ONLINE | IN-PERSON LESSONS

Why do I teach?

I teach because I have personally experienced the lasting impact of music in my life. I am aware that my ability to play the violin and deep appreciation for music was nurtured by my own violin teachers.

I believe music has the ability to help people find greater meaning and purpose in life. Words cannot begin to describe the joy I find in working with students and helping them find their own unique voice on the violin, and finding ways to help them express themselves.
