*** Lesson Details ***
Growing up, my music education was strict and difficult. I try to do just the opposite to accomplish a love and appreciation for music within students. I'm very open to what the student wants to do. I include listening to classics, watching musicals, reading material, theory and whatever else interests the student to progress his knowledge.

Music Performance · In studio
David is a phenomenal musician, and a great performance coach. He really dives into the expression of every phrase and describes how to play it in such a manner as to make it seem natural and easy. He also approaches every day with such good humor and energy that it is a pleasure to work with him.

Viola was my first instrument and I can help you with everything from traditional classical repertoire to modern world, folk and jazz. I like to focus on music theory and reading skills, in addition to developing musicality from the first lesson.

Thanks so much, Kat! Cole responds so well to your gentle guidance, and he's motivated via your choice of slowly more challenging pieces. No complaints at all!

Kathryn is extremely helpful with beginners. She is patient, which is very important. She also gives very appropriate, easy to understand lessons which makes practicing on your own easy. Taking lessons with Kathryn is a great experience!

Miriam L. Auburndale, MA

I have been a private violin and viola Suzuki teacher for the past three years, while studying at the Boston Conservatory. I teach mostly beginner students from the ages of six to twelve- the reason I choose to work specifically with children of this age group is that I strongly value and encourage beginners to grow and learn with the necessary tools needed to further develop and work on later in life. I teach the suzuki method, which in short is the philosophy that all people are capable of learning from their environment, whether they are gifted or work hard and are eager to learn.

About Miriam

I am self-employed and have been teaching private lessons to students between the ages of 6 to 12 from the beginning of her Sophomore year to this day.

I began studying the violin at the age of 6 with Dubravka Sajfar Moshfegh at the New England Conservatory Preparatory School. I went on a Europe tour in the summer of 2011, as a member of the viola section in the NEC Youth Philharmonic Orchestra, and have performed in Vienna’s Musikverein, Dvořk Hall in the Rudolfinum (The Honor Mahler Centennial) in Prague, and participated in the Litomysl Smetana Festival, Bratislava Summer Festival (The Hall of Slovak Radio), ...
