I'm a member of Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, an associate member of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, and a former member of the Arditti, Penderecki, and Chester String Quartets.  I have 27 years of teaching experience, at Harvard, Princeton, NYU, Wilfrid Laurier University and many summer festivals.  I have recorded chamber music extensively, and am featured as solo viola in a CD recording in Strauss' Don Quixote for the Aparte label.  I am fluent in French and German, and I can teach in Spanish and Italian as well.  I am passionate about classical music of all periods, including contemporary music.  In addition to all kinds of viola repertoire, I am happy to teach chamber music parts and orchestral excerpts. 

I will tailor my teaching to your specific goals.  I believe in the central importance of regular performance to consolidate progress.  In addition to sharing technical and musical information, I will teach you successful practice methods, so you can be as productive as possible in your self-directed time.  I will also discuss historical background where appropriate and I can guide your listening to enhance your musical range.
