Hello! I am a classically-trained, pop/crossover violist (& violinist). Multi-track arranger, multi-genre player. Happy to receive compositional direction or arrange string parts for you. Member of ATLYS string quartet, also available for hire as a group!
I find the most joy in playing, creating and performing with others. Alongside my studies in viola performance, I grew up playing in a chamber pop band called Mother Falcon from Austin, TX. Together we jammed with our classical instruments and toured the states playing in concert halls and clubs alike.
With experience as a professional orchestral player, studio session member for film/tv scores and live performer for various artists, I truly enjoy perfecting the art of remote recording. Collectively, these experiences led me to find the badass ladies of my string quartet, @atlysmusic. Together we have performed over 1000 concerts together and can deliver a very unified, blended group sound.
Excited by the prospect of working with you to bring beauty and nuance to a song of any genre, whether it be with one string track, quartet or a full orchestral sound!

Rita is amazing! Professional, communicative, creative.
❤️ Rita. She’s dope
Easy to work with. Dope music
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.
Absolutely amazing!!! Highly recommend using her for all your string needs!!
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.
