Elena Gomez is a classically trained violinist from Bilbao, Spain. Her credentials include degrees from Musikene in San Sebastian (Spain), Codarts in Rotterdam (The Netherlands), and University of Santiago de Compostela in Santiago de Compostela (Spain). After finishing her master´s degree in orchestral music, Elena began pursuing a career in music education by enrolling in a teacher training program through the European Suzuki Association where she completed three years of intensive training to become a certified Suzuki Method instructor.
After arriving in the Sacramento area, Elena discovered the Young Artists Conservatory of Music and found that her approach and understanding of music education aligned closely with that of the conservatory. Taken from her training in the Suzuki method, Elena believes that every child has the ability to play an instrument and that parental involvement creates a more successful learning environment for the students. She specializes in violin education for young students, ranging in age from 3-14. What Elena loves most about being a violin instructor is the connections that she can make with each and every student. As a Spanish national, Elena is fluent in both Spanish and English.
