Hello, my name is Andrea. I am a student at Yale Law School and I have been playing violin for close to 20 years. Both my parents were music teachers and my dad is a professor at Westminster Choir College, so I grew up listening to the great classical composers like Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky, and Debussy. I have experience playing violin in ensembles including New Jersey All State Orchestra and Interlochen World Youth Symphony Orchestra. I taught violin prior to law school and have continued to teach here in New Haven. Teaching is rewarding for me because I enjoy helping students grow as musicians and because I consider sharing music with others to be very valuable. I look forward to sharing music with you!+ Read More
Our experiences with Andrea have been great. I found her to be patient and skilled. She's extremely flexible and has gone out of her way to make sure our son has the correct materials for his lessons. Andrea is friendly, kind and a great teacher.
Andrea was a great teacher! Admittedly I'm not a particularly talented musician, but she's incredibly accommodating and friendly—not to mention an amazing violinist!
Not only is Andrea an exceptional violinist, but she's also a wonderful teacher. I had never taken any violin lessons before going to her, and after several classes, I felt comfortable tuning the instrument reading sheet music, playing scales, and playing some songs. Andrea is friendly and encouraging with a keen attention to detail. Her positive energy made me look forward to our weekly lessons.+ Read More
