I am a professional free-lance violinist and teacher. I am a member of the Princeton Symphony Orchestra and the Riverside Symphonia, among other orchestras. I also spent seven years in South Africa as a member of the Natal Philharmonic Orchestra. I have a Bachelor of Music degree in violin performance from Temple University.
I teach private violin lessons in my home. I accept students of all ages and levels. I am a traditional teacher, meaning I will teach the student to read music and count rhythm. It is my goal that you will be able to pick up a new piece of music and play it without ever having heard the piece. I also incorporate ear training and music theory into the lessons.
I do ear training with all of my students. As a string player, well-trained ears are an absolute necessity. I use Solfeggio (the study of do - re - mi) to train the ear to hear pitch and intervals. I use movable "Do," as opposed to fixed "Do."
I took two years of ear training classes in high school. I also did ear training in two summer music camps I attended prior to college. Subsequently, I took another two years of ear training at Temple University, as required for my Bachelor of Music degree.
I use Solfeggio with all of my students. It is a very efficient means of teaching ear training and sight-singing. I first studied sight singing for two years in high school, as well as summer music camps. Subsequently, I took two more years of sight singing at Temple University as required for my Bachelor of Music degree.
I have my Bachelor's Degree in Violin Performance from Temple University. After graduating I taught for Temple's Community Music Program. I also studied privately with the assistant concertmaster of the Philadelphia Orchestra, William DePasquale, in order to prepare for symphony auditions. I won a violin position with the Natal Philharmonic Orch. in Durban, South Africa. I spent seven years in South Africa playing symphony, ballet and opera, as well as teaching violin lessons at a private school. I presently freelance with several local symphonies and teach private lessons in my home.
