Meet Gilbert North's beginner and intermediate orchestra teacher

I love both teaching and performing music!  This is my 3rd year teaching orchestra at ALA,  and I have been a private viola/violin teacher for over 20 years.   After graduating from ASU with a bachelor degree in music education-string concentration, I taught elementary strings in the Tempe and Mesa Public Schools.   I earned a Masters degree in music performance-pedagogy on the viola in 2001.  I have also performed as a freelance violist in many quartets and ensembles in the valley.   Contact me if you have any questions or for more information.
