A bit about myself:

Education:
1. Undergraduate degree in Violin McGill University
2. Honors Student Mannes School of Music in NYC
3. Centre d’Arts Orford
4. Domaine Forget International Music Festival

Teaching Experience:
1. 6 Years Private Studio – Violin Teacher
2. Montpelier Chamber Orchestra – Sectional Coach

I studied with the teaching assistant of Ivan Galamian, Miss Sally Thomas, for six years so my teaching method is solidly grounded in Galamian pedagogy. A method that encourages students with principles and guidelines, rather than rules and regulations. I also have experience with the RCM curriculum and teaching in the Suzuki Method.
