Location: Hanover, MD
Instructs: Viola, Violin
Education: My early music education was through Peabody Preparatory, where I studied under Phylis Freeman and others. Once I started high school, I began studying under Klara Berkovich. I attended Towson University, where I studied under Dr Zoltan Szabo. I am Suzuki certified.
Performance Experience: I performed in many local youth orchestras through middle and high school. I have also performed in the orchestra pit for local musical productions. Currently I play in several local duos and bands, including Andy Bopp and the Strung Out, The Kata Hay band, and Atomic Light Orchestra (Electric Light Orchestra Tribute).
Teaching Experience: I have taught at various local schools and from my home studio for more than 20 years. I am excited to be a part of the Music and Arts family!
Teaching Philosophy: I grew up learning how to play classically. Through the years, I have been offered some great opportunities to expand out of my classical box, and Im so glad I took advantage of those opportunities. Though I believe strongly in the foundations of classical technique, I love to see my students playing music they want to play. I encourage students to find music that they want to learn in addition to our basic curriculum so that lessons feel personalized and students become well rounded players.
