When teaching, Carmen has a way of making you feel very comfortable and excited about what you’re playing. She chooses pieces that not only you love, but pieces that also challenge you to be a better musician, allowing you to develop confidence and love for music.
— Meredith Barkey, student

Carmen helped our daughter go from a shy under confident child, to a young women who was able to perform well at violin concerts in front of a live audience.

Trial Lesson

I understand that finding the right teacher is an extremely personal process, and that my teaching style may not be the best fit for every student.  

To that end, I always encourage all prospective students to come and take a free thirty-minute trial lesson with me, prior to registering for lessons.


Working with Carmen helped me enhance and develop my musical skills in violin. She also helped me be more confident going in an exam, in order for me to get a good grade.
— Anthony Bou-chrouche, student
