Welcome! Private Lessons in VIOLIN and VIOLA

 Thank you for your interest in my private lesson program. As a professional performer and teacher with nearly forty years experience I aim to give you the very best advice in pursuit of your musical goals.

I began learning music on the piano at age six. I enjoyed the experience of practicing and performing and gaining knowledge of the classic works of music. Attending symphony concerts, operas, and Broadway shows during these years broadened my exposure to other instruments. So by the time I was thirteen I became interested in learning the violin. After beginning lessons I knew somehow that the violin would be my career. Within two years of intensive practice I auditioned for and was accepted in the Texas All State Orchestra. I went on to study for a professional career in violin performance at the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University. I received both Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degrees there in 1980. To read my full biography click here.

 In addition to teaching private lessons I concertize on tour and record with the White Oak Trio.  I am Concertmaster of the Victoria Symphony Orchestra and Associate Concertmaster with the Corpus Christi Symphony Orchestra . Also I am a member of the first violin section with the Laredo Philharmonic Orchestra.
