Some background...

I've dedicated my life to learning this remarkable instrument -- the violin.

A Wisconsin native, I have performed in orchestras across the United States. I have four degrees in violin performance under the some of the country's best violin teachers, over nineteen years of teaching experience, a diverse background in chamber music, solo, and orchestral performing.

 

In my work as a performing musician, I've played with many noted artists including Itzhak Perlman, Sir James Galway, Amy Grant, LeAnn Rimes, and Smokey Robinson. I currently play with the Colorado Springs Philharmonic Orchestra. 

 

I'm now offering violin lessons in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
