I am a professional violist, violinist, conductor and private music teacher in the Phoenix metropolitan area. I have been teaching violin and viola for over twenty five years, and cello for eighteen years. I have been a member of the American String Teacher Association and the American Viola Society for over twenty five years. I hold a Doctorate in Music in Viola Solo Performance from Arizona State University, and a Masters of Music History from California State University Long Beach. I have written books on music, and been published in several journals. I was the viola instructor at Paradise Valley Community College for ten years, and their orchestra conductor for ten years. I am the current conductor of the Four Seasons Orchestra of Scottsdale. I am also the violist with the Four Seasons String Quartet. I am currently the Principal Violist of the Scottsdale Philharmonic. I love teaching music, and helping people to achieve their dreams to learn a stringed instrument. Please contact me so we can get started with private lessons.
