I love sharing music with students every day and appreciate being part of the MPH community as both a teacher and parent of three young children.
I've been part of the MPH faculty since 2017. Previously, I've held teaching positions at the Suzuki School of Newton, Cambridge Public Schools, and Boston Public Schools. I've performed with several orchestras across the greater New England area, including but not limited to the Granite State Symphony, Boston Philharmonic, Waltham Symphony, and Lexington Symphony. I've also maintained a private violin studio throughout the years.
