Hello! I am a graduate of Eastman School of Music with a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance. I have experience teaching students of all ages, as well as coaching student chamber music. I enjoy all types of music and transcribe music as a hobby. I also play for weddings, concerts in nursing homes, and volunteered at student music camps. I love to help students with any problems they have, and look forward to hearing from you!

I'm an adult in my 40's and I have never played the violin. But, learning how to play the violin has been on my bucket list. I love playing the piano but there's something special about violin. I have a busy work schedule. And I wasn't sure if I could learn remotely. But, I've decided to give it a try. I've taken 4 lessons from Mark. Every week I showed him what I've practiced and asked some questions that I couldn't figure out from books. Mark also corrected my posture, arm mechanics, etc from the screen. So far, everything is great. What I like the most is that after each lesson, I have a clear practice goal. I'm very happy to have him as my teacher.
My 7 year old son and I take violin lessons with Mark both online and in-person. I returned to the violin after a 35 year hiatus and my goal was to play duets with my son. We are now doing just that under Mark’s guidance and instruction. I couldn’t be happier to have found Mark. He is excellent teacher, communicator and he has a wealth of knowledge. I am always learning something new and looking forward to our lessons every week!
Very helpful and pleasant to work with.
