I was trained by some of the great masters including renowned pedagogue Aaron Rosand and follow their approach to playing... down to how to hold a bow and violin. For beginners, I use the Suzuki book as well as other resources I have found helpful over the years.

Katherine is a very thoughtful teacher who puts a tremendous amount of energy into all of her students, giving them the best possible experience learning violin. I have worked with Katherine for many years and have seen how fast her students progress as well as develop a love for their instrument. I can’t recommend her enough!
Katherine has been teaching my son the violin for over 2 years. She has been patient and kind to him and does not give up on him even when he hasn't practiced in weeks. Her rates are reasonable and fair, and she often stays later than promised. We know we can trust her with our son and in our home. She has become a friend to our whole family
