I appreciate Marc’s knowledge, professionalism, and teaching methods. I also appreciate his practice of social distancing and mask wearing. He was thorough, good-humored, and patient during my lesson.
Roger H.
He is very good with me. I'm not a very good student. I have bad habits and I'm overly sensitive to criticism, yet he has not made me feel bad at all about my playing if you want to call it that. I also have a short attention span and can't read music fluently. But his patience is much appreciated, and each week get a little better at it all. I recommend him to those trying their best to sound a little better.

It was really good information and I had a lot of fun.

Having taught and performed for over 30 years, I have had the pleasure of working with students of all levels and ages. For beginning students, you can expect to be playing and learning to read music within your first month of taking lessons. I am happy to say that my intermediate and advanced students have met goals of preparing for auditions with success, performance events, and simply studying new technique and repertoire for their own pleasure. I look forward to meeting and sharing your musical endeavors!

Kendra was so helpful and encouraging to our son during his first lesson, while also remaining firm in the techniques she was asking him to practice! She asked throughout the lesson if he had questions or if she needed to clarify anything, which we appreciate because he doesn't always admit if he doesn't understand.
Kay H.
I wrote a review when my daughter was a beginner, as she started to learn viola at her middle school. 4 years later, after 1 all-state, 2 district honors, and 1 London performances - all thanks to Kendra - my daughter continues to learn under Kendra's encouraging, precise instructions. Thank you Kendra!!!!
Angelique M.
I studied viola from 4th grade through college and have had many different teachers. I took a very long break from studying because it was getting to be too much like work and no fun.
Returning as an adult student was a tough decision for me, but Kendra has made it fun again! We've worked through some of my old bad habits that none of my previous teachers addressed and I can play without left hand pain for the first time in my life. It's amazing!

Kendra is patient and encouraging and has really helped me rediscover my joy and love of playing the viola. I can't recommend her enough!

Have you been playing for a long time, or have you never picked up the instrument before? Whether you are a child or an adult, I have a style of teaching for you. I've been playing since I was a child and have a special place in my heart for the is instrument. I actually began learning from a fiddle player and trained classically later. If you want to learn how to succeed in playing this rewarding and satisfying style, this is the place for you.
Are wondering why every time you hit a certain note, it squeaks, or crunches, or sounds glassy? Or maybe you can't quite read the notes. Perhaps you are no stranger to the instrument, but need improvement of musicianship, expression, etc. Let me help you master the skills you're trying to achieve. With my help, you can make breathtaking music!
