I received my formal training in string pedagogy as a teacher in the University of Texas String Project, perhaps the most comprehensive program of its kind in North America. Phyllis Young, director of the University of Texas String Project for 35 years, was my cello teacher during my studies at the University of Texas. I studied conducting with Henry Charles Smith, Cornelius Eberhardt, Sung Kwak, Walter Dulcoux, and Fiora Contino.
