I have been making music my entire life. I began studying the violin at age 5 and the piano at age 6, and then when I was 8 started singing in school and church choirs. I received a music scholarship to high school which kept me busy accompanying people and participating in various instrumental and vocal groups. I began taking voice lessons as a freshman at New York University, and I'm now in year 8 of my vocal studies and year 21 of my piano-playing.
After graduating from school, I sang in several operas with the Amato Opera company in New York, and staged a recital here in Philadelphia at the First Unitarian Church in which I sang and also accompanied another singer. I have been a professional member of the Bach Choir of Pittsburgh and the Philadelphia Singers, and a volunteer member of Singing City.
I have maintained a small private studio since 2008, and have given vocal workshops at a handful of artists' retreats.
If you are a parent, you'll be happy to know that I also have lots of personal and professional experience with children, including working in pre-school and extended day settings, facilitating arts workshops given in Philadelphia public schools, and being the eldest of five children. Beyond all that, I genuinely love working with kids - so much joy, so much unfettered potential!
What I have to offer as a teacher are my compassion, my patience, my ability to listen, my knowledge of different musical styles, and my insistence on doing honest work and striving to give your best - and doing so in a way that is an inspiration rather than a drag. I love to help people discover great things about themselves, and I truly believe that music in general and vocal expression in particular are things that are available to everyone, no matter who has told you what in the past.
Apart from music making, I enjoy knitting, biking around Philadelphia, cooking, painting and drawing, and walking around in nature.
Bachelor of Music in Viola Performance from the University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ 2013
Masters of Music in Viola Performance in progress at Temple University, Philadelphia, PA 2015
I began my music studies on the violin around the age of 7, studied for 10 years and then fell in love with viola in high school. I've been around the world performing--most recently traveling to the Isle of Man for the Lionel Tertis International Viola Competition as a finalist to compete in the 2013 competition (this is one of the two international competitions in the world for viola!) Music has brought me to China four times--for study as well as performance. Last summer, music brought me to a festival in Italy and it was so beautiful! I frequently serve as principle violist in the various orchestras that I play with and before moving to Philadelphia this summer, I performed regularly in a string quartet. At 18, I performed William Walton's Viola Concerto with orchestra as a freshman in my my undergrad.
I have a lot of experience to draw on! I've been teaching privately since 2004 and I love to work with anyone who wants to learn. My lessons will revolve around you and what you want to achieve; they will be fun as well as challenging--but you can do it! With a little practice, you'll be playing beautifully and confidently in no time. If you are a beginner and have never played, or if you can play already and just want to be better, look no further! I am so excited to work with you and get you playing your best!

Violin, Music Performance, Fiddle
I began violin lessons at age five, and was requested by the youth conductor to join the Palm Beach Youth Symphony a year later. For eight consecutive years, I performed with many other youth orchestras and served as concert mistress several times. At the age of thirteen, I auditioned for and joined The Venice Symphony during the 2004-2005 season and was a part of their ensemble for seven consecutive seasons, including the position as assistant principal. In addition to the Venice Symphony, I have also performed with the Sarasota Pops for two seasons, The South Shore Symphony Orchestra as assistant concert mistress and as concert mistress, and Anna Maria Island Concert Chorus and Orchestra. Recently, I relocated to the South Philly and am now performing with the Delaware County Symphony in Aston, PA, and the Rose Tree Pops located in Media, PA. Over the years I have had performing experience with violin duets and trios with a classical guitarist on a number of occasions for weddings, Christmas shows, and restaurant events. Some of my performance venues include the 800 Bay Restaurant and Club, the Four Seasons, the Sugarhouse Casino, and the Pyramid Club.
In addition to my musical career, I am also heavily training in the sport of ice dancing. Currently, my brother and ice dance partner, Stephen, and I are competing in the top level with goals to compete nationally and internationally. Through my experience as a performer both in music and on the ice, I can give to each student not only the ability to create music through the violin, but also the mental ability to handle performing and competitive atmospheres.
