About Teacher

I teach violoncello, piano, and violin. I studied the Suzuki Repertoire, through Violoncello Book 8, mainly, with Tanya Carey; who was president of the Suzuki Association of America; and, also, with other SAA Teacher trainers.

I studied with David Freed, the principal cellist of the Utah Symphony, when I was in high school, and while I was attending Brigham Young University. I played with the Utah Valley Symphony, and the BYU Symphony.

I played violoncello with the National Symphony in San José, Costa Rica, in Central Americaand studied with Maestro Combronero the principal cellist.  He had me sit by him in the first stand. I played with musical groups in Frankfurt, Germany.

I studied Suzuki piano with Atsuko Sugahara in Tokyo, Japan, and observed Haruko Kataoka and her piano students.

I observed Shinichi Suzuki teaching violin in Matsumoto, and Hiroshi San, teaching violin in Nagano, and my son studied violin with Cho San in Tokyo.

When I returned to Utah, I played with the Southwest Symphony.

I taught in the Early Morning String Program of the Washington County School District, as well as, in my private music studio. I, now, have a private music studio in Provo, Utah.
