I prepare students to play classical music as a soloist and in small groups and orchestras. As a freelance violinist and Twin Cities Musicians Union member, I play violin in the Chippewa Valley Symphony Orchestra, Eau Claire Chamber Orchestra, and Saint Paul String Quartet. I also play as a volunteer in Twin Cities orchestras. I have been a professional violinist since age 19 and obtained a Minor in Music Performance (Violin) from Viterbo University with training from tutor Juan Cuñeo, concert violinist. I hold an MA in English degree from UW–Madison and Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) from Saint Mary’s University, creating lessons that match the interests and goals of the student.
