Violeta Ramos (harpist)

Photograph of  Violeta RamoaVioleta Ramos plays, teaches and composes for the Paraguayan harp. She was born in Buenos Aires in Argentina and inherited her passion for this traditional Paraguayan instrument from her parents, both of whom were born in Paraguay. During her career as a musician, she has taken part in many well-known international music and harp festivals both in Latin America and in Europe, playing not only traditional folk music but also her own compositions, which are more modern and draw on a variety of musical genres. She graduated as a music teacher, specialising in classical guitar, from the Escuela de Bellas Artes in Buenos Aires, and has attended various general and specialised teaching and instrumental courses at several renowned institutions in Argentina and Switzerland. She currently teaches classical guitar at the Knonaueramt and Hochdorf music schools in Switzerland. In 2002, Violeta and her husband, Richard Schneider, opened the first European school teaching the Paraguayan harp, in the old quarter of Zug in Switzerland, where she teaches Paraguayan harp using a method she has developed herself, which is appropriate for both children and adults. She also offers regular workshops on Latin-American harp music.
