Professional violinist and teaching artist in Phoenix metro area
Hello to all artists,
I titled this post "Old Beginnings" because although this is my first attempt of any sort to promote myself formally, and so very publicly, as a career musician and educator, it is not new territory for me.
As an individual who has made the conscious decision to follow her love of an artform as a career choice, like so so so so many others have done and will continue to do, there is always a necessity to advocate for the legitimacy of the trade--the path. So for many years now, I have found myself being a defender for the legitimacy of musician-by-trade in society. However, it feels very different, now that I am not just advocating for all artists everywhere, but also for myself as an individual.
So please, do not mistake this website as a attempt for me to stroke my own ego, or to try and build myself up as something spectaculary wonderful and genius. I'm not. I'm a very humble musician. BUT I will be adding recordings, videos, photos, press, references, etc. along the way for projects that I've very proudly been a part of, as a way to advocate for myself and the path I have chosen.
I would love to hear from you. I must find a way to put up a "guestbook"....in the mean time, please don't be shy in filling out the form on the "Contact" page, even if to just say hi...or please, make suggestions!
