A first violinist of the Grammy-winning Los Angeles Opera, I am also a devoted teacher who curates productive and fun lessons for students of all ages and levels! Lessons plans are customized and designed to fit your goals, with a focus on building a solid and healthy foundation.

My goal in teaching is to help students develop not only better self-discipline and concentration, but also sensitivity, confidence, humility, as well as a deep appreciation for music.

I have trained in string pedagogy at the Peabody Conservatory, have over five years of teaching experience, and am fluent in English and Cantonese.

About Lucinda C.

As a firm believer that music is an essential and beautiful part of our lives, I cannot wait to share with you what I have learned in my 20+ years of studying the violin!

A little bit about myself:
- B.M., Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University
- M.M. Rice University
- Trained in String Pedagogy through Mimi Zweig's fundamental principle of violin teaching

When I am not teaching, you can find me:
- performing in the LA Opera as a tenured violinist
- working as a studio musician, recording soundtracks for movies, video games, etc.
- I have even performed on a cruise ship!

Students who work with me can expect to improve at a steady pace while building a solid foundation, with a focus on developing technique that promotes physical freedom and flexibility.

I look forward to meeting with you!

In just this short amount of time that I have had lessons with Ms. Chiu, she has improved my awareness of mistakes and the wrong things to do greatly. She has already taught me me many extremely useful things that I had never even heard of before and they have all helped improved my playing! I know that after every lesson, I will have a lot of useful advice to implement into my practice.

If you are looking for a violin teacher, then look no further. We are so happy with Lucinda. On a professional level, she is a classically trained, well accomplished violinist who plays for the LA Opera. As a teacher, she is patient, methodical, responsible, humble and has a good sense of humor. She really makes it enjoyable and fun for her students every time. I really couldn't recommend her enough.
