ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

Bachelor Degree: Northwestern University

Overview:

I started playing violin at the age of nine through my elementary school’s string program. In addition to performing with the Discovery Middle School and Timber Creek High School orchestras, I participated every year in the all-county and all-state orchestras and served as associate concertmaster of the Florida Symphony Youth Orchestra. I completed a double major in general music and engineering at Northwestern University in Chicago.

I have professional performance experience playing violin in orchestras, as a pit musician for musical theater and for freelance gigs such as weddings.

EXPERIENCE

After college, where I acquired extensive experience as a performer, I decided to dive into teaching. I am a fairly new teacher (six months experience), and it has been quite exciting to formalize my methods as I find the style that best suits me and my students. What I have learned most in my time teaching is the importance of games, challenges, and performance opportunities to keep learning fun and to motivate students to strive for that next level. I am also a lover of modern composers, and am experimenting with incorporating them into my teaching as well!

METHODS USED

My methods fall into 4 categories:

1) Essential Technique- Students will learn the basics from the Essential Elements books, Etude books such as Wolfahrt and Dont, and customized materials

2) Music Theory and History- Students will learn note reading, key signatures, scales and arpeggios, intervals, rhythm and music history through customized materials and games

3) Solo- Students will choose solos from the Suzuki violin/viola series, or another skill-appropriate solo

4) Ensemble- Once the student has basic familiarity with his or her instrument, I will find them an appropriate ensemble opportunity such as youth orchestra, All-County/All-State Orchestra, adult community orchestra or chamber music

LESSON STYLE

I am extremely flexible as a teacher. For every skill, there are a multitude of ways to learn that skill. There is no need to slug away for months at a solo or exercise that doesn’t match your personal interests or learning style. Playing should be stimulating and fun, and I am passionate about finding different ways to make learning music appealing to all sorts of people, whatever your musical needs are. However long your musical journey is, I am committed to making sure you leave with an appreciation of the richness of the classical music tradition, including classical music of the 20th and 21st centuries, and transferable skills such as analytical skills and discipline.

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.
