Music has been a passion of mine since I started music lessons at the age of 6. I founded and directed the Suffolk Chamber Orchestra in high school which performed in weddings, graduations, and outreach community venues such as nursing homes which is just one example of how playing an instrument is a great way to get involved in your community!
Music has really broadened my horizons and given me the opportunity to travel. In 2006 I toured as the soloist performer in the LIYO Asia orchestra tour where we performed in cities all over China, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Cambodia. I also love performing in theatre. I performed in Faust which ranked in the top three opera productions in the nation by the National Opera Association. I also enjoyed performing with the Metropolitan Opera’s Opera in a Nutshell performance of La Boheme and Tosca. The highlight of my performing career was playing in Avery Fischer Hall, Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall.
I have ten years of teaching experience. I decided to devote my college education to studying violin teaching methods and received my degree in String Pedagogy-Violin Principle. I taught the High School/Middle School music prep students at the college and also taught at the Bob Jones Elementary School. My students have ranked in the top 3 in their school's music competition and 1st chair in orchestra. I am also part of the Starling-Delay Symposium at the Julliard School where I have attended master classes by great pedagogues/performers such as Itzhak Perlman and Ani Kavafian. I hope to install everything I have learned to my students and share the joy of music with them so they can share it with others!
