Hello! I'm a Bay Area violinist offering in-studio lessons to students of all ages and abilities. I love helping students grow as musicians and reach their goals.
I studied violin at San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where I received my masters degree in music. My understanding of the violin makes lesson time a unique experience tailored to every student. As a professional musician, I also perform classical chamber music and orchestral works as well as improvised music with bands of all shapes and sizes.
During lesson time, students can expect to learn the fundamentals of violin technique, listening, phrasing, and music theory. I create a comfortable environment where students are both challenged and encouraged to do their best.
I teach Suzuki violin at my private studio in Palo Alto, CA.
I teach beginning violin to students of all ages!
I studied the fundamentals of string pedagogy while teaching adult beginners.
I studied the Suzuki teaching philosophy with Allen Lieb. I believe that every child can learn to play the violin!
