About Valentina H.

Hello, my name is Valentina Hernández. I am a music and Cello teacher and orchestra performer.

I studied at the Venezuelan National Youth and Children Symphony Orchestras System, "El Sistema" - Vicente Emilio Sojo Conservatory in Barquisimeto, Edo. Lara, Venezuela. I continued my musical formation at "Simon Bolívar Conservatory" in Caracas, Venezuela. For 11 years, I have dedicated my life to the study of the cello, participating in national and international Orchestras.

I started teaching beginner and intermediate level children between the ages of 7 to 18 in 2016.

Currently, I am a teacher in music academies. I dedicate myself to helping my students to succeed, making them achieve new levels of performing.

You can look at me playing the cello and learn by imitating me.

Your kids will enjoy the classes when we perform themes from popular movies, Christmas, Cartoons, and nursery songs.

In all levels, we will study pieces from classical through contemporary.

Do not hesitate to contact me!

Happy to have you!

Taking classes with Valentina has been great. She takes the time to explain the material until you understand it. She has a great amount of patience and care for her students. While she mostly has kid students, I am an adult in my 30's and her classes feel at par with a student like me. In other words, she can basically teach anyone the cello. I strongly reccommend Valentina as your next cello teacher!
