Teaching Philosophy:

I enjoy helping my students take their love of music to the next level, where they can express themselves fully. In addition to learning how to play the violin, students in my studio develop strong abilities in other areas as well. They learn important life skills, such as how to focus and problem-solve, how to be flexible in their thinking, and how to balance their physical, intellectual, and emotional energies both on and off stage.

I am very grateful to have helped my students achieve their goals, whether by preparing for an audition, performance, competition, or working on a healthy practice technique. My overarching goal is to help students cultivate a curiosity and love of learning.

What life has shown me is that music is for everyone.  It can open up a world of appreciation, insight, and self-realization. The key to finding yourself in music is through music. Learning to play the violin is a journey that rewards students with confidence and memories of performances as a shared, generous, and joyful experience.
