I love playing violin. I've been studying since the age of 5. I was very involved throughout middle school and high school with an intense pre-college program at Indiana University. We had music theory, master classes, chamber music, performances, and multiple lessons a week. It was during this time that I really knew that I wanted to major in violin performance, and had realized that music was a vital part of my life! By being a part of that pre-college program, I was given opportunities such as traveling the world with our group and doing concert tours, and playing with different professional artists, and orchestras. I was also involved in a youth orchestra until I graduated highschool. I attended Indiana University majoring in Violin performance. I hold a Bachelors and a Masters degree. I have also had a little bit of training on the viola, and in music theory. I completed every pedagogy teaching class that was offered at IU and was fortunate to have a lot of experience teaching. I am now a violinist in the Colorado Symphony and I am loving it! I believe music is a very important factor in a well rounded education, and I hope that I am able to teach you to love and respect music and to enjoy the incredible journey of learning!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very friendly person, and love getting to know my students but I also maintain a strict teacher/student relationship with my students. I'm very patient, and I think the more questions that are asked, the better! I think that everyone learns and relates in a different way, so I work with my students individually and discover their strengths, and weakness, and I work to build a curriculum based on their needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
private room w/ music stands and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
A stand

*** Specialties ***
I am a firm believer in the importance of scales and etudes, and after a firm foundation of technique is set in place, the music usually just falls into place.
