Miss Schreiner is an advocate that anyone can learn to play the violin. She teaches from the Suzuki violin ideal, always working to teach how her students learn best, and making learning fun. She looks to not just teach her students how to play the violin, but to learn, through music, the skills needed to be successful in any aspect of life. She makes sure to include general music, singing, and theory into her lessons. Miss Schreiner believes that a strong musical foundation is important for mastering any instrument.
