Hello! I am a violin teacher in the NYC area and I’ve been teaching for about 4 years. I graduated from Chapman University in Southern California and am currently attending the Manhattan School of Music to complete my master’s degree. In California, I taught both privately and in small orchestras as well as chamber groups such as quartets. My main goal as a teacher is to cater to each individual student whether that be in their playing, their learning styles or what their interests might be outside of music that could also help their musical growth. Even if the student isn’t planning on making music their career or even spending a lot of time on their instrument, I believe music helps in so many different aspects of someone’s life. It teaches discipline, creativity and openness and overall just enriches life. I hope to be a part of many people’s musical journeys into violin!
