First of all, on the performance front, I will be giving a recital at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Washington, DC with some wonderful friends of mine: Dr. Kathleen DeJardin, the director of music at Trinity, pianist Michael Delfin, and violist Lillian Green. The recital will be in November and I will post the exact date on the website as soon as possible!
In the meantime, to hear me play, you can attend Mass at Holy Trinity, where I play at the Young Adult Community masses and bounce between other services. On August 24, I will be playing at the 11:30 am Mass - our wonderful organist Timothy Duhr and I will play a beautiful prelude piece and then I'll play a solo postlude. I'm in the very beginning stages of working on some other performance opportunities for this season and will keep the website updated.
Now for the really big news: there are now TWO different ways you can study violin with me this fall! I've joined the faculty of Potomac Arts Academy in Fairfax, Virginia and will also be building my own studio in Arlington, Virginia. I'm very excited about both of these jobs and the fact that teaching in multiple locations will enable me to be more accessible to a wider range of students. Teaching private lessons to students of varying ages and levels has always been a passion of mine and I am absolutely thrilled to be starting my first year of full-time teaching. I'm here in the Northern Virginia area to stay, and teaching lessons is my first priority. My goal is to build two permanent, thriving studios and to provide a lot of wonderful experiences and quality violin training to everyone who comes through my door.
