Violin in Tampa

By Amanda R. - Tampa Violin Teacher

One of the reasons I chose to attend school in Tampa is because of the musical community here. The University of South Florida offers incredible performances by faculty like Carolyn Stuart, Associate Professor of Violin as well as dozens of performances each semester by violin students. Whether it is a performance by the esteemed Presidents Trio, a solo recital or an orchestra concert, there is always an amazing violin performance to be found at USF.

Additionally, the Florida Orchestra is a big part of the musical scene in Tampa. Between the Masterworks, Coffee Concert, and Pops series there is always a chance to see professional violinists at work with The Florida Orchestra. This season featured concertmaster Jeffrey Multer performing the dazzling Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto. Later this season they will be performing the Brahms Violin Concerto with violinist Augustin Hadelich and the principal second violinist from The Florida Orchestra will be performing Thomas Ades’ Violin Concerto. The ability to see The Florida Orchestra perform in three beautiful halls in Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater makes concert-going an experience the greater Tampa Bay area can fully enjoy.

The Patel Conservatory Youth Orchestra is a wonderful asset to young musicians taking violin lessons in Tampa Bay. Four orchestras with talented conductors help to foster young musicians from beginners to advanced levels of musicianship. The ability to work with student colleagues on wonderful orchestral repertoire is one of the many amazing educational resources for young musicians. A Patel Conservatory Youth Orchestra concert is a glowing example of the benefits of music education in our schools and communities.

I am fortunate to be a Tampa native. Being in Tampa has allowed me to grow as an artist and educator because of the wonderful and unique experiences Tampa has to offer. You can experience these opportunities for yourself by taking for violin lessons in Tampa.
