I have played violin since I was 5 years old.
I was trained with the Suzuki Method and completed all levels of Suzuki by age 10.
When I was an elementary school student, I played with the middle school orchestra.
Since elementary school, I was concert mistress and principal violinist of my elementary, middle, and high school orchestras.
I was nominated to play in the NYSSMA Festival (New York State School Music Association), the All-County Orchestra, and the Long Island String Festival. I was nominated and accepted based on my performance on state-wide playing tests and teacher recommendations.
I have scored 99%-100% on the highest level state-wide performance tests for 10 years.
I auditioned and was accepted to play in various orchestras in New York--including the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra and the Children's Orchestra Society (co-founded by the sibling of Yo-Yo Ma).
I would love to teach violin to children to bring out the soul that music touches in everybody's lives. I have had many experiences with tutoring and recently decided to teach violin because of my passion in music and of my patience in teaching students.
