I believe that anyone can learn to play a musical instrument. Music can and should be a source of joy, whether you are a beginning player or professional, student or parent, four year-old or fifty year-old. At the same time, musicianship cannot be achieved without time, patience, effort and commitment. I want to enable my students to experience the joy that comes with playing well. To this end, I work with students and parents to foster the development of violin and fiddle skills, musicianship, discipline, and appreciation of music.
