"I find great enjoyment in teaching violin and viola.  It's unbelievably rewarding to be a part of a student's growth with their instrument and music.  I like for my students to have at least a bit of fun at lessons, but I'm very focused on proper posture and playing techniques.  A good foundation of proper technique is the building block for advancement regardless of the genre the student wishes to play.  Although I have a general path that most students initially follow and most wish to pursue classical music, because of my own diverse musical background, I'm willing to teach just about any style and I enjoy doing it.  Variety is the spice of life... and music!"
