**Stel.la is originally from Barcelona where she studied violin under the guidance and expertise of Ala Voronkova and Agustin Leon Ara. She played in several orchestras conducted by directors such as Josep Pons, Guerassim Voronkov, Bertrand De Billy, and Jordi Mora. Later, Stel.la moved to the United Kingdom to pursue and complete all levels of the Suzuki Method Training Course, and where she would co-lead the Cambridge Suzuki Violin Group. While in Cambridge, Stel.la began teaching violin and chamber music to choristers at King’s College School. She also went on to teach in some of the most well-established Suzuki workshops around the United Kingdom, and the Cambridge Suzuki Group received invitations to perform in venues such as the Royal College of Music, the Purcell Room in London, and several Suzuki National Concerts. In 2009, she relocated to Vancouver to pursue Bachelor and Master of Education degrees at University of British Columbia, and where she undertook her practicum at Lord Byng Secondary with Odette Kurth. Stel.la also worked at St. James Music Academy where she co-lead the senior strings department.
