I focus on the importance of creative sound quality by solid technical training, ear training, fluency in note reading and teaching different music styles. I teach violin students of all levels and all ages – from beginner level to professional level.
Music is a gift from God to enjoy. It is an exceptional art which can change the heart of children and adults by learning patience, good work attitude, discipline and developing a deep knowledge of the beauty of music. Sharing the joy of music with students of all ages and talents is a privilege I deeply appreciate.
