As a dynamic exchange, Sofia imparted a masterclass for my students at the Escuela Comunal de Música de Orosi in Cartago, Costa Rica.
It was a very musically enriching experience for each of my kids, who are litle by little growing as violinists.
Sofia provided a great variety of recommendations through her knowledge as interpreter and teacher as well as cautivated everyone in the room with her passion and energy for music.
Sofia is definitely an excellent guide to learn how to play violin and the musical skills it entails.

I have interacted with Sofia in a number of capacities over the years. I have seen her flourish as a performer and it has been great to see her very effectively leverage her passion and technical skills with a natural talent in becoming a violin teacher. She’s able to build great rapport with her students and focuses on building a personalized growth program for each one.

I’ve had the opportunity to interact with Sofia in different capacities over a number of years. I have seen her flourish as a performer, having attended a number of her soloist and orchestral events. At the same time, it has been exciting to see how she very effectively leverages her passion and technical violin skills with her natural gift for teaching. She’s able to build a true rapport with her students by being involved and really caring about their self confidence and growth as players and performers.

Sofia is adaptive, focused, and dedicated. She puts thought and research into her practice habits and really focuses on working both technique and musicality. She is also kind and patient, always making sure whoever she works with is comfortable and engaged. I've really enjoyed working with her for the past three years!
