Skype Lessons & Private Lessons:

I give private lessons and chamber music coachings  in person and via Skype.  I recommend that private students already have experienced my teaching by either subscribing to MyTalentForge.com or attending my in-person master classes or workshops. If you have questions about whether private lessons are right for you, please contact me.
