I am a professional violinist with many years of experience in performing, and teaching in all areas of music. I earned my Bachelors of Music from the University of Akron and earned experience there as a Violin Teaching Assistant and Theory and History Tutor, and am currently working towards my Masters in Performance and Suzuki Pedagogy at The Hartt School of Music at the University of Hartford.
When students take lessons with me, they can expect to learn something new every week about the violin, technical abilities, how to create music that tells a story, and most importantly, about themselves and their own creative and learning abilities. I aim to incorporate all these elements every single week so students feel accomplished about the time they spend with me, and walk away knowing how to continue improving on their own until the next lesson.
I have worked with students at all ages and levels - from young students who are just beginning their musical journey to more advanced students preparing for youth orchestra and music school auditions to older adults who wish to continue improving their skills or pick up new ones! Whatever your goal is whenever you pick up your instrument, I am here to help you achieve those goals and work towards future ones as well. I can't wait to help you on your journey!

Daniella is an exceptional teacher who is able to communicate her ideas very clearly to where it is easy for the student to understand. I feel that I have really grown as a violinist from each lesson that I’ve had and I’m able to take what she’s given me and apply it to my playing.Show More
