Zooey (Zulema) Ibarra Warren

Award-winning classical and improvisational pianist and violinist, with over 12 years of experience with students of all levels and ages.
Teaching Philosophy

I teach students both music theory and ear training, so that they learn to not only play music through rote sight-reading, but also to listen and pick up on musical phrasings they hear. I place a heavy emphasis on listening, to develop musical vocabulary. My teaching style is fun and applicable, as I like students to focus on music they love, and expressing their own voice through their instrument. I teach non-traditional styles for violin!

Experience

I have been playing piano since I was 11 years old, and violin since I was 14. I have performed with various symphonies, string and jazz ensembles, as well as with various jazz, blues, and rock bands.
