Lessons in classical violin by a classically trained violinist. I spend my days working at The Recording Academy managing artist and industry relations and play professionally at night. Previously, I worked at Carnegie Hall developing online music learning resources for young musicians. I teach all experience levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced.

I attended Hunter College - CUNY where my degree is in Music Education. I pursued post-graduate work as a DeHann Fellowship recipient at Indiana University - Jacobs School of Music where I studied with Henryk Kowalski, Mimi Zweig and Federico Agostini, and focused specifically on String Pedagogy and Violin Performance. I have continued to pursue courses in string instruction, most recently in the Irish fiddling tradition.

My role as a teacher is to provide support, encouragement, and awareness in each students musicality and creativity. Through my teaching, I want to lead each student to be the best they can be as a musician. Through classical training, I provide students with a solid technical foundation with intonation, sight-reading, and musical phrasing to create a canvas for them to explore music in different ways – improvisation, musical genres, different styles of playing, etc. From a violin technique standpoint, I observe each student’s temperament, quality of tone, bow arm, left hand technique, and general playing style, and find what can be improved upon. At the end of the day, I want each one of my student’s to have developed a healthy sense of musical self-esteem, and ignite their passionate interest in creating music.
