Private Viola Teacher

I am a professional violinist and violist. I learned to play viola when I was 13 and our school music teacher was forming a string quartet. We had many terrific violinists at the school but no violists so I volunteered to learn. It opened up many worlds and opportunities for me. I received a big scholarship because I played viola when I did my Masters Degree at Boston U. I got chances to travel abroad that were only because I played viola. So it’s a wonderful thing for students to add if they already play violin or to switch to if they prefer the deeper, darker sound. Have fun! Add opportunities to your life!

Brianna is amazing and so sweet and patient with my daughter. She makes the lessons fun and easy to understand. She also goes back over things to make sure they’re ingrained in my daughter’s musical education. We love her as a violin teacher!!!

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 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.

Online Viola Teacher

I have been teaching professionally for the past six years. As a student who struggled myself in nearly every aspect of education, I understand the importance of individualized learning. As a teacher and performer, I look to find relationships between the emotional and intellectual facets of music. By doing this, I try to uncover the mystery of violin playing, allowing my students to gain an understanding that will last with them forever.

Every single student posseses the potential to fulfill his or her violinistic dreams. I cater my teaching around the goals of each student, while still instilling a high artistic integrity.

Though I center each lesson around building a superior technical foundation, duet playing, the theory of harmony, and aural skills are integral parts of my teaching. I strive for my students to develope a beautiful, in-tune, pure sound that can directly connect to their own emotional palette.

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

"We LOVE Susanna!
My son decided to play the viola, out of the blue (not for school, just for his own sake), so we went to TakeLessons to find him a teacher.
Susanna is so patient, and supportive. He has steadily increased his knowledge and abilities with her guidance.
My son always finishes his lesson and says, that was a really good lesson! Music to my mama ears!
We highly recommend Susanna!"
