I hold my Bachelor or Music degree in Violin Performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music, where I studied with David Updegraff. Pre-conservatory, I studied with Ray Shows of the Artaria String Quartet based in St. Paul, Minnesota. I graduated cum laude from The Blake School in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I have a strong background in competitive performance and chamber music. I enjoy finding the unique ways that each student thrives in their learning experience and developing my teaching style for each student individually so that they flourish and find joy and excitement in music.
