- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+
- Teaching since:
I am a professional violinist and pianist. I graduated from Southeast Missouri State University with a Bachelors of Music, emphasis on the violin.
I have performed with several professional groups. Some of them include the Salem - St. Louis Chamber Orchestra, the St. Louis Big Band and the Southern Illinois Symphony Orchestra. I’ve also performed with smaller jazz ensembles and folk groups.
I have 10 years of teaching experience and have always enjoyed helping my students further and their skills. Students can expect improvement from week to week with regular lessons and practice. I am confident that, no matter what your age or skill level, I can help you improve your musical abilities as well as have a better grasp on music theory and the function of music.
I believe it is important for my students to have a classically based foundation but that doesn’t keep me (or my students) from branching out into other genres such as rock, pop, jazz and bluegrass.
I hold lessons at my apartment which is conveniently located above a coffee shop. Grab a coffee before your lesson!
Hope to hear from you soon!
