I started playing Suzuki violin at the age of four. I began playing viola at age twelve. I graduated from the University of Evansville as a music scholar where I studied music therapy. I am a certified Suzuki violin and viola teacher and a member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas.
I am now a faculty member with the San Diego Suzuki School of Music and director of the violin program at Santa Fe Montessori School. My past writing work includes publications for the Suzuki Music Association of California - San Diego Branch quarterly newsletter, Strings Magazine and various e-books. I also do some freelance gigging and orchestra work.
Being a Suzuki teacher is part of who I am. I firmly believe that our education and surroundings shape who we become. I started this blog because writing helps me to explore my work from different viewpoints. The posts are centered around thoughts and experiences while exploring the Suzuki Method of teaching. Teaching in an of itself should be a a constant learning process.
