I have a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Southern California and have 20 years of ear training and teaching exp.
Under my guidance, students have experienced amazing success. In my 20 years as a music teacher, I have had many of my students win
principal chair positions in local youth orchestras such as The American Youth Symphony Orchestra, YMF Debut Orchestra, Claremont Young Musicians Orchestra, and Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestra, among others. All of my students have scored 5 on AP music theory exams and/or have placed above the second year of undergraduate music
theory classes at the university level. I have also seen many of my students go on to win full scholarships to Julliard, USC, Johns
Hopkins, Harvard/NEC, and other prestigious university music programs.
Of course, I have achieved some degree of success myself. My education and training includes University of Southern California,
under Donald McInnes, New England Conservatory, with Burton Fine, and
with Samuel Rhodes of the Julliard String Quartet. I have performed in concert tours in more than 20 countries, including as soloist at the Aspen Music Festival, the Tanglewood Music Center, and the

Radio National Competition, as well as the Hong Kong Commercial Radio Prize.
