Violinist Leah F. hails from Denver, Colorado where she has earned recognition as a soloist, chamber musician and arts humanitarian. Ms. F. recently graduated from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music under the tutelage of renowned violinist, Ian Swensen. Trading coasts, in the Fall of 2020, Leah will be entering a Master of Music Degree program at the Longy School of Music of Bard College where she will be a teaching assistant to Paula Majerfeld.

Ms. F. has trained and volunteered in the El-Sistema Program in Denver’s inner city, assisting elementary school children who are culturally underserved and incorporating the musical methodology established by pedagogue and philanthropist, Simon Bolivar in Venezuela.

In addition to her charitable work, Leah has worked at Conservatory Connect, a partnering organization of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, (SFCM) as well as an intern for the illustrious New Century Chamber Orchestra.

Having worked extensively with the Telegraph and Takacs String Quartets, Leah not only honed her chamber music skills by performing internationally at the Rencontres Musicales de Noyers and the Nice Summer Music Academy in France. There, she was able to continue to hone her French communication skills. Nationally, Ms. F. has participated at the Castleman Quartet Program, LyricaFest and the Lamont Academy of Denver University music festivals.

Leah currently serves as assistant Principal 2nd of the Lyrica Chamber Orchestra as well as the organization’s newly appointed managing director. In addition to her music, Ms. F. enjoys hiking with her dog, Nico, and cycling.

I have been playing violin for nearly 14 years, and have taught many children and young adults for 4 years. Which has involved one on one teaching as well as chamber music coaching and feedback. I am extremely passionate about finding the right fit for each student while progressing them to reach their own goals and finding their own musical voices.

Easy and well worth the money

Leah replied to my request for a lesson within half an hour. We set up the appointment and she sent us a zoom link to join. The process was super easy and my son says he thought Leah was 'really cool' - coming from a 16 year old I think that's pretty good!

Amazing Tutor!

Leah was extremely patient and helped figure out where I was at skill-wise before quickly moving into the actual lesson. No time wasted and she easily picked up and corrected any errors I was making immediately. 10/10 Recommend!! I am in middle school and she was very easy to understand and work with. Will be keeping up with more lessons in future!

Knowledgeable, kind and patient teacher

Ms. Leah is a very patient, kind and experienced violin teacher. My daughter was learning to play violin for over a year and she continued to have some struggles, started losing interests in playing violin....then we found Ms. Leah!! After taking Ms. Leah's lesson once, her skill got so much better like a magic! Now my daughter has been enjoying violin and looking forward to taking lessons from Ms. Leah. We are very impressed at Ms. Leah's teaching skills and very thankful to have her.
