Private Viola Teacher

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.

Brianna has helped me progress with my violin rapidly, and she is very patient and kind. Her studio is great and there is a calm, quiet atmosphere there. I would recommend her to anyone that loves the violin and wishes to progress in their learning.

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!
Victoria W.
It was awesome! Great pace and great mix of technical and practical.
Laura
Victor has been an amazing teacher. He is extremely knowledgeable not only about violin, but about practically every other stringed instrument there is. He also has an amazing grasp of musical theory, and has really helped me learn about my instrument. He has also helped me grow as a student. He keeps me interested in the music, and still challenges me to keep improving. I have had other music teachers, but he is definitely the best I've had.

I focus specifically on proper form for all ages and technique while still incorporating musicality. All students should be taught musicality and technique together not one or the other. Our lessons will involve mental and physical practice technique, as well.

Online Viola Teacher

I am a certified Suzuki Method teacher, currently trained in levels 1-3, with plans for further certification training.

I am fun and supportive. I'm having just as much fun teaching as I want my students to have learning, and creating a patient, supportive environment is integral to my students' development.

I teach all ages and abilities. I am experienced in a variety of teaching levels, from beginning to advanced studies.

Each student has lessons structured according to their individual goals, learning speeds, and musical levels. I teach students of all levels positive playing habits and how to avoid bad habits, and I teach these using the standard classical repertoire for violin and viola.

I emphasize technique and the fundamentals of theory, with students of all levels so they will have the essential building blocks and tools they need to succeed.

I am professional. I have received some of the best education in my field, and with over 20 years of experience in music

RYAN M.
Anna is very good at explaining terms and methods in a way that can be easily understood by a novice such as myself by catering to one's style of learning while at the same time ensuring that the student remain grounded on the fundamentals whether it is in the finger positioning, bowing strokes, or proper posture. I love how she is able not only to identify things that I might be doing wrong but also solutions to difficulties that I might be having during the lessons. As a result, I am very happy at how I have progressed in my skill level since I started a couple of months ago. She is very patient, listens to concerns of the student, very easy to talk to, and has a laid back learning environment. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know who might be interested in learning the violin, whether young or old like myself.

I love how the viola sounds.
I teach in all music styles and music genres from classical to contemporary to improvisation to solo dynamics etc.
The viola is a great instrument and I love teaching the viola to people who love it.
With the rich, beautiful sounds of the viola I teach my students how to bring out the best in themselves and the instrument.

Great rhythm training teacher.

Mimi is helping me learn how to play the Erhu. Her assessment of my existing knowlege of music theory was very spot on and she is a patient and skilled instructor, even online, which I thought might be difficult. She is encouraging and able to help me understand how to best learn and practice the instrument. I highly recommend her!

Mimi is a true inspiration and very good to work with and learn from My songwriting has improved significantly from working with her. Definitely several points above average!:)

"If I could write anything to hope that you choose Kristen to teach you, imagine it here: _______. That said. She is Amazing, Fantastic, Patient, Fun, Understand, did I say Patient!? I am a 28 year old man that is learning Viola as his "2nd" real instrument. I play piano well, and "campfire" guitar. Kristen is teaching me to read Alto clef and play the Viola. She is teaching at MY pace and not complaining when I come in without having the most practice time accomplished throughout the prior week. She has a flexible schedule and is available for communication (email and phone) between lessons (I've rescheduled many times because my work hours are not constant). She's Great! I hope you let her teach you! Thank you for reading."

"She's the best! My daughter started on violin with the school and then moved on to viola. Finding a viola teacher is no easy task! In fact, finding anything for the viola - music, strings, etc ... is difficult! But Kimberly does a great job and got her off to a wonderful start. We are so incredibly happy to have Kimberly teaching our daughter. Do not rely on your child's school to teach viola - go directly to Kimberly."

"This review is for myself and my daughter who are both taking lessons with Theresa. We give Theresa S. 5 stars each for being a great teacher and 5 stars for her location being very good for us. In addition, she made us feel very comfortable as if we had known her a long time. Her passion for her music and love of teaching makes her very enjoyable to be with. When we hit a bad note, her enthusiasm and the way we kept moving forward, I found, made us strive harder to get it right. We are both looking forward to many weeks under her direction."
