Whether you're looking for violin, viola, or music theory lessons for yourself or your child, students of all ages and levels are accepted. Based in Foothill Ranch, California, I can come to you or you may come to my home studio for lessons. Schedule a free Intro lesson today to see how I can help you in your musical journey on the violin or viola. Students in my studio have majored in music at university, become private teachers themselves, perform professionally or semi-professionally, won auditions for solos, become concertmasters or section leaders of their orchestras, and successfully competed in various youth festivals. As your teacher, I will guide you on a path that you will help determine. I coach orchestras and chamber ensembles, I can help prepare for auditions with orchestras or universities, I frequently teach Celtic fiddle repertoire, transcribe pop music, and am open to pursuing paths beyond the traditional, Classical music foundation.
I began playing violin in school in 1996, began private teaching in 2002, hold Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Music Performance, and love to share my passion for music and playing stringed instruments with my students.
