I am a very dedicated and hardworking teacher who loves teaching students young and old, of all levels of playing. I do my very best to inspire students to try their best and trust the process!

Learning an instrument is frustrating at times but the improvement after hard work is so rewarding.

I teach both RCM and Suzuki method. I recommend to all my students that it is best to begin with Suzuki method if you are a beginner and then transition into RCM.  I teach all levels of violinists from beginner to more advanced violinists (typically RCM grades 1-10).

I am able to help prepare students for exams, performances, or auditions as well!
