Bio
I started playing violin as a young child at 4 years of age. I was taught the Suzuki method and attended group lessons until I began private lessons around 1st grade. It was not until late high school when I really decided I wanted to play the violin for more than just recreation. My teacher at this time was Linda Sinanian, a truly wonderful solo and chamber violinist who has also served in several orchestras. I attribute much of my growth as a violinist to her patient and thorough teaching. She prepared me and enabled me to be accepted at Cedarville University in the Fall of 2000. At Cedarville, I studied with Stacey Wooley, a member of the Cincinnatti Symphony. Through the dedicated teachers at the University, I gained the knowledge and tools to continue my performance study at the University of Akron. Alan Bodman, concert master of the Akron Symphony Orchestra, accepted me as a student in 2005. Through his very organized and attentive coaching, I was able to improve as a violinist more than I could have ever thought possible in 2 years. I graduated with my MM in 2007. Now that I am a part of the professional world of violinists, I desire to continue to improve my skills and abilities. Through teaching, I also desire to give other aspiring violinist the chance to achieve their dreams as well.
