I love tailoring lessons to my students! Music is personal and I want to make sure you're learning what you're interested in or need to learn in order to prepare you for auditions or keep up in groups you play in. I always ask students for a list of music they're listening to or want to learn - nothing's off limits!

Patient, good humored, and knows her stuff. This was a brilliant first lesson and I am thrilled with the outcome, already on to a full song challenging me to do transitions and tempo. She is great at working with the student to find out where they need help and when they can go fast.

As a dynamic exchange, Sofia imparted a masterclass for my students at the Escuela Comunal de Música de Orosi in Cartago, Costa Rica.
It was a very musically enriching experience for each of my kids, who are litle by little growing as violinists.
Sofia provided a great variety of recommendations through her knowledge as interpreter and teacher as well as cautivated everyone in the room with her passion and energy for music.
Sofia is definitely an excellent guide to learn how to play violin and the musical skills it entails.

"Jocelyn came to our home and made my daughter very comfortable with her first private viola lesson. She was friendly and patient. She quickly spotted technical issues with my daughter's playing and suggested appropriate materials for her to practice. We've only had one lesson so far, but I think this is going to be a good "match!""
