VIOLINIST, EDUCATOR AND COMPOSER
VOTED #1 IN THE DOWNBEAT CRITICS POLL (“RISING STARS/VIOLIN”)
Where it all began...
When I was 16, a kid in my school orchestra brought tapes to school of original songs he made.
Kids hovered around him, unimpressed with my Paganini caprices.
I remember thinking, “I’m just not a creative person like him”.
That thought crushed me.
I wondered, “What if I could learn to be a more Creative musician”?
I joined a rock band. Then blues, Jazz, folk, gospel, pop, Latin… you name it, I did it. I was committed to finding my own thing and I eventually did.
This led to forging my own career path, developing a teaching method, and training teachers and freelancers to go beyond the old teaching and orchestral career model.
