About Rachel

A dedicated educator and performer, I have worked with young beginners through advanced students at the collegiate level, as well as adults of all levels. A traditional teacher that uses a combination of Suzuki repertoire and curriculum created by my mentor, renowned pedagogue, Mimi Zweig, I have 15+ years of teaching experience in a variety of settings. In addition to private teaching, I have been an associate instructor in violin at Indiana University, an adjunct faculty member at Napa Valley College and Pacific Union College and have experience as an El Sistema program director, orchestra sectional and chamber music coach.

About the Studio

Previously located in Oakland, CA and now offering services to students in locations worldwide via zoom, the Patrick Violin Studio offers private violin and viola lessons to all ages and levels, as well as group classes and chamber music coaching.

Studio performance opportunities include end of semester studio recitals as well as frequent, more informal events. 

Learning the violin can be a challenging, fun and rewarding experience that helps to cultivate a lifelong love for and appreciation of music. Musical expression is such a wonderful way to communicate with others! If you or your child are interested in learning the violin or continuing your musical education, please fill out the studio inquiry form to schedule your free consultation today!
