Students: Beginning to advanced
Who have you studied with?
I studied at the School for Creative and Performing Arts and had the opportunity to be coached in ensemble playing by Norman E. Johns of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.
Why did you take up this particular instrument?
I have always had a love of making music and making up melodies. The versatility of the violin has kept me coming back for more.
Are there recommended natural abilities a student should have?
Just the love of music and the willingness to learn. That's all anyone needs to play.
What musical styles are you versed in? Which ones are your favorites?
I play classical, pop, rock, and blues. I can't pick a favorite - they all have such different elements that they don't even compare.
