Being a young professional violinist and teacher, relatability and authenticity are key factors within my lessons. We are now living in a deeply globalized and modern world, therefore relationships with active and and ambitious musicians are necessary. The moment that one thinks they have learned "what it takes" is exactly when others are able to surpass them. Stemming from this mindset, I also continue my studies with some of the best violinists and other musicians that I have encountered from around the world. This demonstrates a principal of not only informed teaching, but also living the lifestyle that I preach every day.
For many years, I have been working closely with one of the most talented violinists of our generation, Cory Lee ( graduated - The Juilliard School & Yale School of Music ). Mr. Lee has performed as a violin soloist in Carnegie Hall on several occasions, is a member of the acclaimed New York City ensemble ETHEL, and founder of Liberated Performer; a game-changing teaching method on how to understand and overcome performance anxiety.
As a result, I have been invited to live and study in New York City and abroad over the past five years. While in NYC, I performed in many notable venues including The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Le Poisson Rouge. Afterwards, my development led me to Reykjavik, Iceland for an intense training period in violin and vocal performance. During this time, I was able to experience first hand exactly what it takes to invoke a career as a musician within some of the most challenging and rewarding musical environments.

I am actively employed as a violin teacher within one of the best music studios in central Ohio. During my time with GnG, I have received more & more students each month due to my unique and informed teaching style, as well as developing a personal and meaningful connection with each individual that I am lucky to work with.+ Read More
