I started playing the viola when I was 8 years old. I played solo pieces, performed in quartets, chamber ensembles, and orchestras for over a decade, and then took a break for several years. In 2020, I started to play music again as a stress release from being a healthcare worker during the COVID-19 pandemic. Music is what gives me bliss and I am excited to explore new methods of music performance. I enjoy playing violin as well, and learn the string parts of popular music pieces. I would like to learn new pieces, encourage my own creativity, and explore the limits of my musical skill.
