Rita on SoundBetter

Hello! I play viola and violin with many experiences in studio sessions ranging from classical to pop genres. Happy to receive compositional direction or arrange string parts for you. Member of ATLYS string quartet, also available for hire as a group!

With two degrees in viola performance, the classical training has given me the foundation to pursue all genres of music. As a professional orchestral member, tv/film session player and tours with various artists, I truly enjoy perfecting the art of remote recording and arranging.

Excited by the prospect of working with you, whether it be with one string track, quartet or a full orchestral sound-- I'd love to hear about the projects you are working on!

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.

    Rita continues to be an incredible collaborative partner! We’ve worked on a handful of tracks now and I feel like I’m still just scratching the surface of the possibilities! She plays the technical parts with aplomb and the emotive parts with grace. For our latest project, I almost decided to just use MIDI, as the parts are mostly just sustained notes. I’m glad I changed my mind, as Rita gave the song a huge boost of warmth and depth! If you need strings, hire Rita - you won’t be disappointed!

    Rita is a rockstar! This is the fourth time she has recorded violin and/or viola parts for my tracks, and I continue to be amazed at her ability to deliver high quality recordings that combine technical precision with emotional expression. For this particular track, Rita improvised some very creative ornamentations into the lead part, helping the violin come to life at a key moment in the song. Amazing!

    Rita has a great work ethic and contributed to my projects with fresh ideas and quality string playing. I've worked with her on a couple songs already, all with great success. She's wonderful, I would recommend her to a friend 100%

    Rita continues to be an incredible collaborator to work with! She is a perfectionist who always delivers dynamic, emotional performances. The violin & viola parts she recorded were graceful and powerful - exactly what my track needed. Not only did Rita’s performances take my track to another level, but she also went out of her way to record extra parts to create a fuller, richer string section. My excitement level for this track has increased as a direct result of Rita’s contributions. Amazing!

    Working with Rita and the Atlys team was a great experience. She's kind, communicates promptly, and was able to work with my somewhat limited budget. The tracks, of course, sounded great, and she was sure that the end result was what I had envisioned. The result was not only a beautiful sounding song, but a joyous journey to get there. Would most certainly recommend.

    Working with Rita was yet again a wonderful experience! Just an amazing professional who makes collaborating fun and easy. Although the parts that I asked Rita and the Atlys team to record this time were fairly simple, their performances added so much depth and vitality to the track. Highly recommended!

    Working with Rita was a wonderful experience! She is kind, communicates promptly and thoroughly, and genuinely cares about her work. Oh, and she's an incredible violinist/violist as well! Her playing is emotive, and her recordings are rich and warm. I highly recommend Rita (and the Atlys team) for your string needs!

    Rita did such an immaculate job on my song. She's not only technically proficient but even more importantly she plays with true feeling. She's good, she's nice, and she's concerned about achieving your vision or helping you out with that as well with help in arranging. look forward to having her play on something again.

    Rita was an amazing communicator and collaborator. She not only was able to deliver exactly what I needed quickly, but the strings were recorded beautifully as well.

    I asked Rita to come up with her own parts, and the arrangement was fantastic and fit the song perfectly. If you need strings for your song, I can not recommend Rita enough.

    It is truly a pleasure to work with Rita. She is a very skilled and sensitive performer that will make sure you get exactly what you need. Add to that she is incredibly easy to communicate with at all times!

    I love working with Rita! While living in Chicago, Rita was the go-to violist and has remained the top call even after transplanting to LA. I'm so thankful that technology has provided us ways to still work and collaborate together. It's always an honor to work with her!

    Rita writes killer arrangements for her quartet and she also has a BEAUTIFUL solo voice for those rare (but memorable) solo viola moments ;)
    Super professional AND creative, hard to find both in a musician of this caliber! Highly recommend!

    Rita is a stellar performer, player, and person. She was so easy to work and communicate with, both as an individual and with her quartet, Atlys. I have had the good fortune to catch her string songs for about 8 pieces of original work. I cannot recommend them enough. For every track (ranging from simple folk to epic hip-hop) she was on point, dynamic, and solid. A total professional both in the studio and out of it, Rita is a master at what she does. Definite first choice of vio-voices.

    If you're craving the sultry and sweet sound of the viola, Rita makes her instrument sing with pure soul like few others can! Versatile and well-versed in so many styles, there's nothing she can't play. Additionally, she has loads of experience improvising imaginative additions to your tracks, as well as writing arrangements, and is incredibly easy to work! Will hire again and again!

    Beautiful big lush sound that takes any recording to the next level once Rita's playing on it! Highly recommend!

    Rita can provide extremely imaginative arrangements and her sound and vibrato will breathe life into your music! She puts serious thought and work into each recording.
