Personal Statement
I am a professional violinist in NYC, with degrees from Juilliard (M.M. in Violin Performance; D.M.A. candidate) and Harvard (B.A. in Music). Among my teachers are Joseph Lin (first violinist of the Juilliard String Quartet), Ronald Copes (second violinist of the Juilliard String Quartet), Lynn Chang (Boston Conservatory), and Robin Sharp (Stanford University). Other musicians whom I consider integral to my development as a musician include Robert Levin, who coached me in chamber music at Harvard, and Norman Fischer, with whom I studied contemporary music at the Tanglewood Music Center.

My performance experiences range from solo (Carnegie Hall debut in 2011; numerous other performances in various NYC venues) to orchestral (Metropolitan Opera, New World Symphony, Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, and more) to even popular music (Cheryl B. Engelhardt's CD One Up)! I am constantly evaluating my own musicality and the physical mechanics of how I play, and I apply this to my teaching of students of all levels.

In addition to maintaining a private studio, my teaching positions have included:
TEACHING ARTIST, Chamber Music by the Bay
