As performers and as educators, we seek to involve ourselves fully and richly in the love and enjoyment of music in its infinite variety. We believe everyone, at every stage of life, can benefit from the magic of real live music in their lives, for personal enlightenment, family enrichment, and connection to community and to the greater world beyond. We believe the greatest musical experiences can occur not just in concert halls, but amongst ourselves.

Paul Woodiel and Robin Zeh, founders of Montrose Music, are two of New York’s most sought-after violinists. Together, they bring a broad stylistic compass and wealth of experience to their innovative concert presentations, and pedagogical activity. Both individually and together they have performed in all New York’s major venues, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the 92 St. Y, Radio City Music Hall, Metropolitan Opera House, and Madison Square Garden. As concerto soloists and recitalists they have appeared in venues from the Utah wilderness to the World Trade Center. Their ensemble affiliations include the American Ballet Theater, The Orchestra of St. Luke’s, the American Composers Orchestra, the New Jersey Symphony, as well as the orchestras for the Grammy and the Tony Awards. Robin is also an admired exponent of  contemporary repertoire, acclaimed by the New York Times for her “stylish, committed playing” as soloist with the American Modern Ensemble. Paul is also a three-time New England Fiddle Contest champion, described by his friend and teacher Leonard Bernstein as “a first-class performer - one who combines spirituality with intellect.” Between them they have been featured in dozens of Broadway shows, and performed on countless recordings, film scores, and advertising jingles. Their active Montrose Music teaching practice opened in 2011.
