Sharing the joy of music makes me happy. I consider myself lucky to be able share music with students of all ages.
Patient, creative, and custom. My teaching is based on you, how you learn, and what you are interested in. You will have input as soon as possible.
See what my students and their parents think about lessons with me.
“I love that you encourage me to try my best.” — R.S. (10 years old)
“She has loads of patience and is great at coming up with creative approaches to playing challenging pieces. Lessons are always a positive experience.” —D.M. (adult)
“I was grateful to have found Gretchen Miescke as a teacher for my four children after moving to California...having them all on different stringed instruments..” — E.M. (parent)
“Gretchen is a wonderful teacher for an adult getting back into playing after a lapse of years. She is able to evaluate your current skill level and help you advance. She recognizes that you are an adult and a unique individual and will work with you on the techniques you most need rather than stuff you into a box of pre-set lessons.” — B.P. (adult)
“Gretchen gave my family the gift of music.” — M.L. (parent)
“If not for you, I would have given up violin long before we moved.” — K.M. (college)
