about erin

Erin is an experienced violinist and educator, currently residing in Silverton, Oregon. She is a native of the San Francisco Bay Area and grew up singing and playing violin from the young age of 4-years-old. 

As a performer, Erin specializes in chamber music and delights in connecting musical genres such as classical and Irish traditional or jazz and folk music. She performs with the Newport Symphony Orchestra in Newport, Oregon and Irish band Slugger O’Toole based in Eugene, Oregon. 

Erin holds a B.A. in Music from the University of Oregon and a M.S. in Arts Administration from the University of Oregon. In addition to teaching at RiverCity Rock Star Academy, Erin also teaches at Ethos Music Center in Portland, Oregon and owns and operates Vivace Music Studio.  She believes the core values of making music education accessible, and embracing challenges as a path to growth and celebrating community is through music. Erin’s teaching style combines her years studying the Suzuki method as a child with a broad range of additional musical influences. Bring Erin your favorite song and you can most likely learn it on your instrument!

When not teaching or performing music, Erin will be gardening or playing with her two cats, Arthur and Sophie.
