Teaching since:

Hi, I am international soloist and pedagogue, soloist with orchestras such as the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, the Czech Philharmonic, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and winner of major and top prizes at numerous prestigious international violin competitions including the Concours Musical International Reine Elisabeth de Belgique (Brussels, Belgium), Concourse International de Montréal (Canada), Premio Paganini International Violin Competition (Genoa, Italy), and International Violin Competition of Indianapolis (USA). I love teaching all levels and all ages, and for whatever reasons they want to improve their violin playing
