I’ve been playing violin since I was two years old. My mom is a violin teacher, and she told me once that she believed in starting string players when they are too young to understand how bad they sound…so she gave me a great gift in starting me before the age of conscious memory.
I grew up in a large family of musicians, all string players, so the house was always noisy and practice spaces were a precious commodity. My space ended up being the laundry room: a spot with the distinguishing characteristic of feeling completely soundproof for the person inside, and being absolutely not for the people outside.
Now, years later, I’m still playing violin and I’m still in love with the instrument, the music, and the life I live through playing violin. I currently life in Atlanta, where I am part of the Quartet-in-Residence at Emory University, and my days are filled with practicing, teaching and performing. I feel lucky to have what one of my teachers told all of her students to hope for: an interesting life in music.
I hope by visiting this website I can share a bit of that interesting life with you. Look around and see what I’m up to - listen, read, and even drop me a note if you have any questions. Cheers!
