Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
My goal is to help you progress in your studies of the Viola. I do not expect to have any studio recitals, but I would love to help prepare you for any performances, orchestral or solo, that you have coming up. I am open to your repertoire choices if you have something you are itching to play (I know I have my own bucket list). If needed, I can also make suggestions for repertoire based on your current skill level. As for my history and aspirations for the Viola; I have been studying with Dr. Mark Neumann for four years. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Viola Performance from the University of Oklahoma in 2017, and am currently working towards my Masters Degree in Viola Performance at the University of Oklahoma. I hope to receive my Doctor of Musical Arts in the future.

Teaching since:

I am currently a Master's Student at the University of Oklahoma. I received my Bachelor's Degree in May of 2017 from the University of Oklahoma. I began my studies of the Viola at age 11, when I started in the public school's orchestra program. From there I continued playing the viola in various orchestras, youth orchestras, and honors orchestras in the Oklahoma City area. From Fall 2013 through Spring 2015, I served as the Violist for OU's Undergraduate Honors String Quartet, studying under Dr. Jon Ruck, Dr. Gregory Lee, and Dr. Mark Neumann. I specialize in Solo works, as well as chamber and orchestral works. I look forward to working with you!
