Her style of teaching is fun, caring and creative. "I love building up my student's confidence which allows them to soar with their music!" She offers group and private lessons in San Jose off The Alameda (1100 Shasta Ave.) and teaches private students at an additional site in Morgan Hill. In addition to private students she teaches violin classes (K-3) at Jackson Academy of Math and Music in Morgan Hill.
I love to nurture children. One of my passions is to introduce music to children at a young age so they'll carry that love the rest of their lives. Whether that means through a group class, private violin or piano, my desire is for them to embrace the love and discipline of music which builds character, confidence and self-esteem.
