I love to teach and I have devoted my life to obtaining the highest music education possible. Learning to play an instrument is fun but it is also challenging. My lessons consist of technique and general music training that include aural skills and music theory. My lessons are a lot of fun because I have high standards, but also maintain a light hearted atmosphere. I teach violin and viola from beginning to advanced levels. My students have ranged in age from 3 to 65 years old and I feel that I can teach students at any age.
If you want to include learning to play the violin or viola in your life then I would be a great choice for a teacher. Thank you. Elisa

Before Elisa moved to Ventura, CA, she was a master student and taught in IP piano school and Kwong Kow Chinese School in Boston, MA. My daughter, Sarina, was one of her students. My daughter loves her so much and made good progress when Elisa was teaching her. Elisa made Sarina relax and comfortable so that she was enjoying the learning process; she emphasized on skill and poses, she tried hard to help the students to get to the best they could. She is reliable as you can talk with her about the timing change and make up lessions. She came to our house to say goodbye and hug Sarina before she left. She is a great teacher that you can count on and you will enjoy her teaching.

I am from Colombia and moved to the USA in 1999. Growing up in an immigrant home, I mastered translation and interpreting in English and Spanish vice-versa as my family's livelyhood depended on my contributions. This led me into strong interest in language learning, researching into neuroscience, linguistics, biology, and development psychology. This also led me to further developing learning methods and techniques though strategic design, neuro-plasticity, and natural learning interfaces to teach the English language to beginner
I also worked as project manager for United Data Technologies, working on a concept proof to gain greater insight into integrating technology into K-12 curriculum. I later ventured into entreprenuership co-owning and investing in agricultural and construction companies, spending some time away from the classroom and my independent studies. I became a mother recently and have settled down to teach again from my home based practice.
Fun fact about me: I have conservatory level studies in the fine arts, began oil painting at age 6 and taught children and adults oil painting in my adolecence.
