I offer beginner to advanced violin lessons for all ages. I have gotten to perform in many different ensembles and styles. This allows me to adapt to students' interests. Having taught privately for over a decade now (has it really been that long?), I have developed many ways of explaining specific concepts since one student may understand it perfectly if explained differently than how another student grasped it. Teaching violin is one of my greatest loves because I get to constantly see students fall in love with music and violin.
I was the violin instructor for the youth orchestra program for El Sistema Korea. It was a lot of fun getting to teach so many talented players on an individual basis and as a section. Watching the development and joy of my students as they had their "light bulb" moments was definitely the highlight.Show More
I played violin for piano students and coached several of the chamber ensembles. This was a blast since it was some of the first exposure to chamber music for these kids and it's always a lot of fun figuring out how there is not a whole section around you (more accountability and more freedom).Show More
