Winter 2020 Student Recital

Anna Baksheeva Music Academy Winter Recital

This year Winter concert was truly in the style of Covid-19 era: everyone’s personal videos were put together into one final video and watched at home during the holidays. We included family members who can play instruments and Anna’s doggy was in the video too :). Our reality is tough right now and we are all in it together for sure. Making music has to happen in a safe and new ways too. Everyone agrees we can benefit from this experience and learn how to make better videos as time goes by.
Thank you to all the parents and students for their hard work this session!

Our Mission 

We believe that most everyone can learn to play the violin / fiddle, viola, and cello and find joy in playing. We take time to invest in every student’s success by providing learning and performing opportunities, supportive environment, ongoing lessons and classes, tutorial videos, communication and online support. We also expose our students to a wide variety of styles of music while maintaining fine playing traditions and good technique (solid rhythm, intonation and beautiful tone).  Our team of instructors lead by local professional violinist Anna Baksheeva is made of musicians with BA, MM, and PhD in music performance. Our goal and mission is to pass on musical knowledge and share our experience with anyone who comes to us regardless of age and abilities. We treat everyone as if they were preparing for a music career.
