Hello! I am a Baltimore-based violist studying at the Peabody Institute of Music. My primary goal in teaching viola is to help people make progress as efficiently as possible, with whatever intensity feels right for them. I encourage scales and a small technical regimen for sound production and conditioning, to go alongside practicing repertoire using a method that makes it simple to play cleanly and expressively. Understanding the logic great compositions are built with is essential for making that music truly come to life, so I am a big proponent of teaching music theory as a part of lessons. For beginning students, developing a good musical ear and enjoying exploring the possibilities of the viola always comes first.

I teach violin and viola lessons with the aim of improving technique, musicality, and interest in the instrument. Learning a string instrument can be challenging, but I believe it is also one of the most rewarding endeavors you can undertake. I focus on sound production and facility of the instrument, and try to make sure that every student is learning repertoire that helps them and interests them.

Trusted teacher: For violin and viola students, I use a combination of the Essential Elements curriculum, the Suzuki curriculum, and I also often compose original music tailored to the learning needs of each student. I want the student’s experience to be fun as well as educational, so in addition to the curriculum exercises, I will also be sure to add in some fun pieces that the student already is familiar with and enjoys. I have learned that being immersed in the world of music is vital for being a good teacher. Musicians who only teach and do not “cross-train” by performing on their instruments regularly and continuing learning simply do not have as much to offer to their students. I pursue all of these avenues actively, not only for my own benefit, but also for that of my students. My primary goal as a teacher is to be a motivating and inspiring mentor and guide. As the famous Chinese proverb says, a teacher opens the door, but students must enter by themselves. My highest aspiration is to show my students doors that they never knew existed, and giving them the tools to go through those doors on their own.
I provide my students with outstanding personalized music instruction with an empathetic yet disciplined approach that achieves positive results. My students benefit from my thirteen years of instrumental and vocal training. Whether in-person or online, I craft individualized lessons that suit their present abilities while motivating students with challenging tasks to expand upon their skill sets. My lessons aim to cultivate confidence, poise and professional quality technique in my students. Students benefit from my calm, patient approach to overcoming challenges through a step-by-step approach that concentrates on finding solutions tailored to each individual's current skill level. Above all, the focus of my lessons is on cultivating a shared love of music and deriving joy and pride in music performance. I am inspired by the determination and dedication of my music students. I enjoy cultivating an appreciation for music in my beginner students and sharing a passion for excellent music performance with my intermediate and advanced students. I have been teaching violin, viola and voice lessons for the past five years, fostering talent at multiple ages and skill levels.

Trusted teacher: This course is for viola and violin students from the beginner through the high school level, and any age from 5-99! My goal is for my students to foster a healthy and long-term relationship with their instrument. The course focuses on practicing and truly understanding technique, with an emphasis on listening. Weekly assignments tend to include technical exercises, scales, and classical pieces of the student's choice. Basic improvisation is also an interest of mine and, I find, a valuable experience for my string students. I believe repertoire is largely a matter of student taste. Students of mine have learned pieces in the Suzuki books and other classical repertoire volumes, but have also learned pop and fiddle songs according to their interest. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Violin Performance from the University of Puget Sound, where I graduated in 2015 before moving to Vienna to study privately for three years. I am currently on hiatus from a Master of Viola Performance degree at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague . I have been teaching violin intermittently since 2009. While my musical education is classical, my performance interests are much wider. I have performed jazz and pop improv, and am currently exploring how hip hop can be implemented on the viola and violin.

I'm a Maryland based violist who will be studying viola performance at the Rice University Shepherd School of Music in Fall 2021. My teaching is based on individual needs, so whether it is school orchestra class, youth orchestra, audition preparation, or just individual improvement, I will tailor to your own goals. I am very patient, and beginner or intermediate players would be a perfect fit! I teach at my home, at my students' homes, and through Zoom as well.
