StatementI have been teaching professionally for around 12 years. I welcome students of all levels. I make a special emphasis of performing and give all my students opportunities to play in frequent concerts, festivals, and events throughout the year, including two large-scale student violin recitals I host.

My education includes a Master's and Bachelor's degree in Violin Performance.
