I am a full-time, classically trained ethnofolk musician from Santa Fe, NM. My area of expertise is primarily in Klezmer and Eastern European music. I have been teaching both private lessons and youth ensembles for over a decade. I use time-tested methodology from classical technique books with all of my students from beginner through advanced. I also take individualized approaches to more advanced students whose interest may expand further than the classical world. In particular, I am well-versed in teaching world folk styles and jazz.

About Liv O.

Hi! I'm Liv. I am a full-time musician from Santa Fe, NM. I can teach you violin, viola, trombone, trumpet, mandolin, accordion, piano, and/or recorders in both classical and ethnofolk styles. The only thing I can't teach you is how to play all of those instruments at once (I've tried, it's not a good idea). I have a vast experience performing Klezmer and Eastern European folk music, but I have also performed Celtic, jazz, blues, latin, tango, funk, and more... Oh and classical. But that's boring. JUST KIDDING classical is rad if it's taught in a way that's fun!
