Hazel Keelan has been a passionate violinist for more years than she will admit to, particularly throwing herself into the wonderfully intimate world of chamber music in the UK and now in the Bay Area. It has been an honor for her to become a teacher in the past few years and her most inspiring commitment in life now is to spark an eternal love of music, playing, friendship and creativity in everyone. Hazel has had a colorful past in visual art, lobbying, non-profits and the corporate sector and she loves exploring synergies, making new connections, and thinking out of the box in ways to bring music alive in the world today.
