I love teaching music and inspiring my students to enjoy the beauty of the violin sound, which I find so close the human voice. I aim to create a healthy study environment, establish a connection with each student, and construct goals individually. I enjoy working with students of all ages and levels: beginners, intermediate and advanced. Teaching music can be hard and in order to do so, you need to be patient. I make my lessons fun but enforce accuracy persistently.
