About this pro

I teach violin to children or teenagers. Usually, I do personalized lessons for each of my students. Every student is a different world and mind, and each student has a different rhythm of learning, so from that, I teach with different methods for each one of my students. 

I teach them to practice by themselves and to think about what they are really doing with their instrument.

I teach to read music and to play the violin from the very beginning.

I love teaching because each student is a different world to know and it is a pleasure for me to see their improvement with the instrument in different ways and levels.

I give a part of me to each of my students, I am usually available to answer their questions about their practice or something that they did not know before about the instrument.

    Es muy buena profesora, siempre está buscando en la perfección en cada cosa que uno hace al tocar el violín, aprendí muchas cosas como tocar con más fuerza, no tener miedo a desafinar una nota porque es parte del proceso :) con ella perdí el miedo a equivocarme al tocar

    Yo estuve en clases de violín desde 2016 hasta principios del 2019 con la profesora Katherine. Fue una linda experiencia, pues su método de estudio me permitió ir avanzando progresivamente en el instrumento e ir puliendo las técnicas, además me insistió a tomar nuevos desafíos hasta tocar piezas más complejas. Se nota el avance a medida que asistes a las clases. Yo la recomiendo muchísimo, es una gran profesional y una persona muy linda y comprensiva.

    (Español) Que fueran estrictas, puntuales y por sobre todo que se centrara justo donde estoy débil o donde fallaba.
