Mosaic String Academy (MSA) fits needs of the budding string musician, of any age and ability level. We believe that everyone and anyone can learn to play an instrument. This is also the fundamental principle of the Suzuki Method. We endeavor to make learning all styles of music fun, easy and accessible. It is also our job to teach beautiful tone, technique and good practice habits. In the end, we wish to teach artistry.
We have a joyful approach to learning and exploring all kinds of music on orchestral strings. MSA members receive weekly private lessons in classical violin, viola, cello or bass. In addition, each student chooses one or more monthly group class(es) with a focus on music they’re curious about…and then we perform!
MSA is the only string studio of its kind in the metro-Portland area. In addition, Kate’s connection to the old-time and fiddle scene presents Mosaic students with opportunities such as music camps, festivals and fiddle contests. Kate is highly involved in the NW music community and is owner of Portland Fiddle Camps summer day camp.
At Mosaic we aim to support the growing demand for alternative ways to experience our historical instruments! Contact Kate for more information!
