Violin, Music Theory
I began playing violin at age 4 over 20 years ago and have been teaching since age 17. I studied at the Newark Community School of the Arts for 12 years and in the Greater Newark Youth Orchestra where I played at the New Jersey PAC and Historic Symphony Hall. I've taken master classes from John Smith (teacher to Regina Carter), and taught by global performer Aiko Goto and several teachers from Juliard including Hiroshima Shimura, I have performed at festivals and weddings and taught across the country in orchestras, quartets and music camps. Most of my teaching has been with private students age range has been from 3-67

I have a Master's Degree (2012) in teaching English to other language speakers, and Bachelors in Music Education (2010), both from Florida Atlantic University, as well as degree in violin performance from Poland.
I studied piano in Poland for 10 years & taught both piano & violin for over 20 years. I also teach flute & cello for the past 5 years, as I studied them during my Music Education program.
I teach music for over 24 years using the traditional and Suzuki methods. I am fan of the Essential Elements 2000 for violin, viola or cello, and the Alfred's Piano Library for piano. Alfred's piano library can be used for any age as they also have books especially made for adult learners.
I personalize every lesson, and always set goals for my students. Most of my violin students are members of the Florida Youth Orchestra and my piano students participate in Pompano Beach competition and the annual Piano Guild.
I teach any age and any level, and always stress that learning a new instrument is very similar to learning a new language, needs a lot of patience, persistence and repetitions. My lessons are customized to my students needs, and are work in progress as they needs may change over time. However, music can give my students instant gratification by letting them play favorite songs. I always encourage my students to tell me about their music preferences, so I can incorporate them in their music lessons.

Alicia has been playing the violin since she can remember thanks to her very talented musical family. Because of their efforts she received her first exposure to loving and teaching music at an early age through attending and later assisting her mother's Suzuki string program. They also afforded her the opportunity to learn with some of the finest violin teachers Miami has to offer.
A proud alumni of Miami's public arts programs, including those of Southwood Middle School, Coral Reef Senior High and the Greater Miami Youth Symphony, Alicia encourages all of her school-age students to explore their options of participating in the various youth arts organizations in the community.
In addition to her 15+ years training in violin technique and classical repertoire, she also has had almost 10 years of classical piano instruction and has had the privilege to perform classical, jazz, blues, latin and pop music from coast to coast and in Europe.

I have my bachelors in Music Education. I have received the highest honors in state competitions and I have had the pleasure of working with some of the top university orchestras in the southeast, including the University of South Florida Symphony Orchestra and the University of Tampa Orchestra. I have also been fortunate enough to study with some of the great nationally and internationally known Suzuki instructors, whose knowledge and techniques I will share with my students. When I am not teaching, I enjoy music making in my community. But what I enjoy most is being able to teach the delight of music making to my students
My hope is to provide an educational environment that fosters the artistic, intellectual, and personal growth of my students and prepare them to embark on successful careers and productive lives as artists and citizens. I believe that every child should be given an avenue of expression and the access to responsible, well-trained, and compassionate individuals who can aid and guide their artistic development. As a teacher, I feel that it is my duty to continuously elevate my educational and artistic standards and supply my students with the sensitivity to admire and appreciate education, hard-work, and the human-spirit.

I have been classically trained for 20 years and have been teaching for a decade. I have been trained by various violin schools such as Russian and American style of teaching. I have embraced all of them and I am not limited to one style of teaching. I like to bring humor and encouragement to every lesson possible. I strongly believe that those are the keys and enjoyment of learning music while discovering your own potential as a human being.
I have performed as soloist with some of the world’s most renowned symphony orchestras. At the age of fifteen, I made my solo debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra, and just a few years later with the Boston Pops in a three-concert series that paid tribute to Harry Ellis Dickinson, conducted by Keith Lockhart. I had won numerous competitions such as the 2002 Boston Symphony Concerto Competition, 2001 Massachusetts String Teachers Association Competition, 2000 Mann Center Concerto Competition, 2000 Greenfield Concerto competition Honorable Mention, and most recently the DePaul Concerto Competition. I have performed in masterclasses with such artists as Aaron Rosand, Zakhar Bron, Nai Yuan Hu and Joseph Silverstein. In my summers she has attended festivals such as the Summit Music Festival and the Montecito Music Festival.
I traveled to Philadelphia at the age of fourteen from Taiwan to attend the Temple University Music Preparatory Division for Gifted Young Musicians as a student of Elissa Kolijonen. I later attended high school at Massachusetts’s Walnut Hill School for the Arts as a student of Lynn Chang. In 2002, I was accepted to the famed Curtis Institute of Music as a student of Ida Kavafian and the Guaneri String Quartet’s own Arnold Steinhardt. After graduating the Curtis Institute, I moved to Chicago to pursue her Master of Music Degree at Depaul University with Ilya Kaler. I just finished studying at Lynn University with professor Elmar Oliveira. I am currently a section violin member of Miami City Ballet.

Learning to play the violin is extremely popular as a first or second instrument for students of all ages. This is probably because of the instrument's versatility, as well as the beauty of its sound. And with the right teacher, itâs easy to get started learning to play!
It can be difficult to begin learning the violin alone, due to the importance of posture, technique and other aspects that can only be taught by a qualified instructor. Similarly, intermediate students often experience problems that are hard to rectify, or struggle to learn new skills such as the different hand positions, vibrato and harmonics. Taking private violin lessons can make a huge difference, and TakeLessons is here to help!
