Began playing at 9 years old. Studied Suzuki in my teens. Despite learning to play other instruments (piano, guitar, bass and harmonica) throughout the years, the violin comes most naturally. Before budget cuts came along, I had a nice career headlining on cruise ships. My journey with the violin has been a sentimental one. It is so nice that in this Information Age, we have greater access to the works of Sevcik, Dounis, Menuhin, Galamian, et cetera. These works were unknown to me as a young player. Enjoying them immensely as an adult. So great to have found www.violinist.com!
