- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I also welcome adult students, beginners and amateur enthusiasts alike.
In addition to gaining expertise in the techniques in violin playing, students in my studio will be given opportunities to gain comprehensive music knowledge including theory, sight singing, ear training, and any relevant music history, as the above-mentioned knowledge are indispensable elements in violin playing. Singing and clapping are essential parts of the lesson. When students are equipped with the basics, they can play anything and make the music they want.

- Teaching since:
I have been a professional violin performer and teacher for over 15 years. I am the winner of the 2011 Central Washington University Symphony Orchestra Concerto Competition. I have previously served as the concertmaster at The Hartt Symphony Orchestra.
During my time at The Hartt School, from which I earned Master of Music and Graduate Professional Diploma, I was appointed as the violin technique class instructor at The Hartt School, teaching undergraduate violin major students.
In addition to working as a violin instructor at local private schools, I also teach privately at students' homes. I am requested to substitute for faculty at The Hartt School Community Division time to time, filling in to teach violin and coach chamber music groups.
My goals as a teacher are:
1. To work to build a sound foundation in technique to provide students with a solid base upon which to grow their musicality.
2. Promote and nurture students' interest in music by identifying their passion and strengths in violin playing.
3. Provide students with opportunities to perform to and work to help them find confidence in their playing.
