$100 - $250 per event
I am involved in many local musical organizations including The Venice Symphony (principal viola), The North Port Symphony (Concertmaster), The Charlotte Symphony, Palm Strings Quartet, and Sun City Chamber Players. I play often for weddings, parties, religious services, and concerts in many different ensembles and combination of players. I will travel most anywhere to play but travel costs start to price me out of weddings it seems north of Tampa and south of Ft. Myers.
My repertoire is quite extensive and covers many genres of music. I do my own arrangements for string ensembles and can fill most requests. Being that I play in many organizations, I work closely with a lot of fine musicians and love to also play weddings with flute, harp or guitar.

I come from a family of musicians and have received most of my training and experience through them, private instruction, the Sarasota Orchestra and its youth symphony. I began playing violin at the age of seven. When I moved to Florida in the 5th grade, I was placed in the high school orchestra because I already had three years of experience. I received several years of private instruction from Judith Merrill who was Sarasota Orchestra's principal 2nd violin at the time. Through high school I was the concertmaster of Venice High School's orchestra, the assistant concertmaster of Sarasota's Youth Symphony (Florida West Coast Symphony Youth Orchestra at the time), played violin in The Venice Symphony and viola in the Florida West Coast Symphony (now known as the Sarasota Orchestra). I received private instruction on violin and piano and practiced at least one hour a day on each. Between the four orchestras rehearsals and performances, private lessons and practice, I played violin or viola every minute outside of eat, sleep, math and social studies... Almost like I do now except instead of math and social studies, I'm running my own business. :-)
