    Yasmeen is one of the best musicians I know, and is a perfect choice for any project. If you need amazing strings, arrangements, vocals, and production she's the best of the best. Everytime I've worked with her, the turnaround is always fast, she's super friendly, and is a real team player. Hire her y'all!

    Yasmeen delivered above and beyond what I expected. Her beautiful tone and expressive playing sits like butter in the track I'm producing. Her communication was very professional and turnaround was about two days from first contact. 5/5 - highly recommend

    Yasmeen is quite honestly the best violin player for any genre. Her musicality and tone is so impressive that it would be tough to go to anyone else after you hire her. Super professional and recordings are perfect! Any track sounds 200x better with her on it.

    When you hire Yasmeen for your project, You’re getting the absolute best in the industry today. She has masterful technique, an excellent ear for melody, and a lush, rich production style. Her attitude is incredible, inviting projects of any scale. it makes working together such a joy. If you do some research , you’ll realize that many of your favorite recent string parts were played by her. Definitely hire Yasmeen. She’s incredible.

    I've worked with Yasmeen for over seven years and she is undoubtedly one of the most talented people I know. She can arrange, produce, and write at the highest of levels and it's an honor to watch her when she's in her element. She comes from a classical background and it shows in her focus and professionalism, whether it's in the studio or in a live performance. Yasmeen is a special talent, and if I need anyone to record and arrange strings, I go to her.

    Yas is a pro. She composed, arranged, recorded, and produced an entire 12 layer string section in my single “Sing Myself to Sleep”. She elevated the track and did incredible work in a very efficient amount of time...
    I plan to work with her in the future, and would recommend her to anyone.

    Yasmeen is one of the most talented string arrangers/players I’ve worked with. She played on and helped arrange multiple parts for 4 songs on my most recent record. I would usually send Yas a voice memo simply describing my vision/feel for the song and she’d interpret it into a legitimate string arrangement very quickly. Always open to notes, too, even when I didn’t have the best vocabulary for explaining what I envisioned. Would highly recommend her to anyone looking tryna make their songs more beautiful :)

    Yasmeen was so dope to work with. I had a custom project that didn’t exactly fit into her offerings and she worked with me on a fair rate and turned everything around within 24 hours. In addition to being a virtuoso violinist, she’s also a songwriter and producer and gets how to record herself, so everything came back super easy to integrate into my tracks. She’s gonna be the violinist I always call now - and I’m looking forward to seeing what other ways we can collaborate!

    Yasmeen is one of my favorite violinists and musical minds. It's different working with her than it is with most other string players because of her ability to write and improvise. You don't need to spoon-feed her everything. There are some kinds of open-ended instructions I write specifically for her, because I wouldn't rely on anybody else to know what to do with them. It's especially rare to meet a player who can improvise like she does and who can also SERIOUSLY play in tune (like the legit classical musician she is). Plus she records and mixes herself beautifully... hire her!

    Unbelievable Talent meets High professionalism. Very easy to work with and amazing musical mind. Never need to look anywhere else!

    I'd give her 10/5 if I could! I've hired Yasmeen for countless studio projects and live performances. She is my go-to violinist for pretty much every project and I can't say enough wonderful things about her playing. Her sight-reading and improv skills are both spectacular; whether it be something simpler in 4/4 or something complex in 7/8, she'll bring your song to life and truly make it "sound better". She shows her passion and emotion in her playing and anyone listening can tell she's the cream of the crop--she is the highest caliber of session violinist. Hire Yas, you won't regret it. :)
