A passionate educator and Suzuki inspired teacher, Ms. Abi teaches with Suzuki Strings of Austin, a collaborative Suzuki studio in the Austin area. She has a studio of violinists and violists from tiny beginners to advanced high schoolers and is a co-teacher for group classes at all levels. Ms. Abi teaches with Austin Soundwaves as well as guiding a small studio of adult learners.

A transplant to Austin, TX in 2018 from San Francisco, CA, she was on violin and viola faculty at the San Francisco Community Music Center for four years, and served as camp director of two chamber music camps during the summer of 2018. She was a resident teacher in the San Francisco Public Schools, a teaching artist at Summer Music West, a string coach with the Palo Alto Chamber Orchestra, and acted as a teaching assistant at New England Conservatory’s pre-kindergarden Project Step Classes to begin my teaching career. Under the guidance of the Cypress String Quartet, she was a part of the Music Moves Residency, reaching young musicians of the Bay Area alongside the Amaranth Quartet, a string quartet she founded and performed with for 5 seasons.

In violin lessons, the focus goes beyond the technical aspects of the violin, encouraging each student to flourish and reach their full potential. She believes that every student has the ability, drive, and capacity to succeed at, love, and learn from the violin.
