I'm trained as a classical musician and write original compositions heard in film and television, most recently in Veronica Mars. I use the Suzuki Method and focus on playing by ear to allow you to develop great technique, intonation and enjoyment of playing music. We will later focus on music theory and sight reading after establishing a strong foundation.
I produce and record my own and others' music which can be heard extensively in film and TV, has been toured internationally, and received international press recognition. I play and teach several instruments and genres of music and take your tastes and learning style into utmost consideration. I always begin with practical exercises to develop technique, then we can focus on playing the music you love.
To vocal students I will teach exercises that develop technique and allows you to explore your voice. I will help you learn to make sounds you love.

I suggest viola to young students that already have violin experience, as well as to adults looking for a deeper sound at the early stages. Viola is my primary performance instrument.
Welcome! I am a violin and viola teacher from New York and a registered member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas. I am an active performer of contemporary and classical music, and my commitment is to instill my students with both a passion for playing music and an outstanding technical foundation.
My teaching method is tailored to each student's individual learning style and motivation for playing. The first question I will ask at every first lesson is: what music do you love? This can be one song - a nursery rhyme, classical melody, or popular song - or a genre of music. Regardless of age, I believe that the most effective path for learning violin or viola is to start with the music!
For younger children, I suggest beginning with the Suzuki method in order to ...
I began viola at age 11, and began teaching viola in my first year of study at music school.
My training in violin and viola comes from distinguished performers in the classical music community. I have studied with Nicholas Cords (of Brooklyn Rider), Lawrence Dutton (of the Emerson String Quartet), Karen Ritscher, Brett Deubner, and Nancy Buck. My teachers have been taught by some of the most eminent string pedagogues of their generation, including Dorothy Delay, Karen Tuttle, Lilian Fuchs, Harvey Shapiro, and Heidi Castleman. This broad survey of teaching styles and philosophies gives me a great breadth of knowledge which I apply to all of my students.
Whether it be beginners, who are just learning the basics of sound production and proper posture, or advanced students, who are preparing for solo competitions or orchestral and chamber performances, my students will feel empowered and strengthened by their studies with me.
I hold the same approach for all my students at ...

I aim to teach my students more than just the basics. My students should expect to master: how to play their instrument most efficiently, body awareness, relaxed and proper posture, musicality and thoughtful phrasing, some aspects of music theory and ear training, stage presence, and more.
Most importantly, I will help my students grow more confident in their musical abilities. My goal is to help nurture my students' ...
Lessons will be different depending on student's age, level, and interests. Materials used in lessons will include scales, technique book, as well as major pieces that the student will be working on.
