Welcome to Mrs. Eaken's String Instrument Site. I meet with Dillsburg students on Day 2, South Mountain students on Day 4, and Wellsville students on Day 5 in the A.M. Miss Durlin and I teach 4th and 5th graders how to play violin, viola or cello in the Northern York School District.
My goal is to teach students to play string instruments in the correct way and to enjoy it at the same time. At Northern, we require students to practice a minimum of 45 minutes a cycle, which still allows them time to do homework or other activities.
I've been teaching for "thirty some" years in several school districts in the area, including Dover and West Shore.
