I am a concert trained violinist/violist who teaches students to play music not just  play notes. A graduate of the Manhattan School of Music and teacher of over thirty years, I teach beginners through advanced violin, viola and cello students privately.     I hold a  K-12 NJ Music Teacher Certificate. I was the teacher of strings in the Florham Park NJ School District for over 11 years. As an adjunct at the Delbarton School in Morristown I have worked with the students of the Young Abbey Orchestra and the Abbey Senior Orchestra. Director/Conductor of the All-Wayne Schools Orchestra and Advanced String Ensemble in the Wayne NJ Public Schools. A Judge of Regions and All-State Auditions for many years, I prepare students accordingly. (Please see Sheila Mendel in Passaic County).

I am a traditional teacher, using materials from a variety of methods. I specialize in secondary students, though teach primary beginners, as well. I regularly prepare students for college applications and music school auditions. My students often choose to enter competitions and orchestra auditions but are not required to. Students perform in group classes, home recitals, and an annual formal recital. I teach Cadet Teacher Training Courses for violin and viola. My overarching interest is in violin pedagogy, finding ways to get from beginner to Paganini solidly and efficiently.

I have many years of experience teaching cello to students from age 3 to adult. My students consistently do well in Region, All-State, and National auditions. Many have won competitions and have auditioned successfully for Juilliard, Manhattan, and Mannes Pre-College programs. I strive to teach each student at a high level of technique and musicality. In addition, I value each student as an individual and develop a course of study which best fits each one.

I have been teaching cello privately for almost 35 years, working with students age 5 through adults, and strive to foster enthusiasm for and love of music. I teach a traditional method, using a variety of books and materials. My students participate in their school orchestras and ensembles, perform in my own student recitals, and play in area youth, amateur, regional, and all-state orchestras. I also prepare them for college auditions and competitions, if they choose to. Each year my students participate in the ASTA Certificate Advancement Program. I'm aware that each student is an individual, so I work with each student at a pace that's tailored to their individual needs and goals. My aim is to encourage and nurture each student's musical growth and have them learn to enjoy the experience learning new skills, as well as develop a life-long love for music and the cello.
