I have many years of teaching experience, and have trained at the country's best conservatories and universities.
My students range in ability from beginner to very advanced, but they all have two things in common: good technique
and a love for music! If your student would like to learn how to play the violin or viola, I encourage you to research
the many fine teachers in the area, including me! Look through my website to read more about me, and listen to my
music samples to hear more about me.
I had many friends and colleagues inspire me with their own recordings, and finally took their suggestions that I
record the Suites. The Suites were recorded within three (long) days, and from memory, at Opus 4 Studios in Seattle,
by the esteemed Dr. Mike Matesky.
