I'm a career string quartet musician who loves both performing and teaching. I graduated with a Master of Music degree from McGill University in Viola Performance.

I've been lucky to have many amazing opportunities so far: I've performed in Carnegie Hall as a member of the New York String Orchestra Seminar; in Yokohama and Tokyo, Japan; and in Salzburg, Austria (the birthplace of Mozart!) as a member of the Milton String Quartet. I've also toured the USA and played in many parts of Canada. My favorite experience was winning the Fischoff Chamber Music Competition, the largest competition of its kind in North America!

My teaching experience is quite varied. I currently teach group classes to 3rd-5th graders here in NYC public schools. I've taught chamber music to teenagers in Indiana University's Summer String Academy and to adult learners in Montreal.

To me, music is about community, and getting to play great music with close friends or family is one of the most rewarding experiences.

I also tutor chess: I grew up playing the game and my parents ran a chess club at my elementary school in rural Maine. Chess was pure fun growing up but now I see how valuable of a tool it is for teaching logic, strategy and critical thinking! I won the U.S. Open unrated division at the age of 16 with a USCF rating of 1600 and have competed in a number of other tournaments.

Lesson Details

Viola

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

I've been teaching & performing for ten years as both a violinist and violist. I hold a Master's Degree from McGill University and my Bachelor's from Indiana University in Music. I'm also Grand Prize winner of the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, the largest competition of its kind in North America.

I love to teach and believe that there are many ways to learn, but that the best ways are always the ones which are most enjoyable!

I encourage my students to pursue their musical passions and to be open about what they want to learn and what motivates them to play their best. I love helping students of all levels achieve and exceed their goals!
