    About MeContact Me
    I am a full time professional violinist and violist, with a teaching studio in NE Seattle. I have an active studio with a wide range of ages and abilities (currently, ages 5 to 60+). There are group classes available usually once a month for similarly skilled players to play and learn together. I believe in nurturing the innate musical gifts in each of my students.

    My Teaching Background
    I grew up in Seattle, attending the UW and later North Carolina School of the Arts as a violin performance major. For 18 years I was in the Charlotte Symphony, where I was associate concertmaster. I returned to Seattle and have been active in the musical community, performing as a sub with the Seattle Symphony, Seattle Opera, 5th Ave. Theatre and other groups. I have been teaching all my professional life, and now enjoy a lively active studio, made up of students of all ages and abilities.

    My Teaching Philosophy
    I find myself increasingly drawn to the joys of teaching - of nurturing others as they grow into their musicianship. My hope is that all my students will develop a love and appreciation of music and, of course, enjoy learning to create music in their own unique way. Increasing students' learning potential by creating online and interactive etudes, duets and solo songs is one of my interests.

    Rates And Availability
    I have a private teaching studio in my home in NE Seattle (Lake City) I charge $30/1/2 hr., $45/45 min., and $60/hr. I believe strongly that music lessons should be available for all and offer two spots in my schedule for "scholarship students. If currently available, these spots are for committed, motivated students that do not have the financial means otherwise to study privately. Please inquire to as to the availability of these spots.
