La Pizzicata Clases - Lucy Garrote
Violin, viola and violoncello instructor
When I started my violin studies I was 18 years old, and I was lucky enough to find a school for stringed instruments in which I was not only taught the performing techniques, but also what’s most important, to enjoy the easiest the violin can give us: its sound, pure and simple. From that moment, my experience with the instrument became about connecting with vibration and feeling before anything else. And that is the reason why I love teaching, begginers mostly, so that I can pass on the enthusiasm and fulfillment the basic elements can give us.
In 2002 I started my violin studies in Zenerata Escuela de Cuerdas, guided by Gato Urbanski and his team, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
In 2005 I started working as teacher’s assistant in initiation groups for children; and I started my participation in Aqualactica, an electroacoustic string quintet, playing live and in professional recordings for ourselves and other musicians as well, until 2010.
From that moment on, I have been developping and leading on my own workshops and groups for the initiation of violin, viola and violoncello in different cultural centers in Buenos Aires, and I have continued with the formation of students at a private level.
