Get to know Beverly Bouma

I started playing viola in my school program in the 7th grade.  I fell in love with the instrument, and I couldn’t stop practicing, even when the lights when out and it was time for bed.  In my 2nd year of playing, I qualified for Regional All State, and the following year I qualified for All State.  As I continued to play, I participated in multiple other string and orchestra competitions.  When I was 15, I was fortunate enough to study under Emanuel Vardi, and continued under his pedagogy for 5 years.  By the time I was in 12th grade I was practicing for about 3 ½ hrs a day. 

 

               After I finished HS, I went on to Montclair State University where I earned my bachelor’s in performance.  Before I finished my degree I began to play professionally around NY.  I continued to study under some of most renowned violinists including Oscar Ravina, Mati Braun.  While learning under Oscar Ravina, he connected me to the Philharmonia Virtuosi, and through another connection I auditioned and was accepted to Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.  I was fortunate enough to play with them for a few years and would also substitute as needed. 

 

               With my over 25+ year of experience, I have learned to never stop practicing and improving.  This is a quality I try to pass on to my student as well.  As you can see, I have had a passion for playing string instruments for most of my life.  I enjoy helping others find their passion through learning music, and I look forward to helping you!
