My teaching methods include traditional and Suzuki technique with an emphasis on music theory.  Young students benefit from Suzuki technique using activities and games to foster learning.  For young beginners as well as adult, I start with Hal Leonard's Esential Elements. Lessons include classical as well as popular music and are tailored to the need of the individual student.  By instilling a strong foundation in string technique and music reading, students progress quickly and have fun.  An education in music is an important part of a complete education for all ages.

For beginning students, I generally start with Suzuki Method, Sassmannshaus, and my own methods which I have created over the years.  I emphasize the importance of ear training, becuase that is what allows us to know if we are playing correctly.  For intermediate and advanced students, we work very heavily on warm ups, scales, etudes, and repertoire.  Repertoire is a personal thing, and many of my adult students already have an idea of what they would like to play.  However, I do love the Suzuki Method's choices of repertoire and I will typically work from this methodology, unless we have discussed otherwise.

I am extremely passionate about music and excited to pass my passion on to students.  I have been studying violin since I was 4 years old and it has always been a central part of my life. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University this past May with a BFA in Violin Performance and Physics.  I enjoy music of all styles and in addition to classical music I play rock and jazz.  I collaborate frequently with Trenton based rock artist Roy Orbitron.

I began teaching music as a sophomore in high school. I started my own choir that created performance opportunities for high school students, gave them a chance to learn and perform music that was meaningful to them, and challenge the members to grow as musicians. In college I taught piano, voice, theory, and composition privately and again started and directed my own choir. This choir was invited to perform at Carnegie and the New Jersey Music Educators Conference. I am always on the look out for opportunities for my students and choir members to showcase their talents, pursue their passions, and grow.

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.

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.
