I specialize in the Suzuki method & also teach fiddling and the traditional classical violin method. We perform in 2 recitals per year.

I started teaching at SF State University in 1989 where I was trained in the Suzuki Methodology. Soon after I became a member of the staff at St. Cecilia school teaching private violin classes. From there I built up my home studio in Hayward, taught in a Livermore after school program at Burbank School in Hayward, private and group classes in Brentwood and I am now teaching private lessons out of my home studio and at A Dancers Pointe in Apple Valley, California.
