violin and Viola lessons


Body awareness and spontaneity are central components of my lessons and my own performace. These make the work joyful and exciting, and they can always be practised: as a beginner or as an advanced student, as a child or an adult.

I integrate somatic training into the lessons. 

This prevents tension and promotes the naturalness of the movements. Hereby, the sound is enriched, breath and movement come into flow - the famous flow experience! 


I will help you to find your own good technique: one that matches your own anatomy and works effortlessly and efficiently for you. You will play with more joy and will enhance your creative expression. 

Come for a trial lesson!


Galabina's lessons are very versatile and cover every aspect. With a lot of care, love and passion, she helps her students to master the instrument.
She has been a source of great inspiration and motivation for almost 4 years now.

I would not have thought that I could still learn the viola as an adult. Galabina has convinced me in a clever and sensitive way. I always leave the lessons inspired and feeling more competent.

I gladly come to Basel especially from Zurich for the violin lessons. Galabina combines technical ability with musical imagination and cordiality.

It is a pleasure to return to the violin after a long break!
