Welcome to Orchestra! Music is a subject that allows for development in many other areas, such as social skills, math, determination, as well as teaching patience and organization skills. I cannot wait to make music with the students and embark on a wonderful musical journey together!
My Education and Professional Background
I am a violinist and music educator with nearly 18 years of performing experiences and 9 years of teaching music lessons. I have played with the Butler University Symphony Orchestra, the Wheaton Pops Orchestra, and have been concert mistress of the OPUS and the Glenbard West Orchestras.I was also the concertmaster of the Civic Theatre Orchestra and Ohio University Symphony Orchestra, as well as a member of the Klinder Graduate Quartet. I have toured Italy and Slovenia with the International Music Festival of the Adriatic. An avid teacher, I have taught at Stacey De School of Performing Arts, Butler Community Arts School, Christel House, Shortridge High School, OPUS Chamber Music Camp, Athens Community Arts School, and B Amazing Music. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Violin Performance from Butler University and a master's degree in Violin Performance at Ohio University, studying with a full scholarship and assistantship in the Graduate Quartet.
My Educational Philosophy
I enjoy sharing my love of music with others and believes that music and the arts are key to a well-rounded education. Music can teach students empathy and can serve as a creative outlet that can stick with them for the rest of their lives. I believe every child has the right to experience music as part of their education and that anyone can learn to play an instrument if they put their mind to it.
