Tetra String Quartet

I feel very fortunate to balance a performing and teaching career. I spend my days rehearsing and performing with the Tetra String Quartet and my afternoons teaching students from across the valley! Tetra is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization that is creating opportunities that link performance with public service in Arizona. We are committed to engaging audiences from every corner of the community, which reflects our belief that access to the arts is an essential human right. Our Play Out! service initiative brings music to underserved communities such as the Phoenix VA Hospital, Maricopa Juvenile Detention Centers, and Florence Crittenton (a home for at-risk girls). We also created the Tempe-based Azure Family Concerts, which are fun, friendly and engaging performances tailored to children and young adults who are on the autism spectrum or have similar challenges.

My involvement with Tetra gives my students unique volunteer opportunities, such as helping with the instrument petting zoo for Azure Family Concerts and performing for underserved communities. My quartet also offers 2 Summer Chamber Music Workshops , which provide 9 intensive days of chamber music, pop song arranging, fiddling, and improvisation to string students grades 6-12.
