I am passionate about teaching music at a high standard of classical technique while keeping it engaging, particularly for young children, because having a solid foundation is crucial to developing meaningful skills in music that will last a lifetime. I always establish a rapport with my students, so that I am not just their teacher, but also their mentor and friend. I am here to find the great artist in each of my students while teaching them the technique that gives them the freedom to do so.

I started playing the violin and piano when I was 5 years old. I attended the Juilliard Pre-College program as a violin major for 4 years, studying with Dean Emeritus Stephen Clapp, I-Hao Lee, and Ann Setzer. As a soloist, I have performed in Carnegie Hall as a winner of violin and piano competitions in NYC. Currently I am pursuing my undergraduate degree in violin performance as a student with Andrew Wan—concert- master of the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal—and am the recipient of the Schu-lich and Wirth scholarships at the Schulich School of Music at McGill University.

Teaching children:

I have 10 years of experience teaching and working with kids in music and the arts. I started off as an assistant teacher for my family’s music studio in New Jersey, and it soon progressed into a paid weekly teaching position for children ages 5-13. Topics covered with students include basic music theory, scales, arpeggios, and exercises for technique, and various repertoire for learning different styles of music and establishing artistry.

Ultimately, my goal from teaching music is to leave a person a better critical thinker, more sensitive to the beauty in the world, and adept in musical skills, both technically and artistically, that will undoubtedly benefit and transfer to all other pas- sions and pursuits in life.
