WATCH VIDEOS OF MY STUDENTS!

These are unedited videos recorded in lessons, in rehearsal, and in recital.  Each underlined item is a separate link to YouTube.  When you've finished watching a video, just return to this page to connect to more. 

New videos are marked with .

Enjoy!

Please note: Youtube is now utilizing a system of Dynamic Range Compression, which is of course terrible for videos of classical music.  Unfortunately, there's nothing I can do about this.
