Concert violinist and violist offering private and group lessons to all ages

Methodology

I focus a lot on technique and note reading. I am not a Suzuki certified teacher. I insist that all my students read music. My methodology is focused on positive learning and growth. I have a Master's degree in violin performance and regularly perform around the country giving master classes.

Background

I am a professional violinist and violist active in the Los Angeles area. I am in the recording industry as well as in the professional orchestra scene. I have been teaching privately since 1991 and hold advanced degrees in music.
