She was amazing. Kind and encouraging and so inspiring. My daughter had a lot of anxiety going in but just glows whenever she talks about her first lesson. Can’t wait for the next!

Private Viola Teacher

Viola is the glue that bind the violin and cello in any strings ensemble. Whether you are a beginner, violin transplant, or switch hitter. I will work with you to become a proud member of this close-knit group. An excellent choice of instrument for someone arriving late to the music game, or someone who wants to become a more versatile violinist.

For beginners, I prefer using the "Essential Elements for Strings" book, which offers students a head start to what many school will use in their classrooms. For intermediate students, the "Suzuki" books offers repertoire that has become a rite of passage for any string player. Advanced students can expect pieces that are tailor selected for them to show off their unique strengths and address their weakness.

While attending New York University (NYU), he majored in music education and studied with Mark Steinberg of the Brentano String Quartet.

"My son has taken viola from Miss Calvino for several years now. She has made it fun for him. He has learned a lot and has even begun playing in church some now. He plays multiple instruments and the viola has been most difficult. Having Miss Calvino as a teacher has helped take the pressure off because she wants him to enjoy it, not just perfect it. She is very encouraging to him, which makes him want to keep working to improve."
