Violin Instructor

Carolina Herrera graduated with Honours from York University under the internationally renowned violinist Jacques Israelievitch.

She initiated her violin studies at the age of eight in the Conservatory of Music in Bogota- Colombia. Since 2006, Carolina has joined several Orchestras in Canada including the Symphony Orchestra of the University of Alberta, the Koffler Chamber Orchestra, the Kindred Spirit Orchestra and Korean-Canadian Symphony Orchestra in Toronto and Kingston Symphony Orchestra. For two consecutive years, Carolina was a recipient of awards and scholarships to attend the Chuatauqua Summer Music Festival in NY. She is currently pursuing a Masters in Ethnomusicology and studies with Mayumi Seiler.

“My teaching philosophy is to develop musicality and appreciation for the violin regardless of age and level. I strongly believe that keeping my students motivated during the lesson will engage them to learn progressively in an enjoyable atmosphere; during class and during daily practice. The material that I use depends on the student’s goals and age and they may range from fiddle music to advanced preparation to RCM examinations. Therefore, I consider important that every student is exposed to different music styles to enrich their musical understanding.
In the past, I have coached my students to participate in provincial Music Festivals for Orchestra and young performers such as Kiwanis. Many of them have successfully achieved RCM examinations and start post-secondary education at University level.”
