Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

I believe that anyone has an innate musical ability. I have over 10 years of teaching experience and the most valuable lesson I have learned is adaptability. Lessons cannot be given in a cookie cutter form, they must be shaped to fit the individual.

Teaching since:

I have been playing the violin for 24 years and have been teaching for 12. I received my Bachelor's at Mason Gross School of the Arts and am beginning my Master's in the fall. I am happy to work with students of all ages and levels. I find teaching to be an extremely rewarding experience and hope to extend my love and appreciation for music to my students. I believe that music should be accessible to all people and that everyone has an innate musical ability. My goal is to spread music to as many people as possible whether it be through performing or teaching. Although I use mostly the same books for my lessons, I adapt my teaching style to fit the student. Beginning by cultivating the students’ love and patience for music practice, we work on the foundation that will develop a strong technique. A well-developed technique allows a player to communicate the emotion that they desire through his or her instrument. Together, we learn the skill of efficiency and develop the tools needed for self-practice.
