It gives me great pleasure to teach the violin camp during the Summer Music Institute 2016 at Western! This summer, I will also teach a technique class and a Masterclass during the orchestra camp. The camp will focus on the development of musical and technical aspects of violin performance.

The practice routine will include warming-up exercises for left and right hand, scales, etudes,  and the assigned repertoire for various upcoming performances such as juries, auditions, competitions, recitals and solo concerti with orchestra.

The violin camp will conclude with a public performance of works studied during the camp. Family and friends are cordially invited!
