I like to focus on correct playing position, reading the clefs associated with viola, scales, etudes, solo pieces, shifting, and vibrato.I've taught a wide range of students. From beginner to intermediate to advanced. I've taught students as young as 4 to students in their 60's.

About DeAndre

I am looking for students who want to work hard at learning an instrument or anyone that would like to learn to read music. I specialize in classical and religious music. I have been playing in the Huntsville/ Decatur area for years.

DeAndre is very patient and pleasant with my two daughters, who are looking forward to their next lesson. He is clearly a talented musician as well.

For the last year I have been taking piano, viola and violin lessons online with DeAndre. He is a natural, insightful teacher and I look forward to years of lessons with him. I would absolutely recommend him.

I'm a beginner with the violin and viola and an intermediate pianist. I was doubtful at first that I would be able to learn through a video chat. I'm amazed at the detail DeAndre can pick up just by watching a video chat. There have been many times when we just did the lesson over the phone with no video and he was able to tell that my fingering hand was in the wrong position or I was holding the bow wrong just by listening over the phone!

On and off through my life I've taken piano and viola lessons (I'm 46) and was never able to get very far. I found my teachers discouraged me in many ways without trying to. DeAndre has been fantastic. With his instruction I've been able to do things I never thought I would ever be able to do. He's excellent at giving feedback about the things I'm doing wrong but in a way that keeps me positive and makes me aware of the things I'm doing well and the things I need to improve.

DeAndre is absolutely worth the time and money.

Private Viola Teacher

I am a string specialist. That means I teach and play violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, bass guitar, mandolin, ukulele and piano. I earned B.A. earned from the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley Colorado where I was a double major in classical guitar and double bass. In my senior year I was the recipient of the Annual Concerto Contest where I performed the "Concerto in A Major" on double bass with the University orchestra for the spring concert. I have played in both professional and semi-professional orchestras in Colorado and Arizona. I believe that any student will practice more if he or she likes the music they are playing. Periodically I will ask a student to give me a name of a piece of music that they would like to learn how to play. I notate it for them, often simplifying the rhythm and chords in Finale NotePad and give it to them free of charge. I teach students how to play music on their given instrument. Not just how to play the instrument but working on ...

Mr. Victor is teaching both of my kids, one guitar and the other piano. They are beginners, and he is very patient but keeps a good pace. I feel like they are learning a lot. He is a true music teacher and knows his stuff!

Drawing from a wide array of performance and teaching experiences, I tailor unique lessons to Viola and Violin students of all kinds who are ready to take their playing to the next level. I hold all of my students to a high level of achievement, while integrating their personal goals into my lessons. Some of my students have described lessons with me as "whacky and fun." Students learn basic skills, advanced techniques, music theory, music history, among other subjects to help inform effective and enjoyable performances. What do you want to achieve? Let me know and let's work together to get there!

I teach students of all ages and specialize in violin and viola lessons. The foundation of my teaching is based on technique, which I believe with dedicated practice develops into individuals' musical style and musicianship. I also believe that music has no boundaries and every musician deserves to explore a diverse repertoire of music genres. My students are given the opportunity to dabble in several genres of music including classical, jazz, fiddle, and pop.

Our daughter was starting violin for school in the Fall of 2019.. Of the available teachers who were doing lessons in school, we took a chance and ended up choosing Brittany based on the very little information that we received at the time. We have been so happy that we did - it has been a wonderful experience and relationship for our daughter. Brittany was patient and kind with her as she learned in those early days. I recall one day our daughter had a rough day, and mentioned it in her lesson - Brittany took that extra step of emailing us to let us know what they had talked about. It was nothing major in the end, but very much appreciated that she was looking out for our daughter!
Obviously, lessons changed to remote only in March 2020, but Brittany was still effective despite the lack of in person attention. We can hear how far our daughter has progressed on the violin in the last year, and Brittany’s patience and passion for music come through in how she cares for her students and their progress. There are of course days she doesn’t necessary feel like doing her lesson, but every single time that she goes into it feeling that way, she has come out of the meeting with a big smile on her face.
If our son decides to learn violin or viola when he goes into middle school next year, it won’t be a question about who we will ask to help on his journey, and Brittany will have another student.
Lalitha
Brittany is a great Viola teacher always motivating my 10 year old to do well. She is very thorough and organizes the materials according to the student's skill level. She fixes all the flaws without discouraging the students. She works very patiently with my 10 year old boy and has been very encouraging for the past 2 years. We love to have Brittany as our Viola teacher :)

Brittany is a very nice teacher. My daughter loves to come to her lessons.

"Couldn't have asked for more!

We found Jessica through the Suzuki Association Directory. I was looking for a teacher that taught through the Suzuki method and she ended up being a perfect fit for my VERY energetic son. Patient, flexible (lessons in our home), laidback and even willing to drop by on her free time to fix a few broken strings and stray bridges
We could definitely hear my sons progress after each lesson...very pleased and would definitely recommend!!! :-)"

"Elisa is a great teacher

Elisa taught my daughter viola for almost two years before she moved West. My daughter start viola when she was six. Elisa was very good with a young novice player - She explained musical concepts at an age appropriate level (but never dumbed things down). We were also pleased that she had high standards in her weekly expectations but always kept things fun and loose so as not to cause stress. Had she not moved we would still be employing her. Elisa is a great teacher."

"I first met Krizstina playing a gig. I made a technical inquiry and her advice and suggestion(s) made an immediate difference; the rest is history. Krisztina is not only very knowledgeable and sensitive in her teaching, but she knows how to relate concepts so that the student grasps and understands. Since my time with Krizstina, my playing has made notable changes, not only to me, but to others as well (according to them). Krizstina is always prepared, pleasant, professional and open to suggestions."
