begin. I try to allow two to three weeks for parents to purchase the violin and lesson book, so classes will probably begin mid-September.

Johnston County Public Schools is always striving to provide students and families with exemplary service. In most cases, school bus transportation is essential for many students to access a quality education. In order to meet our daily goal, it is necessary to implement change that enhances and improves our overall operation. As we prepare for the 2022-2023 school year, JCPS Transportation Services and School Nutrition will be hosting a Summer Information Fair at each high school.
Our district is launching a new portion of our website to further communicate bus delays and replacements with our families. We encourage those who have a student who utilizes our transportation to get to or from school to visit www.johnston.k12.nc.us/busdelays for updates on our school bus routes beginning Tuesday, January 18.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the 2022 Johnston County Public Schools salary schedule at their regularly scheduled Dec. 14 meeting.
