Teaching Statement:
I tailor my lessons to each student’s needs and interests while providing a structured format which includes covering the basic foundation skills needed for playing the viola or violin. I have helped many students to prepare for successful auditions as well as teaching adult students who are beginning or continuing their music study. My goal is to help every student enjoy their musical experience no matter what their level or aspirations.
