Overview:
I've been playing violin for the past 13 years and have devoted my life to the amazing world of music!  In 2010 I began to study music education at the Unviersity of Redlands in southern california, and went on in 2012 to study Violin performance at California State University, Northridge. Now holding a bachelors of music in performance, I am currently pursuing a masters degree in Viola performance. Some of my greatest experiences as a musician have been on the road. In past four years I have spent over 12 months touring as a violinist and music director with the Celebrant Singers, performing in over 30 U.S. states and in the countries of Haiti, Colombia, Portugal, and France.   It is my passion to not only perform, but to teach, and to lead my students to find their own love for music along the way. 
EXPERIENCE
I began teaching in 2009 as a teachers assistant at an elemenatary school in my home town.  Ever since then I have been in love with education.  In some ways, the rewards of teaching can be even more so than that of performing. In 2010, I began to take in private violin students teaching at the Community School of Music and the Arts at the Unviersity of Redlands.  Soon after I joined the CSMA String Project, where I taught alongside an experienced credentialed teacher. Here I recieved training and critique on how to advance my skills as a music educator. Since my move to the Los Angeles area, I've had the pleasure of teaching in several schools as well as beginning to rebuild a private studio.   
METHODS USED
For my beginning violin studetns, I have a custom set of  books that I use in order to successfully set my students up with a solid foundation for technique and the ability to read notation.  For the intermediate student, we will focus on thoroughly learning msuic in the first three Suzuki method books.  Once the Suzuki method books are completed, we will begin our first sonanta and standard violin concerto.
LESSON STYLE
My teaching style varies depending on the students needs. I tend to lean more towards the encouraging side of things simply because in my experience, encouragement works!  I find that if I can get my students to develop a curiosity and passion for music, then they are more likely to be successful.  Each student learns a little bit differently.  It's my job to learn and adapt to the students strengths and weaknesses in order to best help their progression through violin/viola studies.
