Ever since I started playing violin at age 5, I have been enthusiastic about sharing my music with others. Throughout my childhood I gained experience by performing with my family band and competing in fiddle contests all over the country. Now as a young adult, I teach privately and in group sessions in person or online as well as perform in numerous bands.
My goal is to help students of all ages expand the creative mind and think of their instrument as a vehicle of self expression. I hope to help cultivate a community of players who will inspire each other to grow in character and musicianship.
G Rae's Jam Camp
Do you want to learn how to improvise and jam with other musicians? Georgia Rae has over 10 years of experience in teaching and performing numerous styles. At G Rae's Jam Camp, learn how to have musical conversations and turn your instrument into a vehicle of self expression.
Session 1 - geared toward ages 0-8, with no experience necessary. Every child is already born with music and imagination in them!
Session 2 - recommended for ages 9-12, who might not necessarily know how to play an instrument, but want to have fun making music together and learn new ways of expressing themselves through music.
Session 3 - suggested for musicians age 13-100, who already play an instrument (from beginners to advanced) and would like to build on their creative and improvisational skills. Bring your instrument and get ready for some low-stress, super fun jamming!

“I thought it would not work out with Pablo because he was so little when he started violin lessons(just turned 4). Working with a little boy is not easy. But she made it work. With overflowing energy and intense love with the children, students, she helped him little by little to built up the passion inside him. ”

“Her beat is totally up. She cares for her students interests in violin enough to turn them into playing real music. Playing violin is as physical as it is mental with many components that all need to come together. I have to say that I had my doubts of learning how to play the violin. However, Georgia Rae moved me past these doubts and with good instruction and practice she showed me that I could play the violin. I give her many more stars that are allowed and if you knew her teaching style and her great personality you would too “
