Overview

Hi there! I'm a music teacher and private academic tutor for students with learning disabilities, but I have taught in every capacity you can think of! Since I graduated with a degree in music (viola) with honors from UC Berkeley in 2010 I have been a full time substitute, classroom music/orchestra/private teacher with 42 private students a week and a k-12 academic tutor, all in public and private schools with both high and low income students from various demographics. But more to the point, I love teaching and tutoring. I believe in giving back the quality education I've received, and there's nothing more fulfilling than helping someone else reach their goals. My students tell me I'm a fun, engaging teacher who is understanding and accommodating to their needs, but not afraid crack down and be strict when necessary. I am currently in the process of moving to Seattle to attend the University of Washington for my Master's in Music Education and Cognition. I look forward to meeting you!

It was my 6-year-old daughter's 1st violin lesson today with Giuliana. She was fantastic. I am extremely pleased with our choice of instructors and look forward to my daughter learning the violin with this instructor.

I had the pleasure of having Ms. Conti as a music teacher at Brighton Private Elementary School. As the principal, I was amazed at her ability to instill in children her love for music. I was also inspired by her understanding of the power music plays in our lives and more specifically in our learning of all subject matter. She is amazing, talented, and kind.

Giuliana is a wonderful teacher. She has been both patient and thorough as I stumble through the basics of learning the violin. It's a great help that she has also been flexible with the lesson sessions, as I often deal with an irregular schedule.

Outstanding Teacher

Patient and outstanding teacher. Was able to help me understand the intricacies of the instrument through strategies that I could understand. I couldn't have gotten as far as I have without her!
