Hi! I specialize in Irish, improv, recording, and worship. I am a Classically trained violinist who performs in symphony, chamber ensembles, and string ensembles. I perform non-Classical music with bands on a regular basis. I do not need music, but record on the spot in studios or with bands live. I was the solo violinist in the movie "Bernie" with Jack Black and "Mud" with Matthew McConnaughey. I am principal second violin of the Round Rock Symphony.
I also teach private violin and piano lessons.
