Hello! I'm Mo! I love teaching violin and I try to make each lesson new and unique so that you are looking forward to the next one. There are so many aspects about playing violin that I like to talk about, show, and use examples from everyday life, such as finding rhythm in household appliances to finding pitch and harmony in birds.

I also like to prepare duets to play with my students, have some classical music listening sessions and to always bring students closer to the mentality of a performer while reminding my students what music means to everyone and why we play music.
