Hello! I'm a professional violinist in the Thousand Oaks, CA area. I have played the violin for over 20 years and have 14 years of teaching experience, both in the classroom and as a private violin and viola teacher. I have a Bachelors in Music from Bowling Green State University and a Masters in Music Education from the University of South Carolina. I greatly enjoy working with students of all ages and ability levels and have experience teaching students ages 5 through 65. I enjoy sharing my love of music with my students!
*** Lesson Details ***
My goal as a violin and viola teacher is to help students experience and enjoy music to the fullest level in a safe environment. I challenge my students to reach their full potential while keeping lessons fun and engaging.
I'm a flexible teacher who will work with each student to find the right method for his or her learning needs. Parents are welcome to sit in on lessons!
*** Studio Equipment ***
I offer private violin and viola lessons from my home studio in Thousand Oaks, CA. Parking is plentiful with guest parking spots and street parking available. I have plenty of music stands and comfortable seating for parents and siblings who may wish to sit in on lessons.
*** Specialties ***
My specialties in teaching violin and viola range from beginners with no experience in music to advanced students preparing for college or other important auditions. I have experience teaching students as young as 5 and as old as 65 and will adjust my teaching as needed for a student's age and ability level.
Virginia is a great teacher. She is very patient with me and very knowledgeable about the violin. I look forward to our lesson each week!

Best investment for my music education
I started playing the violin in fifth grade and started learning from Mrs. Forbrizzio through our school orchestra in Middle School and continued with private lessons from her throughout High School. I saw major improvement throughout my time with Mrs. Forbrizzio and with her help I was able to achieve so much as a member of the South Carolina District Orchestra and the South Carolina Youth Philharmonic Orchestra. I learned a lot from Mrs. Forbrizzio and through her encouragement and dedication I was able to gain skills beyond the basics that really made learning and playing the violin challenging in the best of ways. I learned to appreciate different styles of music and even how to find my own niche when it came to playing. The one on one time I spent learning from her was truly the best monetary investment as well as investment of time I ever made for my music education.
Mrs. F. is a fantastic teacher!!!!
I am a mother of a viola student that lives in Gilbert, South Carolina. My daughter took lessons from Mrs. Fabrizzio to prepare for a seat in Regional Orchestra. It is highly competitive with a lot of talented students. My daughter said Mrs. Fabrizzio's instruction was easy to follow and she helped her define her goals and made them easy to achieve. My daughter said Mrs. F. gives constructive criticism that made her a much better player. We used Mrs. Fabrizzio for 2 years and my daughter got into Regional Orchestra both years! We both highly recommend her!
