Teaching Experience and Education


Teaching Experience

I have extensive experience, listed below, teaching both children and adults and have studied with many teachers since I began taking violin lessons when I was 8 years old.  Throughout my years as a violin student I experienced good teachers, great teachers and some not so good but I learned from all of them all what works and what doesn’t and I apply this when I teach.

Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM), 26 years
Private Teaching, 30+ years
Public School Boards, 8 years


Music Education Degree from University of Toronto
ARCT from the RCM
Suzuki Music Institute, Queens University (5 summers)
Banff School of Fine Arts summer programs (master classes)

Professional Experience

Played in many orchestras; recording work.
