I strongly believe having a fun and interactive lesson with a student is the key to learning music.  I am a very patient and open-minded educator because I understand that it can be a daunting task to learn something if the student doesn't enjoy it.  For example, some of my older beginner studnets feel silly when I ask them to learn Twinkle Twinkle, so I ask them for their favorite song, and I transcribe the tune for them to practice.  For some students, motivation comes from having a percivable goal, in which I encourage the students to apply for auditions, such as N.Y.S.S.M.A.  Let me know what your needs are, and I am happy to accomodate my style of teaching depending on your personality and progress.  I am here not just to teach, but also to inspire and have fun with music.

As an active concert violinist, I have appeared with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Brockton Symphony and Quincy Symphony Orchestras, and enjoy frequent guest appearances with the Lowell and Waltham Philharmonic Orchestras.  While performing at The Universitat Mozarteum Akademie Salzburg, I was recently named Laureate for my execution of 21st century composer Lera Auerbach's 'T'filah' for Solo Violin. As an orchestral musician, I was Concertmaster of The Juilliard Orchestra, hold the Principal Second position in Solisti Ensemble, and was featured member of the critically acclaimed Axiom Ensemble.  As a founding member of The Moirae Ensemble, I  design and perform concert programs that feature contemporary women composers, the most recent of which includes two world premieres and will be presented at Barnard Hall as a part of their renowned concert series. I also habitually appear around the Tri-State area with such esteemed ensembles as Concerts on the Slope, New York Classical Players, and The New York Chamber Orchestra.  I graduated from The Juilliard School with a Bachelor and Masters Degrees as a student of Glenn Dicterow and Joel Smirnoff.

It is my utmost pleasure to share and teach my experiences in music to students. In my years of teaching music, I have learned that I acquire just as much knowledge in music as my student does from me. I was raised in a classically-oriented teaching style in piano. Though unpopular to my peers at the time, I had an appreciation for classical music that motivated me to learn new pieces and methods in a classical sense. Through competitions and recitals, I overcame high levels of stress and pressure easily, in an enjoyable manner. Though rigorous and meticulous, my experience and journey in music was not easy. However I am ultimately grateful of who I am today thanks to my teachers and parents who motivated me to continue on and not give up.

I've been teaching and performing on Long Island and New York since 2008. I love teaching children. My teaching philosophy is to give ability to internalize basic rhythms and pulse to read-musical literacy, to perform with physical ease and technical efficiency, to hear the notes on the page, to work creatively-improvise compose, harmonize and play by ear, to understand basic elements of theory, form harmony, etc.; and perform comfortably individually and with others in a variety of settings.

I have a passion for both playing the violin and teaching. I like to make my students feel comfortable so that they are more open to learning and expressing themselves. But I'm always pushing them to be better by making them identify and correct mistakes, not slack off on posture, learning through repetition, and consistent practice outside of lessons. I recognize that each student has a different background, personality, and learning style, and it is the teacher's job to cater to the specific needs of each student.

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.
