This summer, I am participating and performing in a very fun and inspiring violin program at the Heifetz Institute PEG in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
I have been working with faculty members from Juilliard and The Manhattan School of Music as well as other talented young musicians. I am making new friends and enjoying chamber music, fiddling - and still finding time to audition for Broadway and film and practice my other instruments!

I started to play the violin at age 4 and have been studying ever since. I study with both Dr. Linda Sinanian of Queens College and Dr. Cyrus Forough of Carnegie Mellon University.
For the last 4 years, I have played violin and piano in the New York State School Music Association Spring Festival. Clips of some of my performances appear below.
