After pursuing the violin for 22 years, I can’t imagine any job more fulfilling than passing on a love and understanding of this instrument to my students. I am a Suzuki certified instructor specializing in beginning student education for both children and adults. I whole-heartedly believe that anyone can learn with patience, a positive supportive environment, and a willingness to try. It is my personal goal to help push my students to grow more than they thought capable while fostering a love and joy for music. In my studio we never say “I can’t.” only “I can’t, yet.”

Having been trained in the Suzuki method myself since the age of six, I am a firm believer in its ability to create not only masterful musicians, but also people with the self-discipline and positive determination to accomplish anything they set their minds to. I studied violin under Janet DeTemple from 1996 – 2008, and viola periodically under Becky Miller & Ferenc Cseszko from 2006 – 2010. I also have performance experience as a solo artist and as a member of several orchestras, quartets, bands and pit orchestras in music ranging from Classical to Contemporary including sub genres of Fiddling, Celtic, Broadway Musical, Jazz Improvisation & Pop.
