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.

How to play a piece of music that will move the audience emotionally. I stress vocabulary and music history and theory as part of being a well-trained musician.

In my opinion, having been an educator in the Isaac School District for many years, Mr. Quintana exhibits excellent teaching techniques and strategies to enable the learner to be successful. He is professional, prepared, courteous, and prompt. For the past 6 years, Mr.Quintana has been my cello instructor. The environment that he creates as an educator provides an excellent foundation for continued learning. Mr. Quintana's knowledge of string instruments and piano are superb.

Victor is a great instructor and a great person. He is wonderful with my young son, who was an absolute beginner when he started lesson with Victor at age 8. My son has a learning disability that makes it harder for him to read music and process instructions. Victor worked with all of that with patience and respect. Now my son can play beautiful songs and perform in front of others. I believe that learning music has also helped my son become better at reading, math, and thinking! Most of all, he feels successful about his guitar skills, which adds to his confidence. I cannot thank Victor enough!

I have been playing the viola since high school and use the same principles to teach viola that I use to teach the violin. The instruments are very similar as far as technique and beginning repertoire.

About Brianna
I graduated from the University of Idaho in May 2014. I earned my degree in Instrumental Music Education and have been teaching privately for since 2008. My main instrument is violin, and I am qualified to teach viola, and cello. Before moving to Arizona, I taught many violin students through my own private studio and through the University of Idaho Preparatory Division. My students ranged from ages 3 to 50. I have taught private instrumental lessons to grades 2-8 at a private school and I currently work as a full time 5th grade classroom teacher at a Great Hearts school. I also run the instrumental music program at the same school for grades 6-12. I continued their intermediate orchestra program and started the beginning orchestra program in the 2015-2016 school year. In the 2016-2017 school year, I piloted a successful beginning instrum
ents club. The majority of my experience is with students age 3 through 9th grade.

I primarily teach lessons in the Gilbert area where I teach full time. I also accept lessons in Tempe and Mesa. Students outside of this area are welcome to travel to my house in Tempe. My travel availability is limited, but my home studio availability is far more flexible.

Profile_128414_pi_EmilyBiltmoreHouse
Asheville, NC

View Full Profile

Experienced strings player (20 years on violin, eight on viola) available for eager students of all ages, from total beginner to late intermediate ability. I structure my lessons so that students explore their musical interests while building a strong technical foundation and good practice habits. I specialize in classical music with some experience in traditional music. I prefer to start students using the Suzuki books but have plenty of supplemental books and materials for learning traditional Scottish, Irish, and Old Time fiddling.

About Emily
I have been playing the violin for more than twenty years (my parents believed in starting young!). My music degree is a minor in Violin Performance from the University of North Carolina at Chapel, where I played with the award-winning UNC Symphony Orchestra, a string quartet, an indie/folk band, and various other ensembles. For the past two years, I have been teaching foreign language full time at the middle school level, which has been an excellent way to develop my teaching abilities. I've always preferred tutoring and small group teaching to a full classroom, however, and I am excited about teaching private music lessons.

I am primarily a classical player, but my interest and experience in traditional music (especially Celtic trad) have grown over the past few years. I learned primarily through the Suzuki method for my first ten
years of lessons, and this is my preferred method of teaching. If you want to learn classical or fiddle music, I'll help you learn! If there are other styles you're interested in (pop, Broadway, etc.), we can certainly explore those genres together--in my experience, students who play music they like do much better than those who play what they're forced to. On the other hand, the value of good technique only increases the further you get into any genre, and classical repertoire is an excellent way to learn technique.

Core aspects of my teaching philosophy:

1. Learning by ear. This is an incredibly valuable skill to have, and it's easier the sooner you start. If you play music, you should listen to music, a lot.

2. Being part of a community. If at all possible, I will help you find or set up group lessons, performance opportunities, or jam sessions on at least a monthly basis (though this may be trickier for online students). Having fun making music with other people often encourages students in their motivation to practice, desire to learn new technique, and knowledge of repertoire.

3. Practice. There are no shortcuts around this one. Like learning by ear, good practice habits are much better started soon than late!
