Denice Carter


Denice Carter is trained and skilled at teaching Suzuki Violin. She offered a authentic and very successful program in Colorado for 22 years (DSS - and is now bringing her only capabilities to Portland! What makes Denice's program (CSVF- Carter Suzuki Violin & Fiddling) so unique is her added expertise in teaching and education of, fiddling. Denice has taken part in countless fiddle competitions and served as national and regional judge. She founded ,directed and served as President of, the Colorado Old time fiddle Association for the past 10 years.

Development of continuity between Suzuki classical music, and Texas Style contest fiddling, has been her focus for the past 22 years. Her methodology is based on Suzuki philosophies with added teaching points that include fiddling technique. Since both styles rely on keen development of the ear for intonation development, her melding of the two ideas is presented to the learner in a way that makes perfect sense. Note reading is introduced once mastery of basic technique is established. Classes are organized and structured to thoroughly cover all skills needed to become a well rounded and proficient musician. Practice direction is clearly delivered to each student weekly through her self developed "practice sheet system". Nurturing the spirit of the student so as to develop desire and enjoyment is her forte.

Students learn at their own pace and are welcome to start as early as age 3. Listening and parent involvement are key to success for children age 12 and under. Her Suzuki program offers all items and activities needed for students to discover their talents realize their full potential. Fiddle students are presented with chances that can propel their growth to height's they will value forever. Incorporating the two styles allows the student the choice to choose the musical direction they desire. Adult students enjoy the diversity and expert knowledge Denice brings to their lesson experience. CSVF is now scheduling new students.
