About Cecilia G.

I have a Master degree in violin performance from UND and I am finishing (ABD) a Doctoral’s program at the University of Minnesota. Also I taught violin to students of all ages, and performed as a soloist, a recitalist and a chamber musician. I had played in Japan, China, Brazil, Argentina, Italy and all over the United States. As a member of the World Orchestra I had toured in Europe, Mexico, and South Africa.
Nowadays in Argentina I specialized in tango style and I am currently playing in the National Orchestra and the Buenos Aires Tango Orchestra, among other groups and chamber projects.
I love teaching and I am very passionate about violin playing.

She is very patient with my son as he is a 1st time learner. She explains thoroughly and never shows frustration nor judgment while doing so. She continually gives praise throughout the practice but will give pointers when needed, all in a friendly way. My son looks forward to his weekly lessons and loves learning from Cecilia.

I've known Cecilia for a very long time, both as students together and as a professional, and I can vouch for her professionalism, her love for music, and her ability to pass on knowledge. She will be a wonderful teacher for all your needs regardless of your level.

Cecilia was the best!
Our daughter was in highschool in Minneapolis when she took lessons with Cecilia who was completing her PhD and she was so patient and kind in her teaching.
While taking lessons with Cecilia, our daughter moved up a number of levels in the orchestra and also had a lot of fun playing!
We highly recommend her for Violin lessons at any level.
