Violin

I am a professional classical viola player. I play in orchestras, chamber music ensembles and give solo recitals. I attended a conservatory from age 9-21 then followed with Master's Degree, Artist Diploma and a doctorate all in performance area. Viola players, when young, typically start on a violin or violin sized viola. The technical prospect is the same as the viola. I teach violin 4 days a week to 7 kids.
