Teaching since:

My teaching experience includes 10 years of private teaching as well as several teaching posts with the Juilliard Pre-college program, Aspen Music Festival, and University of Colorado.

As a violinist, I've performed in various constellations in North America, Europe, and Asia as concertmaster of the Moritzburg Festival Orchestra in Germany, Pacific Music Festival in Japan, and the Sarasota Festival Orchestra. I hold a bachelor’s degree from The University of California, Santa Barbara and a master’s degree from the Juilliard School where I served as associate concertmaster of the Juilliard Orchestra. I was a founding member of the Ajax Quartet which up until recently served as the graduate string quartet in residence at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Locally, I regularly perform with Boulder Bach Festival and Boulder Chamber Orchestra and I'm also a substitute violinist with the New World Symphony in Miami!

I took Tom's violin lesson almost 6 years ago when I was visiting the US and trying to find a violin teacher during my staying. I was very lucky to meet Tom on craigslist. Tom is a very talented violinist, I always enjoyed his music when he demonstrated the phrase for me. He gave me many ideas about the music expression and many knowledge that I've never had before. He always encouraged me even if I knew I was not good enough. I still remembered the way he taught me to play the scales with metronome and remembered those fun moments working with him.
