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. *** Lesson Details *** I have found that students thrive in a curriculum that's to their pace, fun and conducive to creative thought. So I'm a fairly easygoing teacher. I wont chew you out, won't force you to practice scales on your head while you hold your breath. But I will level with you: Music takes commitment. The good news? It's really fun. So, let me show you the joy and reward of learning music! *** Studio Equipment *** Living Room transferred to music room: piano, computer, music stand and library, parents can sit in on lesson *** Travel Equipment *** I expect student to have instrument, music stand, any appropriate books, and tuner (or home access to computer/internet) *** Specialties *** A Suzuki method influenced program that introduces classical music and theory step-by-step while incorporating fun games and your favorite songs. Will also drill you on music theory and help you nail your first audition and performance.

Super happy with the packed lessons. Alicia makes it easy to learn and is patient. I am very surprised how far I’ve come So quickly.
Wonderful! Very engaging!
Alicia is a great violin teacher. She has a lot of patience and is really good at positive reinforcement. In the five lessons I had with her I was able to improve my technique very much, I’m very glad I decided to take lessons with her.
