Ana discovered the beauty of learning through the Suzuki method as a child and graduated from all levels as an early teen. She began tutoring violin students and soon after opened her own studio.

She adjusts to different learning styles and backgrounds, is patient and encouraging with a great desire to help students develop a love for music.
