About this pro

I have played violin for 43 years now, and I have taught all of the orchestral stringed instruments. I also have played piano for 40 years, and I have been a professional singer for many years. 

I currently play violin with Garden State Philharmonic and The Bronx Symphony. 

I played violin with the Venice Symphony Orchestra in Venice, FL for 33 years. 

I am a composer and an arranger of many compositions. 

I have directed award winning choirs in the state of Florida. 

I sang in a brand new musical off Broadway, and currently am assisting with the choral writing for this musical. 

*** Lesson Details *** 
I am an easy going person, but I do believe that students have to put forth effort to succeed. I choose my curriculum depending on the level of the student and the instrument. For beginning string students, I typically use Essential Elements 2000, and for beginning piano students I use the Alfred's Adult Basic Piano Course. 

After 3 months of lessons, a student that has begun with me will have the basics of the instrument down and be able to read basic notation. 

After 6 months, the student should have completed book one and be ready to start some more in depth studies that will concentrate on mastering the instrument. 

*** Travel Equipment *** 
I have my own Violin. Students would need an instrument of their own. I will come to where the student lives to teach their lessons. 

*** Specialties *** 
I am a classically trained Violinist 
I am good at teaching pianists to improvise by reading a lead sheet.
