I started playing the violin when I was 3.5 and the viola when I was 14 years old. I have been teaching both violin and viola for four years now and am excited to have new students! Last summer, I was selected to join the world-renowned National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America (NYO-USA), performing for audiences in Taipei, Shanghai, Beijing, Seoul, and Daejeon under the direction of the great Michael Tilson Thomas and piano soloist Jean-Yves Thibaudet. In high school, I was selected to join the National Association for Music Education's (NAfME's) All-National Honor Symphony Orchestra. I was also the principal violist for the Eastern Senior District Symphony Orchestra and the New England Conservatory Preparatory school’s Youth Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2017, I appeared on a Nike commercial featuring basketball star Kyrie Irving’s new line of basketball shoes. In 2018, I performed in a small chamber group on the National Basketball Association’s “Players Only” show, a live national television broadcast. After growing up in the Suzuki program beginning at the age of three-and-a-half years old, I spent every Saturday at the New England Conservatory’s Preparatory School from first grade until I graduated high school. No matter what age, I am ready to help you excel in your musical journey!

We are so grateful that our 4-year-old son Jeremy got to learn violin with Wilson! Jeremy had never played instrument before, he’s seen Wilson performed during worship and has been aspired to be like Wilson. Wilson is such a champ at creating bonding with his little student in no time, motivating them to learn with passion and practice with perseverance. With just eight lessons, Jeremy went from nothing to being able to perform his first piece “twinkle twinkle little star”. Wilson hand made him “Jeremy’s rhythm book” to teach him notes and beats; and “Jeremy’s practice chart” which makes Jeremy motivated to practice every day and proudly put a sticker on for the day. Wilson is such a good role model to our little boy, great personality and a joy to be with, his lesson is what Jeremy most looks forward to every week! We are so sad that we can’t continue with Wilson as he will be in Atlanta for school. However, lucky violin learners in Atlanta - we highly recommend Wilson, you’ll be very lucky to learn from him!

Wilson gets me to work hard, but with creativity and a sense of humor.
