Music For Your Special Occasion

We also love performing music together and would love to come play at your special event! We offer carefully curated programs to suit any occasion. Send us a message!

Our Approach

Our mission is to provide COVID-safe in-person musical instruction and performance. We bring music outside to our backyard or yours with necessary social-distancing protocols in place. All students, teachers, performers, and audience members wear masks at all times and maintain a six-foot bubble. Thankfully the Bay Area offers a climate where we can make music in the fresh air!

Student Testimonial

After studying with Lucia for the past year, I am more confident and passionate about violin than ever before. Lucia is not only a talented and accomplished violinist, but a kind and motivating person. She taught me a great deal about being an effective orchestra and ensemble member, as well as developing my skills and making me a more accomplished violinist. Lucia made lessons engaging and productive and was always available for make-up lessons or additional instruction before an audition or festival. I am very grateful and fortunate for the time that I was able to study with her.
