Overview

I have been playing violin since almost as long as I can remember, training first under the Suzuki method and from a variety of teachers specializing in different styles, including classical, fiddling, and jazz improvisation. I have performed with a wide variety of bands and love exploring the versatility and diversity of violin music. I have taught for many years, using this skill to develop individualized curriculum to make music-making fun and inspiring for each unique learner, of any age.

Teaching Philosophy

I am driven to make music as a way to express my individual creative voice, and desire to pass that joy along to all my students. Violin playing requires hard work and discipline, but I do everything I can to make lessons fun and help you be patient with yourself, doing whatever it takes to help you reach your goals. I use a patient, student-honoring, fun style of teaching that nourishes and renews the natural creativity I believe is present in everyone, teaching improvisation and creativity from the beginning.
