Viola, Violin, Cello, Piano
Taylor started playing the violin and cello at the age of ten. She has performed in a wide range of ensembles such as chamber orchestras, string quartets, musicals and local pop. While in high school, she was a part of the school’s marching band, playing in the drumline and marching with the mellophone.
Her passions of music lead her to have her first violin student at the age of 18 and since then she has been teaching students from 5 years and up. She believes a solid foundation is very important in learning a new skill and that no two individuals learn the same way. Her classes are always fun while delivering everlasting results. Currently Ms Cooksey is completing a Bachelor's Degree double majoring in viola performance and music education at California State University, Long Beach.

Message To You: Music is a powerful medium for creative expression and personal enrichment. Music, both for the performer and the listener, helps us to see the world in a different, more original light, and gives us a healthy and beautiful emotional outlet. I want to help my students reach their highest potential in music, and even though it takes a lot of hard work and dedication, I want my students to learn and to always remember how wonderful and fascinating it truly is to have music in their life.
