- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+
- Teaching since:
For over 10 years, I've taught violin to hundreds of students of all ages and levels, many from their very first notes on the instrument. Lessons are always engaging and inspiring! I'm here to help, so wherever you want to go in your musical journey, I want to help you get there.
Besides being passionate about teaching, I'm a professional touring and recording violinist. I'm proud to say that my students have won top awards (Topanga Fiddle Competition, Royal Conservatory Music Development Program) and placed in some of the top youth orchestras in the country. I maintained a studio of 20-30 students for many years in Los Angeles at the SOL-LA Music Academy, before recently moving to Chicago.
