Private Lessons


I enjoy working with violin and vocal students of all ages and ability levels from beginner to adult.  I prepare students for exams, competitions, auditions, festivals, and to play for their own personal enjoyment.  In addition to weekly private lessons, I host a variety of performance activities for my students throughout the academic year including, studio recitals, studio classes and guest masterclasses.

Carmen is a skilled and sensitive teacher, with a gift for working with children.
