Margaret Pardee (left) was one of my notable teachers when I studied at Juilliard as a Fulbright scholar. Miss Pardee was Ivan Galamian's assistant trough his teaching career. I hold a Doctoral Diploma from a National Conservatory in Italy where I learned the legendary tradition of the ITALIAN  violin school: from Vivaldi to Viotti, from Viotti to Rolla, from Rolla to Paganini, from Paganini to Sivori, from Sivori to Serato and from Serato to Gulli.
Also while studying with Kato Havas , I learned her method  to manage the stage fright for string players.

My private teaching studio is located in MANOA in a convenient, accessible area in Honolulu.

Are you a parent who is looking for a violin and viola teacher who will give you the tools to enable you to be more involved in your child's instrumental studies?

Are you currently playing the violin or the viola and want to know how to improve your tone, your technique and musicality? Are you or your children currently taking violin or viola lessons and want to make maximum progress in minimum time? Are you a professional player who is preparing the standard repertoire and orchestra excerpts for an audition and you are looking for a tutor who can revise and prepare you successfully?

If your answer is YES of any of the above questions I am the teacher you are looking for. My versatile  career with the best Orchestras of Europe  and my studies with the world's most revered teachers, have trained me to teach  students how to reach the highest standard of playing. With me, you will learn the same methods of playing as you would from the top string players, graduated from the best schools in the world.

Among of many important teachers both in US and Italy I have studied with Giusto Cappone (left), the legendary principal violist of the Berliner Philharmoniker during the golden era of Herbert Von Karajan, and the world famous DGG recordings. I also studied at the Juilliard School with Karen Tuttle, William Primrose's assistant, and William Lincer, former principal violist of the New York Philharmonic.  Both these teachers trained some of the best violists in the USA. I have also studied  with Yuri Bashmet at the Accademia Chigiana in Siena (Italy) who is one of the most famous soloists in the world of the Russian School of Viola.
During my career I have successfully won many orchestra auditions and trained many young professional players who now  occupy positions in some of the best orchestras in Europe.
Frequently I play ancient instruments like the Baroque Viola, the Viola d'Amore and the Medieval Viol. I also perform and coach in ancient styles of music.
