Every child can learn to play the violin beautifully, and can have fun doing it.


Nora keeps a private violin studio at her home in Bed Stuy Brooklyn and is also the Head of the Violin Department at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music. She makes sure kids feel safe, loved and understood by fostering the development of the whole child.  As a registered Suzuki violin teacher she upholds the child-centered principles of the “mother-tongue” philosophy: every lesson is joyful, celebrating the unique parent-child bond; every child sets his/her own pace of learning.

Having spent over a decade teaching violin in public schools, charter schools, independent schools and music schools, Nora has a depth and breadth of experience that allows her to hand-tailor her teaching approach to each individual child.

Nora teaches out of her home on a tree-lined street in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn in a funny old brownstone, and currently has openings for children interested in learning violin, ages 3+.
