Erin E. Brooklyn, NY

I teach Suzuki method and traditional viola. I absolutely love the viola and enjoy teaching beginners, people who have already studied, and violinist converts!

About Erin

I fell in love with the violin at age seven under the instruction of Natalie Colbert at E. Rivers Elementary School in Atlanta, GA. I studied violin through high school and college, and received a BA in Communications with a Minor in Music from Georgia State University. After a lifelong study of the violin, I began to play the viola as a happy accident. As an undergraduate student in college, my chamber music group needed a violist to play the Schubert Trout Quintet. Never one to turn down a challenge, I jumped right in and never looked back, and have played viola in addition to violin ever since. I'm eager and enthusiastic to share my knowledge of music. I am passionate about enabling students to express themselves through music. I teach students of all ages, but particularly love

Erin is the Best!! I have started taking lessons again as an adult and Erin is just as excited as I am as I become familiar once again with my instrument. In a nutshell- it is so much fun and a highlight after my long work week. I can't wait until my son is old enough to play. I have no doubt that she is awesome with kids.

Concetta was such a treat to have in our home! She came out all the way from NY to NJ for my mothers birthday, and though she is a beginner, emerged from the 1 hour lesson so inspired to keep practicing, able to fully complete her first song! She even did a little performance at the end on the lesson! She is a great people person, fun to talk to, and she really knows her stuff. Excellent choice!

I have learned more in just three lessons with Concetta than I learned after three months of once a week lessons with an instructor from a music store.

Concetta has a natural gift to teach and an ability to allow even a musical novice, like me, understand basic music theory.

This talented young lady eat, sleeps and breathes music.

Mandolin · Online
Verified Student
When I met Concetta online, I had never played the Mandolin before. Now after 4 going on 5 months I am in the beginning stages of learning Vivaldi's Concerto for Mandolin. This feat was accomplished by Concetta's knowledge, understanding and compassion for this student who was clumsy, awkward and with little self confidence. I now know where I want to go with the Mandolin and with Concetta's guidance and wisdom, I know I will be given a strong foundation to achieve it. This has been the best experience for me and I know it will also be for you as well....:)

Nicholas P. Brooklyn, NY

I suggest viola to young students that already have violin experience, as well as to adults looking for a deeper sound at the early stages. Viola is my primary performance instrument.

About Nicholas

Welcome! I am a violin and viola teacher from New York and a registered member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas. I am an active performer of contemporary and classical music, and my commitment is to instill my students with both a passion for playing music and an outstanding technical foundation. My teaching method is tailored to each student's individual learning style and motivation for playing. The first question I will ask at every first lesson is: what music do you love? This can be one song - a nursery rhyme, classical melody, or popular song - or a genre of music. Regardless of age, I believe that the most effective path for learning violin or viola is to start with the music! For younger children, I suggest beginning with the Suzuki method in order to establish ...

As helpful as they come, Nick has bent over backwards to make sure our 6-yr-old daughter was outfitted with the right violin and bow. As an absolute beginner when she began a couple of months ago, she's impressing us now with her new skills.

Instructor/Teacher/Friend; I do not know where to begin with this tutor of music from The Celestial Spheres. He is my own Orphic Music Instructor. In that he 'Inspires", and makes one want to practice and go with him! It's a conception easily understood, once you get going with him in learning. And if you know? Well! You'll know far more. And this can be said on all levels.
I don't know if these comments are actually looked at or reviewed in some way, but he's a raw talent in many ways, and I can see for All ages :)

A lovely teacher! Very patient, understanding, non-judgmental and thorough. Also very flexible with his timing. He's a keeper!
Sarah E. Brooklyn, NY

I began viola at age 11, and began teaching viola in my first year of study at music school.

My training in violin and viola comes from distinguished performers in the classical music community. I have studied with Nicholas Cords (of Brooklyn Rider), Lawrence Dutton (of the Emerson String Quartet), Karen Ritscher, Brett Deubner, and Nancy Buck. My teachers have been taught by some of the most eminent string pedagogues of their generation, including Dorothy Delay, Karen Tuttle, Lilian Fuchs, Harvey Shapiro, and Heidi Castleman. This broad survey of teaching styles and philosophies gives me a great breadth of knowledge which I apply to all of my students.

Whether it be beginners, who are just learning the basics of sound production and proper posture, or advanced students, who are preparing for solo competitions or orchestral and chamber performances, my students will feel empowered and strengthened by their studies with me.

I hold the same approach for all my students at ...

About Sarah

Hi, my name is Sarah and I would love to teach you to become a better musician. I began teaching at the Nevada Blind Children's Foundation as a piano instructor in my senior year of high school. Since then, I have taught as a music teaching assistant at Stony Brook University and a violin, viola, and cello teacher at Music & Arts in Mount Sinai. I aim to teach my students more than just the basics. My students should expect to master: how to play their instrument most efficiently, body awareness, relaxed and proper posture, musicality and thoughtful phrasing, some aspects of music theory and ear training, stage presence, and more. Most importantly, I will help my students grow more confident in their musical abilities. My goal is to help nurture my students' musical talents and ...

My daughter loves Sarah, she is very sweet, helpful and comprehensive. She sets standards, challenges and goals for my daughter to reach that allows her to feel like an accomplished violinist, although she's just a beginner.
Kevin S. Great Neck, NY

Lessons will be different depending on student's age, level, and interests. Materials used in lessons will include scales, technique book, as well as major pieces that the student will be working on.

Every student learns differently, and I will try to tailor my instructional style according to each student's needs.
