Great Violinists aren't Born, they're Trained
Private online and in-person violin lessons for creative excellence
I know what it’s like to worry if you or your child is missing out on all they can achieve in music.
Is their violin practice time helping them make progress and stay inspired?
Are they learning the skills they need to play and enjoy higher-level pieces?
Do they know how to prepare for difficult auditions and performances?
Do they have the tools they need to handle stage fright or anxiety?
As a Juilliard graduate and a performing artist with over 20 years of experience, I’ve helped hundreds of students revolutionize their technique, master difficult repertoire, deepen their musicality, have fun, and learn to perform their best under pressure. I’m excited to welcome you to the studio, and see what we can achieve together. Available via Zoom from anywhere in the world, and in-person in Burlington and Orleans, VT.
