I started music when I was very young, taking piano lessons with a lady that lived down the street from me. I switched to the violin to play with my middle school orchestra, and soon began private instruction in the Suzuki method. After achieving success in TMEA all-state and UIL solo end ensemble competitions, I began my higher education at the University of Texas, studying violin performance. I earned a bachelor's degree from UT and after a period freelancing, earned a scholarship and assistantship to attend the Master's program at Baylor University. I received my master's degree in violin performance in 2014. My teaching method is very methodical and encouraging. I try to use my extensive professional performance and audition experience to help my students achieve success at all levels of their development, from school orchestra performances to college auditions.
