Born in the small Eastern European country of Moldova to a guitarist/pianist and singer, Andreea has always been surrounded by music. After moving to the states, Andreea's fascination with the violin began and she started taking lessons at 7 years old. She studied for 11 years with Irene Morden, a graduate of the St. Petersburg Conservatory of Music, which was home to many of the world's greatest composers such as Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, and Rimsky-Korsakov. Andreea picked up the piano as well and has been playing for about 4 years.
Now an undergraduate student at Georgia State University in violin performance, Andreea has been teaching violin and piano for two years. Her students have gone on to join the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra, earned admittance to the Talent Development Program with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, as well as earn admittance into middle school and high school All-State programs. She has worked with many students differing in age, skill level, and aspirations. Andreea's teaching style is focusing on technique as well as teaching theory even from a young age. Andreea believes that it is important and makes playing music that much more enjoyable when the student understands what they are looking at. She implements these lessons through creative and fun exercises that make the student excited to go and practice!
When she's not teaching, Andrea loves playing gigs and has played for many different event types such as weddings, parties, and anniversaries. She also is an avid hiker and loves spending time outdoors! Andreea is currently studying under professor Tania Maxwell Clements at Georgia State who has played in a variety of different settings such as the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra in Manchester and the Scottish Opera Orchestra among many others. She aspires to become a chamber performer and continue to teach private violin and piano lessons in a full-time capacity when she finishes school.
