Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
First I asses what they want to learn and what they may already know. From there we work on the mechanics of the instrument such as holding it properly and feeling comfortable with it. Basic reading and music theory is necesarry to help memorize, improvise, and achieve goals. So if you are looking play as a side hobby or make it a full fleged career you will have the tools needed!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have over 20 years of experience in playing Violin, Viola, and Piano. I have performed with bands and orchestras across Florida and other parts of the U.S. I attended FSU for Music Performance and continue perform regularly.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I am now collaborating with the Straz Center for a tribute video for Elijah McClain. Last August he was wrongfully a victim of police brutality in Colorado. Elijah was a violin player as well so I am arranging/organizing music and violin players across Tampa Bay to do a special collaboration video of the hauntingly relevant song "Perfect Way To Die" by Alicia Keys.
