Academic Teaching

I consider teaching music a passion and a calling, and I love getting to know my students as human beings with real lives, hopes, fears, and ambitions. Whether I am teaching music history, musicianship skills, or the violin, my goal is to share my love of the subject such that my students are inspired to learn more and discover the joy that can come from a deep intellectual and emotional engagement with music.

Excerpts from previous student evaluations of my teaching in music history and musicianship classes at Durham University, UNC-Greensboro, and UNC-Chapel Hill can be viewed in the Teaching Evaluations section.
