Teaching Philosophy: I customize my teaching style based on how a student learns. A string instrument can be challenging to learn and play well. It takes time, discipline, patience, a willingness to learn, and most importantly lots of practicing! I enjoy teaching strings and think it can be very rewarding to learn how to play an instrument, and alot of fun! I am happy to speak with an inquiring student about taking lessons in more detail. Feel free to reach out.

Get to know Aimee Castillo

I was born and raised in Mesa, Arizona, and grew up in a musical family. We each played and studied two instruments growing up. One was piano, the other we got to choose, and I chose violin. Music was a huge part of my life and obviously still is. I attended schools in Mesa and played in the various school orchestra and ensemble programs all throughout elementary, junior high and high school, mainly as Concertmaster.  Growing up I played in Metropolitan Youth Symphony (MYS), and Phoeniz Symphony Youth Orchestra (PSYO). I studied violin music performance on a full ride scholarship at Arizona StateUniversity. I played in the Symphony Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra. Since college, I have continued to play and perform around the valley in various orchestras and ensembles. I love to perform and I also love to teach! I have been teaching violin and viola for over 25 years. And cello for over 10 years. I am  also the proud mother of two wonderful and amazing teenagers.  We are living and loving life.
