Joshua C.

Atlanta, GA

I began playing violin in addition to viola in high school. I enjoy the faster response of the violin and the way its higher pitches can soar over the top of the other strings, though I still prefer to play the 'inner' parts in an ensemble.

About Joshua

*** Studio Equipment *** I teach in the Education Building of a Church that has individual classrooms, where lessons will be held, all of which are off a common area where parents can wait during the lesson. *** Travel Equipment *** I will bring my instrument and a music stand for myself, and I assume the student will have their own as well. There are specific collections of songs and exercises that the student should be ready to purchase based on their level of playing and will be determined after our initial lesson. Students will want to continue to invest in other collections as they progress and I will occasionally provide additional materials as appropriate. *** Specialties *** I have a Bachelor of Music Education and taught middle school strings in the Houston area public
