Become an expert violinist with guidance from a seasoned violinist whose career has spanned 40+ years
I use many methods including Suzuki, Kodaly and traditional teachings that include catered practice plans in order to accommodate each student's learning needs. I am very flexible and more than happy to discuss teaching methods and/or special needs with parents and students.
About Alethia E.

Growing up I was raised in a home full of music. My father, a graduate of the Conservatorio Nacional Superior de Musica (National conservatory of Superior Music) played piano day and night and from there my love for music blossomed. My first experience with music was at the age of 8 when I began to take piano lessons from my father. I decided to switch to violin when I was 12. I was introduced to violin thanks to the Waldorf School of San Diego and have played in the orchestra throughout all of middle school. After 8th grade I was accepted into Young Artist Symphony and played with them until 2011. My education in orchestras continued with USD Chamber Orchestra, and Youth Philharmonic Orchestra. I began to teach at the Waldorf School as an assistant orchestra teacher in 2011, and have since been teaching privately as well. My goals when teaching is to teach the appropriate techniques in order to play violin successfully and to hopefully inspire love and appreciation for music. In my experience I have learned that every student has a different way of learning therefore it is important to adjust to every student's needs. Learning should be fun but it should also be disciplined, it is important to understand that there is a time for fun and a time to be serious when learning. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me!

For my 12 year olds first lesson she really made her feel comfortable and helped her to get set up for success. She gave her practice to do through the week and is very easy to communicate with.

She is a great instructor! My 14 yr old daughter is a beginner and she has been wonderful with her. She is professional, warm, and always helpful. I don't know much about the violin, but I never have to remind my daughter to practice the music that she is given.
