John Michael Fox, Instructor and MentorFox Teaching Studio offers a unique opportunity for violin, viola, and cello, students of all ages and advancements to learn to play in a nurturing but motivated and energetic atmosphere. The student is encouraged to work through technical and musical issues empowering the student to problem solve and gain confidence in his or her playing.


The historical traditions of string playing are combined with state-of-the-art and up-to-date developments that are innovative and sometimes a bit "out of the box". This care-giving studio runs on the principle of integrity, straight-forwardness, and articulate ways to communicate to many students of differing backgrounds and circumstances.


Fox Teaching Studio employs traditional teaching books, Suzuki materials, the latest fiddle, Celtic, and Irish music, position and various scale books, and treatises on playing by noted pedagogical giants historically. The student is free to learn Gospel, sacred, and hymn books in many different religious traditions.

Children have fun playing and performing their instrument as well as adults-young and mature do. Join us!
