I first started music with piano at the age of four. In middle school, I found myself wanting more to do with music, and I started classical guitar and violin. I quickly became invested in learning classical guitar, though I joined the Long Island Youth Orchestra, a string quartet, and my high school chamber orchestra for violin. Recently, I discovered more guitar performance opportunities, however, advancing to semifinals in the Long Island Guitar Competition and performing as a solo guitarist in the Long Island Youth Orchestra at our past concert. Additionally, I was accepted to Peabody Conservatory at Johns Hopkins University and will be studying classical guitar there in the coming fall. I look forward to continuing my studies with Professor Viloteau.
