Angela Borlasa is currently a student at the CSULB Bob Cole Conservatory of Music for both music education and violin performance. She aims to improve and refine her musical skills, learn more about different kinds of instruments and how to play them, and to sprinkle the seeds of knowledge and passion for music. She hopes to travel the world to learn about music, instruments, and cultures, in addition to playing and teaching.
Violin has been Angela’s primary instrument for 11 years, but has picked up many other instruments along the way. She has played piano, guitar, and ukulele for four years and viola for three years. In addition to strings, she has played West African percussion, and currently plays in her school’s concert band on baritone.
Angela has been teaching students in Irvine and South Orange County since 2015 and makes an effort to teach what it means to be a musician and most importantly having fun and enjoying music. She has performed in London, France, Germany, Switzerland, Lichtenstein, Venice, and Austria as well as Segerstrom Hall and the Soka Performing Arts Center with different orchestras. She hopes that her students can get the same opportunities as well. In addition to music, Angela especially enjoys spending time with family and friends and going to the beach.
