My purpose as a teacher is to discover and identify, with the student, his or her goals in the study of the violin, and to help the student to achieve those goals. Whether for serious study for the purpose of higher education, or for the enjoyment of the instrument and in learning to play it, my students are motivated by the the joy of discovery that is part of the learning process. I teach students of all ages and levels; my beginners range from the age of 4 to past retirement.
