I have experience teaching Pre-K through the Collegiate level - please contact TakeLessons with any questions about my teaching philosophy and reserve your spot before it is filled!
My passions include collaborating with new musicians, playing music of all genres, working with composers on contemporary compositions, and traveling the country and world to play concerts!
I graduated from the Eastman School of Music with academic Distinction and a degree in Violin Performance. I have performed in the United States, Austria, Germany, the Czech Republic, Mexico and been part of broadcasted performances on radio WRUR 88.5 and CBS Broadcasting.
*** Lesson Details ***
My commitments as a teacher are to have my students play with solid technique, natural and healthy posture, relaxed and tensionless movements, and with musical integrity. Lessons are split into three parts: scales, etudes, and solo repertoire. For my very youngest students I teach rhythms, note names, and reading music through games and songs.
My continuous goals as a teacher are to constantly be striving to understand how each child learns best and to foster a lifetime love for both the violin and classical music. I teach each student as an individual and tailor lessons to their unique goals and weekly progress on the instrument. I also teach my students to become skilled sight-readers.
Serious students only. I expect my beginners to practice 15 minutes every day. I teach beginners to very experienced students, ages 5-Adult.
