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.

I’ve had three lessons so far and I feel so supported by Gail. I’m an adult student and Gail is very patient with me and kind. I actually really enjoy going to my lessons! She has already taught me so many handy tricks that she learned from many years of experience. I’m brand new to the violin and Gail is excellent at helping me with my hand placement and I feel confident that what she’s teaching me is really setting me up for success and good habits with the violin.
Ryker B.
My son was excited about Ms Gail’s knowledge of the viola.

I Love my lessons with Ms. Gail! She makes the lesson fun and is always encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone and try an exercise before a scheduled lesson. I would highly recommend Ms. Gail!

Whether you're 3 or 103, if you're playing viola (or starting to play!) I hope you're EXCITED about it!! Over the years, my students have said that their lessons are/have been their favorite times of each week. I believe learning to play viola should be full of joy, learning, thinking, and feeling. Bring that joy alive for yourself by partnering with me as your musical guide. I bring over 30 years of experience and pure joy to my work, and I'd love to share that with you!

My greatest joy is sharing music, and I love to help students discover their own creative voice through their instrument! I am a versatile classical violinist and violist, fiddle player, songwriter, improviser, and cross-genre musician with over 20 years' experience playing the violin and 8 years' experience teaching violinists of all ages and abilities.

I'm currently only enrolling students online, but I will be available to teach in-person lessons in the Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN, metro area and in Northfield, MN, after it is safe to do so.

Green makes my son’s online violin lessons engaging while still being purposeful and focused with the repertoire. My son reports feeling motivated and encouraged and his confidence and skills grow with each lesson. Thank you, Green, for all your passion and hard work!
Elizabeth K.
My kids love working with Green! She is patient and clear, and she can tailor her style to their different ages and ability levels. Plus she makes them laugh :) I highly recommend Green as a teacher!
Lance
Green is a dedicated, caring professional who quickly connected with our daughter and developed an ongoing plan to facilitate her growth and development as a musician. Green is well-prepared for each lesson, and communicates expectations clearly with encouragement, challenge, and appropriate support to our child. Our daughter says that studying violin is fun again, and possibly more than ever! We have observed a great measure of improvement just in these last 3 months of lessons with Green, and are so thankful for her musical mentorship to our daughter. You will be blessed and very grateful to enroll with Green while she still has space for students in her teaching schedule. I predict that one day soon there will be a long waiting list and many flourishing young artists benefiting from their study with a world-class talent and first-rate person.

I went to him for some feedback on my orchestra excerpts before a big audition I was worried for and he had really great advice not only about the music itself but approaching auditions mentally and physically. He also demonstrated a lot of them and his playing was simply inspiring. If you want to really learn how to play viola, Michael is your guy!"

"Michael is the rare pairing of a professional performer and fantastic teacher of viola & violin technique. I have seen the benefits of his pedagogy first-hand in my middle school orchestra classroom in Plano ISD. I have been lucky enough to have him teach some of my students for over 3 years. He has helped many of my students overcome barriers in their practicing and performing. With your commitment to putting in quality practice time, lessons with Michael will certainly result in significant musical growth."
