I began my collegiate education in the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music studying under the internationally acclaimed violinist Piotr Milewski and Ariel String quartet. Later on studying under Evgeny Zvonnikov and the St. Petersburg String Quartet. While there, served as a section leader under the baton of Mark Gibson during the Beethoven and Mahler Festivals. Additionally, I was section leader in the suprima chamber orchestra which had seen concerts throughout the US and Russia. Premiered chamber/orchestral works by contemporary composers, and participated as a section violinist of the Queen City Opera.
Afterwards, I pursued my Master of Music in violin performance. I was a graduate assistant under stipend and full scholarship at the Texas Christian University, studying under the tutelage of Dr. Misha Galaganov. As a graduate assistant, I worked directly for Dr. Galaganov teaching violin lessons to students who were studying music as a minor. As I would teach these lessons, my professor would give me feedback on the progress of my students. During this time I also had the pleasure of playing in the Odysseus North Texas chamber Orchestra which one third place in the orchestral division of the national "American Prize" competition.
