Growing up, my music education was strict and difficult. I try to do just the opposite to accomplish a love and appreciation for music within students. I'm very open to what the student wants to do. I include listening to classics, watching musicals, reading material, theory and whatever else interests the student to progress his knowledge.

Kaleigh is a violinist, violist, and teacher living in the Boston area. She is currently pursuing a Masters of Music degree at Longy School of Music, where she formerly earned an Undergraduate Diploma. At Longy, she has received both the Margaret Rohde Award for Excellence in Solfege and Theoretical Studies, and the Roman Totenberg Award for Highest Academic and Artistic Achievement. She has performed internationally in such cities as Berlin, Prague, and Warsaw, and made her radio debut on WQXR's McGraw Hill Financial Young Artist Showcase in March 2014 playing Schoenfield's Souvenirs for Violin and Piano. An avid chamber musician, Kaleigh has spent her summers attending Bowdoin International Music Festival, Kent/Blossom Music, the Garth Newel Chamber Music Fellowship Program, Lyricafest, Charles Castleman's Quartet Program, Chamber Music in Grantham, and the Portland String Quartet Workshop.

In her teaching, Kaleigh focuses on helping her students actively develop their tactile, kinesthetic, and spatial knowledge of the instrument and motions involved in playing. She believes that, in close conjunction with aural awareness, a discerning physical awareness will eventually help students to self-diagnose problems and become their own best teachers. Kaleigh has been teaching assistant to her own esteemed instructor, Laura Bossert, since 2012. She has also been on the Young Artist Faculty of Lyricafest Chamber Music Festival in Lincoln, MA; held a Teaching Fellowship position at the New England Chamber Music Festival in Montpelier, Vermont; and participated as a teaching assistant in Bridge Boston Charter School's El Sistema-modeled Violin Program in Dorchester, MA.
