As a solo violinist or part of a chamber group, Mia Bella is ideal for your event performance. From classical to pop and standard melodies to heavy rock, strings are the perfect performers in any setting. A professional violinist in many groups around the Bay Area, Mia Bella offers beautiful and versatile music for recitals and recordings as well as private events such as weddings, birthday parties, conferences, and more.
If a string duo, trio, or quartet is desired for any event, I will be joined by other local professional musicians. For details and availability, please contact me at any time and I will help make your event special.
Mia Bella played violin for our wedding and she did a fabulous job. Her skills are amazing and she sounded beautiful. Additionally, she was very easy to work with leading up to he wedding and responded quickly to all of our questions. I would definitely recommend her to everyone - she is amazing!
I could not be any happier with the music Mia played at my wedding ceremony. Mia is responsive and made me feel really comfortable. My only wish is I met her after the ceremony . Thank you so much!
Response from Music Mia Bella:
Thanks, Tara! I loved playing for your ceremony and am so glad you were happy with the music. Your song choices were wonderful!

Mia Bella D’Augelli is a violinist based in Oakland, CA. As a performer, she plays solo in various settings – falling in and out of classical notation – and is a member of the Town Quartet (a traditional string quartet) and Redwood Tango Ensemble (a sextet for milongas and new tango chamber music). She plays periodically with other chamber ensembles, symphonies, pit orchestras, and pop groups, including as interim assistant concertmaster with the North State Symphony for the 2017-18 season, and as assistant principal 2nd violin with Livermore Valley Opera. She has worked closely with composers of today, such as David Behrman, Ian Carey, Brett Carson, Andrew Jamieson, George Lewis, Mateo Lugo, Roscoe Mitchell, Aaron Novik, and Lewis Patzner. Her collaborations often include venues that are not a concert hall through organizations such as Classical Revolution, Opera on Tap, and Groupmuse. Mia Bella also composes and works to explore sound from many vantage points through improvisation. Studying with Gloria Justen, she received a BA in Music Performance from Mills College in 2014. In the chamber music arena, she worked with Joan Jeanrenaud, William Winant, and Robert Schwartz, while improvisation studies ensued with Roscoe Mitchell and Fred Frith. As a teacher, she is attentive to each player’s drive to learn, exploring technique and musicianship with the help of established method books and personally developed material. Students are encouraged to use their own knowledge of music to create pieces and exercises as they progress.
