Welcome to the private studio of Ariana Straznicky-Packer, professional violinist and music teacher. Since 2007, Ariana has created a warm, upbeat, and positive environment for students of all ages to learn music.
Offering violin, viola, and piano lessons, Ariana's students take weekly private lessons and participate in a variety of musical activities and performances throughout the year, including solo recitals and community performances. Between performances, students' experience is enriched with special workshops and motivational challenges, like the 100 Day Practice Challenge, where - you guessed it - they take on the great challenge of practicing for 100 days in a row!
Students receive a wide variety of resources to enhance their musical experience and can even take virtual lessons from the comfort and of their own home.
Ariana is trained in from three different pedagogical styles and customizes to fit your child's musical goals: Kaleidoscopes Method, Suzuki Method and traditional. Learn more here.
