Hallo! I am an American living in Berlin. My background is in linguistics and music, and I am currently writing my doctoral dissertation.

I have taught violin privately for about five years in America and China, to students ranging in age from 3-70.

Education should be appropriate to the needs and abilities of each student. I love teaching and encouraging students to set new goals and overcome themselves! I like teaching students so they can learn how to study efficiently, timewise and skillwise. Students should be able to be critical and tackle task in the most proficient way to always get the best results out of themselves. My classes will include history, music theory exercises and instrument classes.
I graduated from the pre-Univeristy level of the conservatoir of the University of Costa Rica and started and finish the first two years of a double major degree in Music education and violin performance before moving to Germany to study.
I also assisted the program in the U.S.A for the Sewanee Summer Program under the teaching of Lin He now serving as the Associate Professor of Violin at the Louisiana State University School of Music doctorate from the Eastman School of Music
