I am certified in the Suzuki Violin Method through the Suzuki Association of the Americas. I have a BM and MM in Violin and Viola performance from the University of Denver where I studied with Yumi Hwang-Williams and Basil Vendryes. I received my training and certification in Suzuki Pedagogy with James Maurer and Kathleen Spring. I love playing orchestral music and currently perform with groups such as the Colorado Symphony Orchestra and the Colorado Springs Philharmonic.

I believe that learning an instrument should be fun and engaging for the student! I work with each individual’s learning style and strive to keep lessons enjoyable and challenging. I believe that every child has the capacity to learn an instrument well.​

It is important to me to teach young people to serve their community at a young age. My students perform in community outreach concerts each year in an effort to bring the beauty and joy of music to others.

Mission Statement:
Teaching young people focus, determination, discipline, community outreach, respect for others, and love of music through learning to play the violin and viola well and to the best of each student’s ability.
