Violin lessons – now accepting new students!

Violin & Viola

Rebecca's Violin Studio (located in North Oakland's Rockridge/Temescal) is now accepting new students of all ages! 

About my teaching: As a music educator, my mission is to empower students to be their best selves. Together, we develop an appreciation for the richness of the musical world, exploring historical contexts when considering what makes a musical moment exciting or poignant. We learn to creatively set goals and solve problems, make artistic decisions, and effectively practice to produce the results we want! All students have the opportunity to perform several times per year.

A little about me: I'm on faculty at several Bay Area institutions, including Las Positas College, The Crowden Music Center, New World Music Academy, and Villa Sinfonia. In 2017, my teaching was the subject of a short documentary produced by SFGovTv. When not teaching, I love to perform as an orchestral and chamber musician – catch me in upcoming performances with Berkeley Symphony, Berkeley Community Chorus and Orchestra, and Pocket Opera. I'm also a member of American String Teachers Association.

Afternoon lessons AND morning lessons are now available for home-schooled students. Visit for more information!
