A classically trained professional jazz violinist and former Associate Professor at the Berklee College of Music, I founded an online lessons site in 2011 called the "Creative Strings Academy", offering instructional videos to help classical string players improvise and develop creativity in different musical styles.
My annual "Creative Strings Workshop", a week-long camp for improvising string players, occurs every July in Columbus, Ohio.
Feel free to contact me at or visit and let me know if I can help in any way!
