Music Instrument(s) Taught: Piano, Violin
Location: Inner SE Portland
Hello, my name is Arianne. I have been studying piano since age four, and violin since the third grade. I participated in my first piano concerto competition in the fifth grade, and have been hooked on classical piano and music theory ever since. Two of my favorite composers are Bach and Debussy. In high school I experimented with composition in a student group overseen by my own piano instructor, a performer and composer from Boston University. During this time, I was also inspired by greats like Stephane Grappelli, Django Reinhardt, and others to take up jazz violin. Along with teaching, I hope to become a piano tuner and technician in the near future. In my free time, I love to hike, unicycle, and spend time in nature. Music has opened up so many doors for me, and I would love to share my passion for music with any eager student! It is important for you to develop good listening skills, posture, articulation, and sight reading skills–we can work together to develop your musical skills by playing the kinds of pieces you enjoy.
Arianne is currently not accepting new students.
