I began teaching viola lessons privately 5 years ago and have had as many as 40 students at one time. I have had many beginner students of all ages, and welcome students of any age or level. I approach each one of my students individualistically, focusing on the kind of music that interests and excites them most, while also providing material and exercises to help strengthen the students’ musicianship and technical proficiency on the instrument. I believes in bettering my student’s abilities through encouragement and positive reinforcement, guiding them to find a love and commitment to music. I understand that above all else, music should feel fun and rewarding and serve as a way to express yourself. If you're not having fun, you're missing the point! I have taught classical music, jazz, fiddle, and pop, and have a background in the Suzuki Method

About Livia A.

I am a violinist of 21 years formally trained in both classical and jazz music. I graduated from the University of Maryland in 2015, where I received my Bachelor of Music degree in violin performance, studying under performer and pedagogue Dr. James Stern (D.M.A., The Juilliard School.) I've been a professional gigging musician for 10 years and have played in concerts, theater productions, weddings, and more.

Although I grew up playing mainly classical music, I also enjoy playing jazz, rock, ragtime, Irish and American fiddle, and popular music, and I encourage my students to branch out when it comes to what type of music they are learning. I have performed with numerous orchestras and bands, and currently play with the Hoagies, a traditional swing group. l also love to go out on Pearl Street in Boulder to busk.

Livia was great with my daughter! She has a wonderful personality and made the lesson really enjoyable.

Livia was my sons violin teacher for 3 years. We couldn’t have asked for a better teacher. My son started when he was in third grade with a different teacher, and it was not a good match. Livia came and met my son and they clicked right away. I asked my son (now in 7th grade) what to say in this review, he said that Livia is a great teacher, he learned a lot, and he had tons of fun. She has a laid back and patient manner. Because of her I believe he will have a lifelong love of violin. I give her my highest recommendation.
