About this pro

After studying violin, cello (beginning), and piano in Boston, at New England Conservatory with Eric Rosenblith, chamber music with Leslie Parnas and Burton Fine, I have been fortunate to enjoy over eighteen years of teaching violin and piano students.  I teach all ages, and my lessons are designed to enhance a student's life through the study of music. Music is initially provided and I strive to have the student learning enjoyable music from the first few lessons.  With an emphasis on reading music and ear training, through games, songs and instruments, students are encouraged to develop not only their own musical talent, but to discover the joy of music. I have earned BS and MS degrees.

 

I enjoy helping students achieve their goals and learn more about music.

I had a new student start violin and within just a few lessons she was playing Ode to Joy, and she had never played violin before.  The student was thrilled and so was I.
