"I work tirelessly with all of my students on forming a clear concept of sound that has core and conviction, and on using their bodies efficiently and effectively. I have accrued a number of exercises to build awareness of breathing, arm height, usage of arm weight, and proper bow placement that are easily applicable to students of all levels."
