About Gyongyver Petheo

Georgina Petheo
Gyongyver Petheo
Music Teacher, Master
Location: Littleton, CO
Speaks: English
Instructs: Viola, Violin
Education: I received my diploma with a concentration in violin pedagogy from the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, Hungary. While exact reciprocity for this diploma may not exist in the United States, it is similar to a master degree level of music education.
Performance Experience: I have been an active performer since 1983. I am a member of the Colorado Ballet Orchestra, Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra, Opera Colorado Orchestra, and I perform with different chamber groups at weddings and special events on a regular basis.
Teaching Experience: I have been teaching violin, viola and chamber music since 1987. I am using my European method with a variety of materials. The Suzuki books are one of my favorite choices for songs. I teach scales, exercises and I help my students with their orchestra material. I make sure to strike a balance between emphasizing technique while still focusing on musicality at every lesson.
Teaching Philosophy: I believe that music education is part of being well-rounded. Learning to play an instrument is a great way to shape our personalities and become strong in other areas in life as well. Another focus of my pedagogy is to teach students how to think, how to find solutions, and how to prioritize. My goal is to create a friendly, easy going relationship with my students where they are always welcome to ask questions or sound their comments or concerns.
