I have taught beginning violin for 9 years. I have played violin for 19 years and have played in professional string quartets, the Philadelphia band Mechanical Minds, and for various recording projects, including Grammy award winning Arrested Development's latest album. I mainly use the Suzuki method in instruction but also incorporate note reading and musical skills. For novice violinists, I focus primarily on proper technique, as I believe it is imperative to have a great foundation.

I have performed in a large variety of vocal genres from rock to opera and am comfortable teaching all ages, levels, and styles. In my lessons I focus on proper breath support, and vocal placement within the mouth and nasal cavity. As a result of my classical training, my basic style of teaching is steeped in the bel canto aesthetic. However, I believe in and use kinesthetic techniques to help students more easily discover this proper approach.
I've been in and around music all my life. I started violin at age 5, part of the first generation of Suzuki violinists in the United States. I've loved being a professional violinist and violin teacher for over 30 years! And I've also founded and directed three community music schools in Newburyport, Boston, and Manhattan.
I hold Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Violin Performance, and I'm lucky to have had wonderful experiences during my formal training! In my undergraduate years, I was awarded a full 4-year scholarship for string quartet and chamber music playing, which was invaluable as a real-world training. In graduate school, I was fortunate to learn so much as a Teaching Assistant for undergraduate violin students.

Music should be a fun and rewarding activity for all ages to enjoy. In my studio the student will get personal and individualized attention where they can learn in a manner that best suits them.

While my training is in classical voice and opera, I am also comfortable teaching musical theater, light jazz, and popular music.
