Welcome and thank you for viewing my profile!

I am a young professional violinist seeking students who are eager to learn! I received my Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance Summa Cum Laude in 2014 from West Virginia University and my Master of Music in Violin Performance from University of Texas at Arlington in 2016. I have been playing for 17 years and studying music theory since I started college in 2010. I am a member of the American String Teachers Association, National Association for Music Educators, American Chamber Music Society, and Society of Music Theory. 

As a teacher I recognize that each student learn differently and at their own pace and I pride myself on being a flexible instructor in that regard. While I do have a basic plan for beginning students (a certain order of learning techniques and pieces) I encourage students to share music they are interested in learning so that we can incorporate it into our work! I am comfortable teaching all ages and all levels! 


My studio currently has many openings! Contact me today to set up a trial lesson!
