Hello! I'm from Austin, TX and I am currently working on my master's in viola performance at the DePaul University School of Music in Chicago. I completed my bachelor's in music at the University of TX, Butler School of Music. I have played the viola for thirteen years and have always been passionate about building a classical foundation in my playing alongside learning various styles of music. Having attended an arts high school in California, I have played in jazz bands and chamber pop ensembles including the Austin-based band 'Mother Falcon.' Since the age of nine, I have had many great opportunities to attended numerous music festivals across the states including Puerto Rico and abroad in Cambridge England. Along with finishing school, I am freelancing, teaching violin/viola at home and at an elementary school. I just completed my training to become a registered violin/viola Suzuki teacher. I am fairly new to Chicago and have already grown to love the vibrant artistic scene of this city. I love to teach and to share the joy of music!

I have been teaching since I was 17 years old, so this has become a passion very dear to me. I manage to engage and motivate my students in each lesson, by providing them with the guidance they need, and making it enjoyable and fun rather than tedious . Learning so much from great teachers have changed my life and approach to music, so I feel honored I can now do the same with my own students, encouraging them to improve and develop new skills that will take them to the next level in the process of learning.
