Olivia Koo is a violinist active in teaching and performing. She provides her students with a comprehensive music education. Students are drawn to her vibrant violin performances, engaging personality, and professionalism.
Her performance experience brought her to play in Walt Disney Concert Hall, Cerritos Performing Arts Center, Chapman Hall, and Meng Concert Hall.

With numerous years of teaching experience, Olivia makes learning music fun and motivating and teaches each student with different approaches based on their needs. She feels that "first and foremost, music is meant to express oneself. My goal for each student is to have a sense of ownership and love for the music they play."
