My teaching experience begins during my time in college. Each summer, I am a junior counselor at a county music camp where I teach violin sectionals, participate in orchestra, and lead coachings. When asked, I coach chamber ensembles in the College Park area schools. Since the summer of 2014, I have held a private violin studio in Oxon Hill Maryland. I also teach locally. As a student of Dr. Gerald Fischbach and Dr. James Stern, I learned many pedagogical techniques that I use in my own teaching.

I'm an ardent and compassionate instructor who enjoys sharing the gift of music with children and adults. Music enriches the communities in which we live and expands our capacity to connect with humanity. I studied privately with Philip J. Teibel of the Buffalo Philharmonic from childhood through High School. I toured the Southeast US with the Oberlin College Choir and Orchestra in college. Since graduation, I've had the opportunity to perform with numerous ensembles including: Soulful Symphony and the Baltimore Symphony at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall and Strathmore Music Center in North Bethesda. I have performed as concertmaster and soloist with Michael W. Smith and the McLean Bible Church Orchestra.

Instruments:

I love teaching students to learn to read and play music! It is exciting to see each student develop a passion for music as he or she learns to play his or her instrument better! My approach to teaching is to meet the student where they are and help them progress at his or her own pace. I try to provide lots of encouragement and praise as well as helpful advice about how to improve their music skills. I use positive incentives such as stickers when possible and I tailor the instruction based on the student's interests and needs.

My teaching methods depend on the age and ability of the student. From younger students and beginners to older or more advanced students. For violin, I use my own tailored curriculum. I teaches basic scales, essential techniques to all levels, and various pieces of music depending on the student’s needs. I use Suzuki, Kayser, Hohmann, the Third Position, etc. and various concertos for advanced students. For piano, I use Alfred Piano course for beginners, and then use Hanon, Sonatine, and other piano pieces.
