Dr. Kathy Rabago's Students

Students of Dr. Kathy Rabago - remember, we are on a little bit different schedule this semester!  We are emphasizing private lessons + harnessing the power of learning as a team.  Here's a link to our calendar.    

Meet our New Violin Teacher, Michelle Grosser!  

Velocity is pleased to announce that Michelle will begin teaching for us in January.  Michelle Grosser is a violinist and music theorist based in Austin, TX.  Michelle enjoys music analysis, and research. Her research interests include the change in cultural capital since the World Wars, and how that is displayed through music in media, specifically film and video game music. Michelle holds a degree in Music from the Sunderman Conservatory of Music at Gettysburg College and is currently pursuing her Master of Music in Music Theory at the University of Texas at Austin, Butler School of Music. When she is not studying or teaching, Michelle loves to read and spend time outdoors with her dogs. Welcome Michelle!

Chamber Music

If you’ve taken private lessons for two years or more, then you may be ready for chamber music class!  This is a wonderful opportunity for students who are already familiar with their instruments to work with Dr. Rabago, Dr. Emerson, Ms. Dixon, and Dr. Chung to grow in their musical skills collaborating with other students.  We will group students according to ability, and set rehearsals based on student and teacher availability.  Students of all instruments welcome!
