ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:
BA, Kutztown Univeristy, Music (General)
Overview:
I am a devoted and yearning music lover through and through! My parents brought me up that way as Broadway singers and dancers when I was born in Manhattan and it eventually spiraled me into a passion for performing, teaching and especially, listening to everything I could get my hands (and ears) on. I’ve been playing stringed instruments predominantly since I was 10 years old and went on to study Music Education at Kutztown University, where I played with the KU Orchestra and acted as principle chair for the 2nd violin section. I am now living in Philadelphia pursuing a teaching career and keeping busy by performing with many friends and peers in my community.
EXPERIENCE
I have been a Co-Teacher and Student Teacher numerous times over my years at Kutztown and have privately taught close friends for the past 3+ years. I am very well versed in music theory and use it heavily in my lessons.
METHODS USED
I’ve noticed the Suzuki Method books for Violin/ Viola are still a classic; and for good reason- so I enjoy using those for my lessons. They continue to motivate the student by having goal-oriented exercises and I reflect that in my lessons. I also like to put EXTREME emphasis on LISTENING during my lessons, in which the Progressive Duets Series (by Carl Fischer) and Beautiful Music for Two Violins (by Samuel-Applebaum) helps immensely with encouragement and confidence in their playing. For guitar, I use The Modern Method for Guitar Series (by William Leavitt of Berklee) combined with my own improvisational education methods.
LESSON STYLE
I strive to eventually surpass the theory and the muscle memory and teach the student how to connect. In reality, much of the sound a student produces is the result of their imagination, so I believe it is vital for them to keep motivated and find their own performance inspiring. A good teacher has the ability to “fire up” a student so they are motivated to improve and learn, and that is just what I do.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
