While I am happy to meet now with prospective viola students and chamber ensembles of all ages who are committed to developing their musical skills, I will start taking new students in January, 2017. My background in university teaching makes me particularly well-qualified to help students prepare for potentially continuing their musical studies in college. Past students have gone on to study at The Juilliard School, Eastman, and the Universities of Wisconsin and Colorado among other places. Working together for either short-term basis (with a specific project/issue/audition in mind) or long-term is possible. I also hold a monthly studio performance class- occasionally with an invited guest teacher- which greatly complements private lessons.

My teaching rate of $80 for one-hour lessons includes monthly studio classes.

In early June I also teach a special, intensive session called the Boulder Violist. Participants are typically in high school or university, and I welcome students from around the region based on teacher recommendation.More information here
