Violin Studies at Western Illinois University


The School of Music at Western Illinois University provides undergraduate and graduate violin students performance opportunities in solo recitals, concerti, chamber music, and orchestral ensembles. With approximately 250 music majors and 43 full-time faculty in the School of Music, a ratio of 6:1, there is an ideal atmosphere of accessibility and consistency for our students. The School of Music is an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Music.

Currently, my violin studio at Western Illinois University is comprised of undergraduate and graduate students from Europe, Asia, and the United States. My students are winners of prestigious regional and national competitions in the USA including the 2014 national first prize and the 2017 third prize winner of the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) Young Artist String Competition. They also won concerto competitions at Western Illinois University and Brevard Summer Festival. My students have gone on to receive graduate assistantships for masters and doctorate programs at some of the best schools of music. Also, they were awarded stipends at prestigious summer festivals such as Brevard Summer Festival and Manchester Music Festival. If you have any questions about violin studies at WIU, please do not hesitate to email me. I would be happy to schedule a campus visit and a complimentary violin lesson for you.
