Aka CalViolinist, I'm a professional violin /viola teacher (Texas Music Educators Association member, Plano/Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD schools private violin/viola instructor,) and seasoned violinist who has won many awards and honors, including TEXAS ALL-STATE SYMPHONY CONCERTMASTER as a high school freshman! I was a 3-time UIL State Solo & Ensemble Outstanding Soloist. Also, I was Austin Symphony's Concerto Competition Winner and Soloist in their high school concerts at the age of 14. Featured as a TV/Radio soloist, I earned my Bachelor's and Master's in Violin Performance from Northwestern University and have performed with various symphony orchestras across the US, including San Diego, Charlotte, Virginia, Des Moines, Chicago, and Texas. I have years of experience teaching Suzuki to students of various age and levels (beginning, intermediate, or advanced).

I believe you can sing! Whether you’re a beginner wanting to find your voice, or a more experienced singer looking to further refine your natural talent, I’ll be there with you every step along the way.
I began singing in choirs in the third grade. In middle school, I had a very enthusiastic and supportive sixth grade choir teacher who encouraged me to see where music would take me. By 2000, I had also taken up the violin with a private teacher. I took my first private voice lesson in 2004, and began to benefit immensely from the personal attention and support that lessons provide.
I later studied at Texas Tech University, where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education. In my time at Tech, I was a member of the Symphony Orchestra, Women’s Chorus, University Choir, Madrigal Singers, Jazz Ensembles I/II, Lubbock Moonlight Musicals, and studied privately under several incredible faculty members. My favorite musical experience in college was singing with the University Choir at Carnegie Hall in May of 2010.
I continue to play violin and currently use my classical training to teach choir, voice, and mariachi violin at a public high school in the Dallas area. When I’m not teaching or performing, I enjoy practicing yoga, riding bikes, spending time with my fiancé, making jewelry, and learning Spanish.

To let you know a little about me, I began studying violin at the age of seven, progressing quickly through the Suzuki Method repertoire. I played with Shinichi Suzuki on a concert when he came to Knoxville, Tennessee to celebrate his birthday. I competed at state level, receiving no less than superior ratings and winning best violinist in the state of Tennessee. I went on to take from international professionals, Patricio and Jacinto Cobos of Chile; Alan Lieb, a protégé of Shinichi Suzuki, as he studied with him for years in Japan; the first chair violinist of the Memphis State Symphony, and Melvin Harrison of Texas Christian University.
Harrison encouraged me to become a teacher and I took a few courses at TCU in order to be certified as a Suzuki teacher in 1999.
I opened my home studio and by word of mouth, many schools in the Fort Worth area became interested in having me teach/coordinate violin programs for their fine arts programs. I taught for programs at All Saints Episcopal School, Fort Worth Country Day School, Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts, Texas Elementary School of the Arts, Saintsville Preparatory Academy as well as taught and coordinated the Suzuki Program for Youth Orchestra of Greater Fort Worth. Many of my students have gone on to play in youth orchestras, several placing first chair.
My background involves about thirty years of playing/studying violin, as well as playing in the orchestra at Baylor University and performing at Bass Hall, here in Fort Worth. I am currently recording with a local artist and the album will be available the first of January 2014.
I look forward to working with you.
