My name is Rebecca Portillo, and I have been playing the violin for 30 years and have over 20 years of music teaching experience. I have a BA in music education from California State University Northridge, and teaching is my passion! There is nothing as rewarding as watching someone's eyes light up when they "get it"!
I teach all levels, from no music experience to advanced, and especially enjoy working with neurodiverse students. I'm passionate about giving beginning violinists the best start possible so they keep going! I believe in thinking outside the box when it comes to teaching and learning. I've developed a Suzuki-blended approach that enables everyone to learn to play beautifully from the beginning.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband, son, and our two crazy dogs (Buddy and Ozzy).
