Teaching philosophy is to utilize a friendly student-centered style, tailoring lessons to the individual’s needs and goals. Classical and Suzuki teaching methods are utilized to optimize each student’s program of study.

Lea specializes in teaching children in elementary, middle and secondary schools and has a proven track record in preparing students for Recitals, Orchestra auditions and School Concerts.

Adults without a background in music as well as experienced players have enjoyed as well as benefited from violin lessons at Fourelle Music Studio and have successfully achieved their individual goals.


  • Suzuki and Classical violin programs are integrated for optimum learning
  • Standard Etudes and Scale Study programs
  • Basic Music Theory
  • Standard solo repertoire is incorporated at each level of progress
  • Spring Student Recital offers each student the opportunity to perform before other students, families and friends.


I recommend a full hour lesson for students from age 8 and up. For younger students a 45 minute may be preferable, depending on the child. For more information, please contact me by email at or call me at 973-337-0585.
