I grew up in a family of violinists. My mother was a wonderful, inspiring Suzuki violin teacher, and I was the youngest of 4 girls who all grew up on the violin. Music filled our home every day, and we were all raised on the Suzuki method. When we were young, we had the incredible experience of studying with Dr. Suzuki himself for a week when we traveled to Japan in the 1980s. I have vivid memories of his playful, positive teaching style, and the way he inspired us to find joy and life in the music we were creating. I studied political science at Brigham Young University, and while there, minored in music. I have spent the better part of my life playing in several orchestras and ensemble groups throughout the United States, and have also had the opportunity to perform in the US and internationally, as well as record with various musicians. Currently, I play first violin with the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras. I began teaching privately in 2004, and officially started my Suzuki teacher training in 2006. I love music and am wholly committed to Dr. Suzuki's philosophy. It is my great pleasure to be able to teach, and I hope to inspire my students with a love for the violin, for music, and for uplifting things.
