Ruth Garcia

Violin Teacher

 

RUTH GARCIA

Miss Garcia was born in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. She began her musical journey at six years old. After finishing middle school, she took the decision to start her violin lessons, and is lovely to say, that her first lesson was the first song of the Suzuki Violin Book No.1.

Back in her country, she was part of the National Autonomous University of Honduras Chamber Orchestra, and a volunteer orchestra conductor/violin professor at the Choir and Orchestra Educational Arts Foundation of Honduras (FARECOH by its Spanish acronym).
Four years ago, Miss Garcia moved to Natchitoches, LA. Here she was part of the Natchitoches-Northwestern Symphony Orchestra and graduated from the Northwestern State University of Louisiana with a Bachelor of Music degree in Violin Performance.

She has played as guest violinist and violist in the Texas/Louisiana/Arkansas area: South Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, Longview Symphony Orchestra, Marshall Symphony Orchestra, Monroe Symphony Orchestra, Acadiana Symphony Orchestra, Texarkana Symphony Orchestras, Lake Charles Symphony Orchestra, and TEXAS Outdoor Musical. Also, she has been part of many international orchestra festivals in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Chile, Panama, and the United States.

Miss Garcia is very excited to share with her students the joy that music brings to life, help them overcome the new challenges with success, and share her training in the Suzuki Method. One of her favorite things about teaching is helping students to reach their personal goals accompany by hard work and discipline.
