Hello! I am an active violin teacher and performer in the New York City area, and graduate of the Juilliard School. I earned my Bachelor of Music degree in Violin Performance, studying with the world-renowned violinist, Naoko Tanaka (Faculty, the Juilliard School, New England Conservatory of Music; Concertmaster, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra; Concertmaster, Orchestra of St. Luke's.)
In addition to my private teaching studio, I assistant teach for Ms. Tanaka, with a focus on preparing her younger students for entry into Juilliard Pre-College. I also teach group classes and private lessons for the Harmony Program, offered in select public schools throughout NYC.
In my lessons one thing is instantly noticeable - I LOVE to teach the violin. I think it's incredibly fun and I enjoy getting to know, challenge, and help my students. I value creativity and each person's unique perspective.
I have experience teaching both adults and young children, levels beginning to advanced. My teaching philosophy values a fun and creative approach to learning music, focusing on musicality and improvisation, as well as a solid technical foundation.
