Berit brings an unusual depth and set of skills to her teaching of the classical guitar at Indian Hill for the past 20 years. Having the great opportunity to study with some of America’s and Italy’s finest guitarists she custom-tailors her studio to offer age-appropriate materials and injury prevention techniques to this complex instrument. Advanced students, professionals, and other guitar teachers have consulted or studied privately with her, and some of her students have won competitions and have attended top notch conservatories. Berit’s most recent accomplishment was to become certified in the Suzuki Guitar Method for young children, studying up to Book 2 with the prominent Suzuki Teacher Trainer David Madsen. The response from children ages 5 and up and parents has been enthusiastic and committed.
