Hi my name is Glorimar I'm from Puerto Rico but now I'm living in Chicago. My Dad is a musician and like every musician who have kids he had the idea of teaching me piano since I was 6 years old. The truth is that I fell in love with the violin when I was 12 years old in a music camp and I started to take violin lessons and since the very first day I loved so much the violin class that I told my Mom that I wanted to be a great violin teacher just like mine. Once I graduated from High School I went straight to the Music Conservatory of Puerto Rico, where I received a Bachelor Degree of Music with a concentration in Instrumental Music Education. I've been a private violin teacher since 2007, every time I see the face of a kid light up when he or she is playing the violin for first time is my favorite part of been a teacher. My goals are to do my Masters Degree in Music Education with a concentration in String Pedagogy at the Northwestern University, that's why I moved from Puerto Rico.

My recent history begins from my graduation from McBain Public High School in Michigan, where I received my diploma in 2005.
• 2005-2008 As soon as high school graduation was over, I was on tour almost non-stop with Deja Normal (Mike Mains and the Branches) Arescyn (Static Factory Records) playing the piano/bass/vocals and taking an intimate role with the song and lyric writing. Tens of thousands of miles traveled with hundreds of performances from the East coast to the West to play the smallest of venues tucked away in the woods of West Virginia to major music events such as Vans Warped Tour dates.
• 2008-2010 Left the touring road to start an event lighting company (Light it Up/ EDC Productions/GOBI Project), which lead me to Chicago where I ran my business efficiently, while still practicing music.
• 2010-2012 Ended my lighting business and became a part time student at Columbia College Chicago pursuing degrees in music composition and piano performance. By making new connections, I began teaching at RMAC and taking on creative music projects to compose music for student films. (Films are available upon request)
• 2013- Present I Now my repertoire includes Bach, Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Chopin, Debussy, and more. Studying with the masters of the field such as Columbia College Head of the Composition Dept. Dr. Marcos Balter, Dr. Ilya Levinson, University of Chicago Piano Performance Dr. Amy Briggs, and many others continue to share their great insight to the fine details of music and life.
I am very excited about my future in music within the educational realm, by the magnificent challenge that it provides. Hopefully, by sharing my perspective with my friends, colleagues, students, we can share the great feeling of accomplishment together.
