I believe everyone can learn to play and enjoy the violin. I teach a range of ages from 5 years old to adult, from beginners to advanced.  For younger students I teach in a hybrid Suzuki and Traditional format. Lessons are adapted to each student in order to not only teach skills and technique, but leave room for exploring personal musical interests.


As Adjunct Professor of Violin at Winthrop University, I would love to talk to you about joining our Eagle family!

Why do we teach music? Not because we expect you to major in music. Not because we expect you to play and sing all your life. Not so you can relax. But so you will be human. So you will recognize beauty. So you will be sensitive. So you will have something to cling to. So you will have more love, more compassion, more gentleness, more good, in short, more life. Of what value will it be to make a prosperous living unless you know how to live? That is why we teach music.  –Unknown.
