I offer violin (all levels) and beginners piano lessons from my home studio in Noe Valley. My teaching philosophy is student-centered, with equal focus on solid foundational training and improvisational music-making. Above all, I emphasize a love for sound, musical curiosity and the notion that everything is possible with sustained practice. I empower my students with the affirming belief that a world of music is within each and every one of us. I have a variety of instruments from around the world that we use to explore multiple musical possibilities during lessons. When requested, I can also teach in the following languages: Farsi, Spanish, French.
