I maintain a private studio in San Mateo, and offer violin and viola lessons to children and adults of all ages and levels. Skype lessons are also available for intermediate and advanced students.

Using a mixture of Suzuki, traditional and non-traditional pedagogies, I aim to adapt my teaching to each student’s unique personality, learning style and individual goals. Proper technique and a solid foundation are important focuses of course, but even more important to me is allowing a student to find the joy in playing music, and to instill a life long love and appreciation for arts and self expression.

Learning an instrument has been shown to have many benefits for children and studies prove that learning and instrument improves math, reading and language skills. No other activity uses as much of the brain as playing music!
