I strongly believe in equipping students early on with the tools for self- sufficiency. I believe that the most effective teaching is one that helps the student learn to expand their awareness, ask questions, inquire, and problem- solve so that they themselves are the primary and drive of self-improvement.

Through effective sequencing of technical studies and repertoire I foster the ability in my students to pursue their musical aspirations. I strive to create a positive atmosphere and provide opportunities to empower students to reach the highest possible level on their instrument. Each student is an individual bringing a unique perspective and background to their musical studies. I desire to help each student discover and pursue a commitment to his or her own distinctive learning process and style. When teachers encourage the joy of learning and discovery in students plus confidence in their abilities it facilitates them in pursuing any career path they choose, especially music.

It’s incredibly important as a teacher to create a comfortable, engaging, and supportive atmosphere, as I believe that is where learning happens at its best.

I believe every student is capable of excelling artistically, technically and musically if they possess curiosity and discipline. My goal as a teacher is to foster this curiosity and discipline through making the student become aware of their mind, body and sound. Once a student can be aware of these interdependent elements, they start on the path to becoming their own teacher!

Music is a universal language, and I teach the violin through demonstrations and sequence-based learning with clarity, kindness, and joy. I maintain high standards of technique and musicality while emphasizing consistency, perseverance, and tone. I am originally Suzuki-trained, so I truly believe that everyone can learn to play an instrument beautifully. This foundational belief helped me earn my Master of Music in violin performance from the Royal Academy of Music in London. I look forward to working with you!
