I am flexible with my teaching style according to each student's age, abilities and goals. I encourage progress in the long term, while not pushing students with unrealisitc expectations. I believe in being positive in lessons and in giving the students recognition of their achievements. I am a supportive teacher and I keep track of all my students' repertoire and performances.

I teach practical violin lessons in cooperation with music appreciation and listening, music theory, and music history. Students will quickly apprehend the joy of expressing and speaking through the violin. This universal language will become a lifelong friend. I offer a range of lessons, each one unique, based on the student’s age, performance level (previous experience is not necessary) general music knowledge, and, of course, the goals of the student.  Beginning through advanced students ages 3 years - 99 years are very welcome!  Beginners are encouraged to take private lessons, but group lessons as well as parent lessons in conjunction with the beginner Suzuki Philosophies are available upon request. Ear Training lessons are offered to students with at least 1 year of playing experience.   Classes include rhythmic and melodic dictation, sight-singing, fixed Do SOLFEGE, and conducting using the standard Danhauser and Starer books for intermediate though advanced students.  Young students will be taught using a variety of games, activities, and found in Suzuki’s theories.  Music History and Music Theory are offered to intermediate and advanced students.  I teach intermediate through advanced students of any instrument, beginning with basics such as key and time signatures and basic harmony.  Classes are also offered in Species Counterpoint, musical forms and terms, and eventually Baroque and Classical compositional forms for any students participating in All State.  As the lessons in harmony and counterpoint rise through the Middle Ages, Renaissance Era, and into Baroque Music, we study Bach and finish species counterpoint.

For young piano students, I use John Thompson's Easiest Piano Course and A Dozen a Day. For adults, I like to use Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course for a lesson book. I use various books for additional songs or technique depending upon a student's interests and abilities. I like to use different types of music - classical, traditional, pop, modern, etc.  For strings, I like to use String Builder, Suzuki, and other method and etude books. However, I do not teach the Suzuki method. I use the book for the songs and exercises in the book.  I also like all students to work from a theory book. When we learn how to speak, we also learn how to read and write in our language. I believe that the same is important for music. I use different books for adults and children.  As for continuing students, I will see what they know and continue from there.

As Shinichi Suzuki said, musical harmony breeds social harmony; to learn and make music together helps us all. For this I have grown the string and choral programs in Elmhurst's 51st Avenue Academy; taught violin, viola, and chamber music at the Queens College Center for Preparatory Studies in Music; led the Stony Brook Pre-College chamber music program; taught strings and chorus in Kiev, Ukraine; taught graduate education courses at Touro College online; and enjoy teaching music at NJ's Calderone School. My studio features recording and web-streaming gear for distance learning with high-definition sound and video. All along I have enjoyed teaching in-home and studio lessons for young and adult musicians in greater New York City.

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.
