Hi. My name is Cynthia Wiley and I am a violinist and violin teacher. When I first went to Southern Methodist University to study Violin Performance, I didnít know that a love of teaching was sure to follow. I began teaching privately to help pay for expenses while in college. I taught in different venues: classroom teaching, college teaching, and private teaching. I found that I enjoyed private teaching the most. As my studio of students began to grow, I realized my passion is teaching!
What do I love about teaching? The students . . . They each are so unique and fun. Part of what I love about teaching is that it is never the same. Yes, the basics of the violin are the same, but the students are not. I realized early on that what works for one student, may not work for another. I work very hard to determine and connect with each studentís learning style so they can achieve each technique or musical idea.
I have had great success working with students of all ages, ranging from age three to adults. I believe my past students have felt like we were a team working together, not just a teacher who says, "yes, no, yes, no" and never connects with the student. I want every student to know that I care about them not only as a student, but also as a person. I absolutely LOVE teaching violin.
My desire for each student is to encourage and expand their love of music and the violin.
Mrs. Cynthia Wiley
