Get to know Emanuel Cartagena Velez

Hey! My name is Emanuel, if you’re wondering how long I’ve been playing viola and violin, well it's been a short 13 years. Originally it started out as an escape from my problems, to play and perform, but then came a desire to do it because I loved it, and suddenly BAM I was a music lover! While I love playing classical, I do have all sorts of experiences, such as with movies, Latin music, chamber music, orchestral music, soloist, and even as a recording violist! When I was but the early age of 10, I started at a public music school in PR, then when I went to university, I saw that this was the path I wanted to take. 


I have been teaching viola and violin since 2019 and with immense pleasure I can say that I love what I do. Not only do I give my students that enjoyment of music, but I am able to give them a new way of expressing themselves.  


When I’m not practicing my ever-evolving repertoire you can find me reading books about, you guessed it, romance, and music.
