I am a violinist from Rogers Park on the North side of Chicago. I studied violin performance and social justice at Oberlin College and Conservatory, and completed my masters degree in violin performance at DePaul University. I have been teaching violin for about 15 years now and absolutely love working with my students! I have experience teaching all ages, 3 to adult. I’ve completed a certificate in Music Education from DePaul University, and have taught orchestra in the public schools.

In addition to teaching I play baroque violin and maintain an active performance schedule with groups such as Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra, the Callipygian Players and other ensembles in the area.

Teaching is so rewarding- I love helping students achieve their goals! My teaching is a mix of Suzuki and traditional, depending on what is best for the student. I also teach fiddle, improv, and pop arrangements!

Besides performing and teaching violin, I am also very interested physical wellness and health, and have advanced yoga teacher training. My interest in healthy posture and alignment comes from my own journey to find a comfortable way to hold and play the violin. Physical alignment and comfort is a priority in my teaching. Movement practices I have studied include tai chi chuan, yoga, and Feldenkrais.

I teach private lessons at my home in Rogers Park and also in Hyde Park. To inquire about lessons email or give me a call!
