Violin Instructor: Keith Connor

Keith Connor Violin Instructor at Skip's Music


Classical, Celtic & American fiddle, Jazz, Rock, Pop


Keith was first taught to play the violin by his grandmother more than 30 years ago. He earned a Masters of Education from San Francisco State and has taught in the classroom – both middle and high school levels. He currently devotes all of his time to teaching his private music students.


Keith uses a combination of traditional methods (technique exercises, scales, note reading & classical repertoire) and Suzuki method techniques (playing by ear and memorization). He gives each student an individualized “curriculum” designed for their specific needs and musical goals.
