Garrett Fischbach

I am a tenured member of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra in New York City. I offer inspiring violin and viola lessons to enthusiastic intermediate and advanced players pursuing careers in music, as well as students playing simply for the value music brings to their life.

As a member of the MET Orchestra since 1998, I have won four Grammy Awards, performed regularly at Carnegie Hall, toured Europe and Japan, and appeared on “Live in HD” broadcasts to cinema screens worldwide. Before joining the MET, I held positions in the San Francisco Symphony the National Symphony Orchestra. My 2-CD recording of the Sonatas and Partitas for violin solo by J.S. Bach is available for streaming and download on all major platforms.

I have served on the college division faculty at Mannes School of Music, and also as an adjudicator for Juilliard Pre-College concerto competitions and the Manhattan School of Music Orchestra Performance Program, and performed and taught at summer festivals in the US, Austria, and Czech Republic.

I hold a Bachelor of Music degree, Magna Cum Laude, from Boston University and a Master of Music degree from Northern Illinois University.
