Violin Teacher

Influences: David Oistrakh, Jorge Vergara, Cathy Meng Robinson, Miami String Quartet, Daniel Heifetz, Carolyn Huebl, Ilya Kaler, Hagai Shaham,Atar Arad, Matthew Dane, James Dunham.

About Me:
My approach is the same as Mr. Suzuki. Everyone can develop the ability to play an instrument, so I believe all children have the potential to become excellent musicians. My teaching is very committed to showing the importance of discipline and hard work as tools to reach excellence. Additionally, I work on improving and perfecting bow technique, since I believe the mastery of the bow is the real lung of breathing and phrasing in violin playing.

Ages:
Teenage, Adult
