ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:
MM, Manhattan School of Music, Viola Performance  BA, Rutgers University, Economics and Composition
Overview:
I am a Suzuki-registered violin/viola teacher and an active performer of classical and contemporary music in New York City. My commitment is to instill my students with both a passion for playing music and an outstanding technical foundation.  
EXPERIENCE
I have mentored young violinists and coached chamber music ensembles since 2006. For the past three years, I have taught in-home private lessons, with ages ranging from 3 to 60. I teach violin and viola at the Third Street Music School Settlement, and in the spring of 2014 was the violin instructor at P.S. 278 in Inwood.
METHODS USED
When working with younger children, I typically begin with the Suzuki method in order to establish strong musical and technical fundamentals. The Suzuki curriculum is also popular across many music programs in New York, so it provides beginning violinists an opportunity to play music with their peers. For adolescents and adults, I place an earlier emphasis on designing a curriculum based on their musical interests, with equal focus devoted to technique. I also teach improvisation at the beginning stages to all students to encourage free musical expression.
LESSON STYLE
Similar to learning a language, the pathway to success and fulfilment on violin comes from the student's total immersion in the material and a desire to play. I bring an easy-going but focused demeanor to lessons to allow my students to comfortably assimilate the principles of violin technique and develop a love for playing music.

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.
