ABOUT

Hi! I’m a classically trained violinist who has been playing and teaching for about 20 plus years. I have my masters in violin performance from Brooklyn College, and I’m looking to play music with people in styles other than classical. (Of course I LOVE classical music) but I’m looking to expand my horizons. I did some light Celtic gigging in undergrad and really enjoyed doing improv. I’ve been told I have a pretty good ear for picking up melodies and I really enjoy arranging music for my students’, even though I don’t consider myself a lyricist or a composer per se. I would love to try writing melodies with someone who has lyrics or who is a skilled lyricist.
