Timbre Musical

Learn the joys of music with Ima-Karina 


About Me

I grew up in a family in Caracas that epitomized the cultural traditions of Venezuela through music and art. As a third generation musician, over the years I have travelled with my family group ‘Los Narvaez’ around the world from Venezuela via, Switzerland, Germany, Prague and Moscow to India to share the musical traditions of ’Sangre Venezolana.’


I was formally trained in the J.J Landaeta conservatory and worked at the Filarmónica Nacional Orchestra. With a scholarship, I travelled to Switzerland to receive a Violin Performance Degree at the Kayaleh Academy and later a masters in French Literature from the University of Geneva.


I am a passionate performer and a compassionate teacher. I served as a violin professor at Ludissima International School at Crans and at the Music Ensemble Orchestra at the Geneva Conservatory, before moving to Palo Alto, where I started Tibre Musical school and am looking to inspires a new generation to learn music and play the Violin.
