Teaching Philosophy 

Nicole Rafferty studied violin performance and the Suzuki Pedagogy at the University of Denver's Lamont School of Music. In 2013 she received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Denver in violin and Psychology. In 2015 she received a graduate certificate in the Suzuki Pedagogy for violin and completed a 3 year 1600 hr AmSAT certification in the Alexander Technique.

I have been playing violin for over 17 years and have played with many different groups in both the United States and Italy. When performing for a wedding or other special event I believe in up holding a level of professionalism that allows each client to feel relaxed and secure. I also like to pay special attention to each clients special requests, making sure that the client gets exactly what they want.


Performance Experience
Teaching Philosophy...

I have been teaching for 4 years and I have been certified by the American Society for the Alexander Technique and the Suzuki Association of America to teach the Alexander Technique and Suzuki Pedagogy. I have taught students from the ages of 4 to 50 and have felt comfortable teaching any age. Even though, I am certified as a Suzuki teacher I believe in customizing my teaching style to suite the students learning style.


Due to my Alexander Technique training, I emphasize a learning experience that teaches students how to develop mentally and physically positive habits, problem solving skills, and basic music theory and history knowledge.
