Music has always been a part of my life and I am so excited to be teaching music to elementary and middle schoolers here at Hemingway! In 4th grade I started learning the violin and still continue playing today. Primarily I am a classically trained violinist. I studied with Craig Purdy at BSU and Alexander Meshibovsky (a former student of Jascha Heifetz) in New York City. I also love to fiddle and I started taking fiddling lessons when I was in 5th grade.
I am originally from Idaho and am happy to be back home. I feel like I grew up in the mountains. My father is also a teacher and as a family we spent every summer either backpacking, camping, or sailing. I would often find myself playing violin and making music with others at a campfire. My husband and I recently lived in NYC for 12 years where I taught Pre-K and violin k-12 at Riverdale Country School. We both loved NYC but we decided to move back to Idaho after the birth of our daughter Elisabeth in order to be near her grandparents. Before I came to Ernest Hemingway I was teaching choir and musical theatre at Nyssa Middle and High schools.
