Traditional Arabic Music



Tracy Helming aka Alimah



As a Suzuki violin teacher, I have enjoyed sharing my passion for both music, violin, and the art of learning for fifteen years. Five years ago I began teaching my own children music. Being a Suzuki parent has given me new insight into how to best inspire and guide students and parents in their practice. My website with more information on my studio is: www.suzukiseattle.com

My Teaching Background
After receiving my masters in music from the Yale School of Music, I completed a Suzuki pedagogy program at the Hartt School of Music. I have registered training in all ten Suzuki violin books. I returned to Seattle and studied with Ron Patterson for 2 years. I have been teaching violin for 15 years, both in my home studio program, and at Suzuki institutes and workshops around the Northwest and Alaska. I closed my home studio in 2007 in order to focus on raising my two young children. Now that they are older and well on their way to becoming fine musicians, I am opening a new studio in the Mount Baker and Beacon Hill neighborhoods of Seattle.

Besides teaching violin, I have spent years performing in professional orchestras and quartets, have coached chamber music, and currently am playing in both a gypsy and an arabic music ensemble. Music is an instant bond between two people, and I have used this connection to travel and perform worldwide, most recently traveling to Egypt to study arabic violin.
