Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I'm a graduate student at the Juilliard School and I specialize in helping beginner, intermediate, and advanced players develop great ears, good hand-eye coordination, and (if you need it) learning how to read music! I've taught over a dozen students ranging in age from 7 to 50, both in violin and viola!

I use the Karl Flesch and Galamian Scales systems to help you build better intonation, and I'm very flexible in teaching repertoire!
