Emil was a great instructor, very knowledgable and patient. I have improved in all areas thanks to his instruction. He would even stay late occasionally to play violin solos with me playing rhythm guitar!

I am an outgoing, positive teacher who has a passion for music and for sharing this passion with students in a fun and relatable way. I don't approach every student the same way - as unique individuals, I learn about the student's goals and personality, and will create customized lessons based on the information and relationship we form. Knowledge of the instrument, music theory, and basic fundamentals are building blocks of any lesson, but the sky is the limit!!

About Regina

I was inspired to play the violin after seeing the local middle school orchestra perform when I was 8 years old. Since beginning group violin lessons the following school year, I have been consistently involved in developing my passion for and involvement in music in versatile ways -participating i

Ms Regina was wonderful! My son absolutely loved having her as a teacher. She really spent time with him on the basics of reading music and tempo, and we could see his skills progress. Thank you, Ms Regina!

I have been playing classical violin and viola since I was 11 years old and am now 24 and currently working on my Master's of Arts. I am a firm believer that everyone can learn music. No matter the age, I give my all to each and every student. I also place an importance on tailoring every lesson to what each student wants to accomplish or what they need/ want. My goal for every student is to reach their maximum potential and most importantly that we enjoy making music together.

All of my beginner students begin with Essential Elements Book 1. After completion of the book, I move to Book 2 that focuses on scales and technique. Studies are supplemented with additional scale and technique books as we progress.

My intermediate and advanced students begin by playing a piece, etude, exercise, etc. that they have been focusing on. This allows me to assess their current level and how to progress.

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 also involve mental and physical practice technique.

"My daughter has been taking lessons from Will for about a year. We are lucky enough to live near Athens, so lessons take place at our home. I have been so pleased with Will. He is a great teacher - enthusiastic, kind, patient, and knowledgeable. Even though he has many students, he always remembers exactly what they were working on. He takes interest in my daughter's life and will ask her how marching band is going, or other things about school. I especially like that Will is someone that she can look up to as an example of hard work and perseverance. He's not only a great teacher, but he's just a good person, and I am so glad we found him!"

"I absolutely loved my viola lessons with Will! He began by asking questions and asking me to play a few things to gauge what level I was at. I came into these lessons after not having played for 15 years. He was very encouraging and very positive. I asked him to help me with my form in order to gain a better foundation, and he did so well at focusing on that and giving me such helpful pointers. He plays the viola and it was good to hear some of his experience. I also loved learning more of the background and history of the type of music and the techniques we went over. I feel like that adds so much depth to the learning experience. He is very knowledgeable as well as personable. He also never wasted any time during our lessons. He was very good at pacing us so we could get through the different things I had practiced, and yet I didn't feel rushed at all. I would highly recommend Will to anyone (no matter your level)! I was very pleased with my experience and will definitely seek him out for future lessons."
