My goal in teaching your child to play the violin is to nurture a life-long passion for playing music. I began studying the violin at the age of 9 and have been performing in orchestras and small groups ever since.

I was actively involved in music throughout my college years. I continued my violin studies with Marcia Henry and Walter Olivares and was an active member of the Glacier Symphony Orchestra, the Missoula Symphony and the University of Montana student orchestra. For the past 30 years, I have been a first violinist with the Jefferson Symphony Orchestra (JSO). In addition, I have enjoyed playing in a contemporary Christian band for over 12 years.

I have completed a Suzuki Violin Pedagogy Certificate with registered training in Suzuki violin books 1-8 at the University of Denver Lamont School of Music studying with Kathleen Spring. I have also completed registered training in Suzuki books 9-10. I am a faculty member with Boulder Suzuki Strings and offer private lessons in the comfort of my in-home studio. In addition to playing the violin, I am also a Certified Professional Photographer and am mom to two Suzuki-trained violinists.
