I teach violists from beginner to college level performers.
I have a passion for music and people. Those two things together make lessons a fantastic outlet for both me and the student. I cater to each student's specific needs based on personality, age, ability, and mood. I have been teaching for over 10 years, and have completed both a Bachelors and Masters degree in Violin Performance from St. Olaf College and The Boston Conservatory. I am an active performer in the Boston area, and am always looking for new and interesting projects. I am a strong promoter of music being written by living composers, which is where a lot of my performing happens. A typical lesson starts with some fundamental work, whether it's open strings, scales or whatever. There is always a way to warm up - playing violin is an athletic skill, in my opinion. After that,
Welcome! I teach violists of all ages in my private studio in Cambridge. My approach is flexible and depends on a student's goals, whether just getting started, switching from the violin, picking up the viola after a break, preparing for auditions, or trying to master a difficult concerto.

I hold a Massachusetts Department of Education Music certification. I speak English, Spanish and Portuguese.
I have been a private violin and viola Suzuki teacher for the past three years, while studying at the Boston Conservatory. I teach mostly beginner students from the ages of six to twelve- the reason I choose to work specifically with children of this age group is that I strongly value and encourage beginners to grow and learn with the necessary tools needed to further develop and work on later in life. I teach the Suzuki method, which in short is the philosophy that all people are capable of learning from their environment, whether they are gifted or work hard and are eager to learn.
