The following pages are performances by my students and myself. I hope you enjoy them.
As a teacher, it has been very rewarding for me to see the progress of my students as evidenced by my instruction. I have enjoyed playing the Beethoven “Spring” Sonata and the Paganini Violin Concerto, which is one of my favorite concertos. The “Spring” sonata and the Paganini Concerto are very melodious in my opinion and I find it easy to be more expressive with melodic pieces. Therefore, I believe it is important in my teaching to recommend tuneful pieces to my students so they enjoy it more. In my opinion, when students enjoy the pieces they are playing, they will want to practice them more and their musicianship will shine through their playing.
