Born into a musical family, I found a violin in my hands at age 4. Music is my true passion, and yet it is nothing unless I can share my craft with others. I am offering private violin lessons in the city of Orange. Whether you are seeking a music career or simply want to experience the benefits of what music can provide - which there are many - I am here to assist in your musical journey. All ages are welcome as well as all experience levels. With a commitment to learn, and discipline to practice, one can expect to develop a general fluency of the instrument within 3 to 6 months. The fundamental elements required to succeed on the violin are transferable and beneficial to all endeavors and pursuits.
I have a formal education in violin performance and am actively participating in performance engagements locally and abroad. As a freelance performer I have experience playing in various ensembles, venues, and genres~ from classical music to rock bands. I recently toured China with the Camerata Philadelphia as assistant concertmaster. I currently hold the Principal Second chair for the Dana Point Symphony Orchestra. My experiences as a professional musician are an asset to guide students on there discovery of a wonderful instrument, the violin.
The violin is my specialty. I am classically trained but am not limited to classical music. I have experience in orchestral playing, chamber music, as well as rock bands. Solid fundamentals will insure success in any genre that may come.
