Teaching since:

I am a professional violinist in NYC, with degrees from Juilliard (M.M. and D.M.A. in Violin Performance) and Harvard (B.A. in Music). Among my teachers are Joseph Lin and Ronald Copes of the Juilliard String Quartet, Lynn Chang (Boston Conservatory), and Robin Sharp (Stanford University). Outside of my studio, I teach at Juilliard in the Music Advancement Program, and at the Interlochen Arts Camp.

My performance experiences range from solo (performances with the Sendai Philharmonic, Sapporo Symphony Orchestra, and AXIOM Ensemble, among others) to orchestral (Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, New World Symphony, Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, and more) to even popular music (Stars of the Lid tour and Cheryl B. Engelhardt's CD One Up)! I am constantly evaluating my own musicality and the physical mechanics of how I play, and I apply this to my teaching of students of all levels.

Momenta Quartet

Momenta: the plural of momentum – four individuals in motion towards a common goal. This is the idea behind the Momenta Quartet, whose eclectic vision encompasses contemporary music of all aesthetic backgrounds alongside great music from the recent and distant past.  The New York City-based quartet has premiered over 100 works, collaborated with over 120 living composers and was praised by The New York Times for its “diligence, curiosity and excellence.” In the words of The New Yorker’s Alex Ross, “few American players assume Haydn’s idiom with such ease.”
