I offer individual lessons for regional Greek violin technique. The lessons are geared for intermediate to advanced violin students, but experience with Greek music is not required.

Violin is the primary melodic instrument of Greek music, so there are many different regional styles and techniques. The objective of these lessons is to learn basic violin techniques from distinct regions across Greece. The lessons focus on rhythm/bowing and ornamentation, which are taught through traditional tunes, and include a basic introduction to maqam and moria.

About Aya S.

Authentic, tasteful, and experienced, Aya Safiya is an accomplished violinist who has performed at renowned venues such as the Great American Music Hall, as well as festivals in the US and in Greece. Aya began studying both Suzuki classical and traditional Greek violin when she was 7. She has made numerous trips to Greece to study with master violinists such as Nicos Chatzopoulos and Nikos Oikonomidhis. At age 15 She started teaching individual lessons and group workshops at world music camps in California, and in more recent years crafted her "regional Greek violin technique" workshop which she conducted at the Freight & Salvage Coffee House in Berkeley in 2017. She continues to hold occasional workshops and regularly teaches private lessons.
