Teachers and mentors have played a pivotal role in my development as a musician, and I am committed to sharing these lessons with the next generation of musicians.


For me, teaching goes beyond just showing someone how to play the violin –– it is a way for students to learn broader life skills and freely exchange ideas. I feel privileged to be a part of each student's journey. I have over twenty years of experience as a teacher and am comfortable leading students in both traditional and Suzuki methods.
