I TELL STORIES THROUGH MUSIC

I believe in enjoying the process, searching and playing with different sonorities and bow strokes to communicate ideas and finally express our message through the instrument. I enjoy working and playing with different artists and styles worldwide. I want to be part of your project, let’s work together.

GET TO KNOW ME!

Hi! I’m Emilse Rios, an artist fully focused in music, although my passion is the Doublebass, being a sociologist has given me a different vision and sensitivity that goes hand to hand with recognizing music as an opportunity for personal development in every dimension. In my path as a teacher I’ve been part of the staff of very important institutions and as a doublebassist I’ve been focused mainly in the symphonic orchestral part, having the opportunity to be part of many international orchestras and festivals.

Courses & Lessons

Each student has a particular strength that makes them unique, my goal is to provide the necessary resources to improve those qualities; Develop technical tools that help enrich musicality because it doesn’t matter which is the level or project with the instrument, the purpose is always the same, deliver a message “Tell stories through music”.

TESTIMONIALS

Ms Rios is an amazing, kind, and patient teacher. She is able to work in a manner that is easy to understand and she communicates very well. My progress has been astounding.

Emilse is a wonderful, encouraging teacher who is very attentive to the details while always keeping the larger goals of the music in view. I’ve worked with her on Bach for a year and I’ve improved hugely due to her instruction!

Aaron Garrett

During the pandemic, I decided to venture into the world of double bass with no previous musical experience. Finding Emilse and her online lessons from Buenos Aires was a treasure trove! Emilse is an exceptional teacher, she is extremely kind and an understanding guide in my musical journey, helping me to advance at my own pace. I would recommend her a thousand times

Juanjo Gutierrez

Studying with Emilse Rios has given me new horizons to my bass technique and musicianship all around. I was able to extend my range on the fingerboard, improve my intonation and my dexterity using the bow. Miss Rio's enthusiasm to teach double bass is engaging and borderline infectious that I always look forward to the next lesson. Her methodology to double bass teaching is always objective, relatable, and professional. Emilse Rios is the best teacher I’ve ever had and presumably the best teacher anybody can get. I highly recommend this teacher!

I have had the privilege of studying under Emilse for 2 years now, and I can confidently say she is an amazing music instructor. Her dynamic approach to music teaching not only cultivates growth and development, but she also keeps the classes fun and enjoyable, yet all the while maintaining the demanding level of challenge that I needed to progress. She consistently pushes me towards goals well beyond my skill level and I have improved significantly while studying with her. As a beginning double bass player starting later in life, she has inspired me to continue my journey with confidence and positivity.
