Hello! I am a Long Island-based viola and violin teacher currently working towards a Master's degree in viola performance at Stony Brook University. I have taught more than a dozen violin and viola students ages 6-70 over the past 5 years, and I continue to maintain a hybrid studio in Northern Virginia in addition to lessons online and on Long Island. I hold a Bachelor of Music degree in viola from the Peabody Institute of Music in Baltimore. I care deeply about the quality of my lessons, and I continuously improve my teaching materials to meet the needs of each student and to reflect each new insight I gain about string playing. My approach in lessons is based on having a long term plan for each student of becoming an excellent all-around musician, while achieving satisfying results in the short term. The most important skill I focus on with every student, young and old, is being able to analyze a technical or musical problem, break it down into a set of realistic steps, and work with efficiency to gain and retain the results. In other words: understanding how to practice in a rewarding but challenging way. In my viola and violin lessons, music theory work is vital to making musical progress, whether through understanding chords and tonal harmony, or simply reading music fluently. I was the recipient of the Azalia H. Thomas Prize for Music Theory in my graduating class at Peabody, and I regularly compose and arrange music for my students and peers. I am glad to teach theory and composition independently of instrumental instruction for interested students, but know that if you would like to study an instrument with me, you will build a great base knowledge of theory.

I have over 10 years of experience teaching guitar, bass, and drums in both individual and group settings. Through goal setting and incremental improvements, you'll be able to track your progress and feel a sense of accomplishment as you develop a deep understanding of your instrument(s). We can work together via webcam or in-home and I'm confident that your musicianship and music theory knowledge will both improve quickly. While I feel certain techniques are essential for all students to learn, I enjoy working with students on all styles of music and encourage a wide variety of genres for both listening and practicing purposes. Rock, pop, blues, jazz, southern rock, classical and funk are a few of my personal favorites to play and teach with. I spent the last 5 years teaching at the School of Rock, in New Jersey. This experience greatly helped to shape my teaching into being both engaging and efficient. My time there also helped me to develop my own personal practice habits, as well as see different routes to helping students learn, when one method may seem overwhelming at first. I'm looking forward to working with more students from my hometown in Virginia, as well as online students from around the world. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to me!

Trusted teacher: I specialize in tutoring beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels of Music Theory. As a current student at The Berklee College of Music and a long-time violinist, pianist, guitarist, and professional vocalist, I not only have a deep understanding to share about the ins and outs of music theory, I carry a passion for this particular art form as well. Even with the most basic knowledge of music theory, students can find themselves able to play various instruments without having picked them up in the past and extensively understand pieces of music that they may be challenged to play or listen to. My goal is to help students remain curious and share the development of passion that has potential to come with learning the language of music.

Trusted teacher: I offer lessons in guitar/bass, piano/keyboard (classical/experimental/pop/jazz), composition/songwriting, production/recording (DAWs, mixing, editing etc). No matter what level we're on, as musicians and artists we're all part of a wonderful and strange ongoing human project, and I believe that it's my duty to share the knowledge and skills that I've accumulated throughout the course of my life and career. Over the years, my work has branched out in many different stylistic directions but I am firmly rooted in avant-garde/classical music. I hold two degrees in composition: a Master of Music '11 from the Yale School of Music where I also taught undergraduate lessons in composition; and a BA in Music Composition from the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Sweden ('09). I've written large scale works for orchestra, chamber pieces, solo music for a variety of instruments, works with multichannel electronics, and works for theater and dance. For those interested, my recorded work is easily accessible online on a variety of labels and my scores are available from Schott Music New York. As a pianist, I began formal training at age 6 and worked through much of the classical repertoire before deciding to focus fulltime on composition. I am also an accomplished studio musician, improviser (jazz/free/experimental), and a member of several groups/ensembles. A firm believer in the use of intuition as a primary tool in music making of all kinds, I would like our lessons to be shaped according to your needs and interests. No matter what level you are on, my goal will always be to offer you exactly what you need at each given step. I treat each student as a unique collaborative effort. Apart from technical and aesthetic approaches, it is usually very difficult and takes a long time to find one's 'voice' as a performer, writer or producer; this is inevitable except in rare cases, and I will endeavour to teach you to trust in your own abilities, overcome insecurities and doubts, and connect your artistic practice with a more unified mindset that goes beyond imagined technical and stylistic limitations and aesthetic policing. The main point is to eradicate unnecessary obstacles to your creativity and learn to trust your intuition and choices.
