About author and violin teacher
I am a Bel Canto style violinist, descendent of Jean-Delphin Alard and Leopold Auer through Alfred Loewenguth of the French School, with influences from the American School through Sylvian Iticovici, a pupil of Ivan Galamian at the Juilliard School, and influences from the Russian School.
Once upon a time, I took my first violin lesson with beloved mentor Alfred Lœwenguth (1911-1983), then professor at the Paris Conservatory, director and founder of O.J.A.L. and of his very own Conservatoire Indépendant. I moved to the U.S. seven years later and earned a Music Performance degree from Webster University in St. Louis. Through my High-School years, medievalist and musicologist Jean Maillard patiently informed and influenced my understanding of music theory and history.
I have played in, and for, numerous orchestras, ensembles, dignitaries and venues locally and internationally – United States, Europe, Canada and China. I have also done much studio recording and some composing for commercials and TV series. In the 90s you may have heard me play for BurgerKing, SixFlags, Monsanto, PokeMon – for many products I purposefully misspell and am not endorsing.
