After playing the violin for almost 40 years, I am still passionate about the instrument, and incredibly grateful for the great gift of music in my life. I generally jump at any opportunity to play...whether it be solo, chamber or in an orchestra (I regularly play in two orchestras). I also love teaching...as an instructor of applied violin/viola at the local community college, as a director of a local youth orchestra and in my private studio. Conducting music is also a rush!
I've been married for many years and have six terrific children. My youngest is playing the violin, and my twin daughters plan to pick up their instruments again in January (violin and cello).
