I’ve joined the viola faculty at Mannes, one of America’s most prestigious conservatories. Having taught a masterclass there in November 2018, I am thrilled to say that I was asked to start teaching viola there shortly thereafter. So here we are, it’s now public. I’ll be honest, this is something I had wanted for a while, and when I heard the news, I almost teared up.
I am now officially on the roster and I listened to entrance auditions last week. I’ve always wanted an opportunity to dedicate myself to teaching and to build my own studio. Teaching is hard, I have no illusions about just how much work it is to find an optimal way to reach a student and to help them find their way. But I am cherishing this opportunity and cannot wait to get started.
