About Valeria P.

I am a professional violinist. I have a Bachelors Degree in Music with a violin specialization and Musical Pedagogy.
Violin students can expect to improve week to week in their skills and technique. It is important to be consistent with violin classes; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to play with expression, intonation, and confidence.
I cannot wait to start with our lessons!
I teach violin students of all different ages. I studied classical violin for 19 years, and popular for 5 years. I am qualified to teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play popular music whether the student prefers a music sheet to read while they are playing or memorize it, depending on the student's goals and choice.
I have performed in a Chamber Orchestra for ten years. I have toured South America and the Caribbean. I also have performed as a soloist in different ensembles and Orchestras with a vast repertoire.
My personal passion is for classical, popular, pop and rock music, it is important to understand that an accurate technique is essential to all music styles.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you to improve and become a better musician and performer in every class!

My 10 year old daughter has now been taking violin lessons online with Valeria for almost a year (once a week for half the year, and now twice a week). Valeria is amazingly patient with her, but also challenges her to push herself ever farther, and gently holds her to high expectations. They work on multiple aspects, writing the notes, singling along to the music to get the beat of it, proper posture, bowing technique, etc. She works with my daughter to select some pieces that are growth pieces and some that my daughter is interested in playing. They have developed a wonderful rapport.

Valeria is also super flexible and easy to work with - she's been understanding when we needed to reschedule lessons and great at communicating with me about simple things like logistics and also about my daughter's progress. I very highly recommend her!

My daughter had the chance to take lessons with Valeria and the improvement on my kid skills has been amazing. My daughter is more motivated towards the classes and the violin and wants to keep learning. Valeria is very good at motivating and teaching her classes. Highly recommended!!!

Valeria is great with my 10 year old daughter - very encouraging and positive while at the same time giving very good continuous and constructive feedback to her on how to improve and what to practice next. The lessons are purposeful and structured. She gives homework (and makes my daughter write it down!! :), checks in on how practice is going during the week, sends articles for us to read about how to improve her playing and she gives my daughter input into the songs she will learn next. Moreover, she has been flexible and easy to work with around schedule changes.
