My name is Araya and I have over ten years of experience playing the violin. Aside from teaching, I am a songwriter and a musician. I am also learning to play the guitar and piano.

I have played in local orchestras such as The Youth Symphony of Southern Oregon.

I specialize in teaching beginner violin. Laying a solid foundation is super important in my lessons. I will teach you how to read music if you don’t already know how to. We will also cover music theory, scales, and different finger and bowing techniques.

"You cannot go wrong with Chau as your instructor!

In the time that I met with Chau, I learned so much. I normally don't feel very comfortable with strangers, especially when I'm in a position to mess up, but with Chau I felt totally accepted and successful. We became fast friends, and I enjoyed every lesson we had together. Thanks to the instruction from Chau I discovered that I was capable of things I had only imagined doing. When I got to school this fall my vocal instructor was very impressed with a voice that I didn't have before I met Chau. I owe any success and vocal quality I have to Chau; without her I don't think I would have the vocal confidence that I have now. Chau has a unique talent for taking even the most unlikely voices and people, and helping them discover just what they are capable of. I really never though that I would be able to sing anywhere or, feel OK singing, anywhere but in my shower, however when Chau came into my life I feel like a different me came out. I am so thankful that I met Chau, she is truly one of the most talented and kind people I have ever met; she is upfront and honest because she really cares and isn't just looking to make a buck. If you're looking for a vocal instructor that really cares about helping you develop as a person and as a vocalist, Chau is definitely worth meeting."

My favorite part of working with Geronimo was his attention to details and ability to help me meet my goals as a musician. He is extremely knowledgeable about music technique and able to guide his students through each step of dissecting songs to bring out the best dynamics. I feel that he is an excellent choice for students of all ages that want to blossom in their abilities."
