About Ray

Ray is an amazing teacher. My 11-year-old has high-functioning autism and has a great interest in learning music. I was hesitant to hire just any teacher, as many teachers don't have the patience and understanding to work with special needs kids. However, Ray has been not only patient, but he has an exceptional way of teaching my son in a way that he would understand and retain the information. Ray is creative, intuitive, and experienced. My son is very happy and enjoys the lesson every single time. Thanks Ray.

*** Lesson Details ***
I strongly believe that, if every child would be provided with an ideal environment, would gain extraordinary ability. There are no exceptions. No one can tell how able man is by the nature. What is known is the ability that is spoiled or developed. It cannot be denied that most children speak their native languages beautifully by learning about 3000-4000 words by age 5 or 6. Nothing can clearer demonstrate of the original power of the human mind. Through the years of studying and teaching music I realized that this is the most important concept for developing each kid's talent, to increase his or her ability to the maximum. Therefore I am combining the great methods of teaching violin. The Suzuki method and the Russian school method. Suzuki method helps at the earliest stage of playing an instrument and I am using later Russian school method for more advanced period of studying.

Tigran is a skillful, kind, patient and honest teacher. I’m a beginning adult learner and have been progressing very quickly with his help. Tigran’s teaching is structured and organized while keeping the lessons challenging and interesting enough to want to keep going. I value his time and knowledge. I also intend to continue learning the violin from Tigran for the long term. HIGHLY recommend!

Viola can be an exciting instrument to learn and master. So how you get there is up to you, but practice is required to succeed with any instrument. Taking lessons with me, you'll be provided with technique that was developed by esteemed artists and pioneers, such as Lionel Tertis. I have a B.Mus in Performance from Northern Illinois where I studied with the very talented and musical, Anthony DeVroye of the Avalon String Quartet. Additionally, I've attended the Chicago College of Performing Arts and studied there with Lawrence Neuman of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Roger Chase -a former student of Tertis- who is a major figure in the Viola world for his artistry and masterful control of the viola.
The study of chamber music has afforded me the honor of working with even more musicians, including Shmeul Ashkenasi and Mathias Tacke, both of the Vermeer Quartet.
Should a student decide to take lessons with me, we will begin on laying a solid foundation of technique on top of ...

My name is Max Simon and I would love to teach you viola. I have played viola since I was a child and I have a bachelor's degree in bass performance. I did not go to school for viola but I have had ample experience with string instruments from the entire family. I had taken lessons as a child on the instrument and I know the technique well. Thanks for reading my profile and I wish you success with your studies!

Max was very helpful as a teacher. He gave me a lot of good insight into picking the bass for bluegrass music. I've been primarily playing bowed music. I plan to continue my lessons with him.

"I've never had any experience with orchestral instruments before. After one lesson with Calvin, I'm learning to read music again. He showed me proper technique as well. I feel that I will be progressing quickly under Calvin's instruction. My first lesson flew by, and I learned so much in a very short amount of time. His attention to smaller details in technique are very helpful as well. I absolutely recommend Calvin as a viola instructor!"

"She's the best! My daughter started on violin with the school and then moved on to viola. Finding a viola teacher is no easy task! In fact, finding anything for the viola - music, strings, etc ... is difficult! But Kimberly does a great job and got her off to a wonderful start. We are so incredibly happy to have Kimberly teaching our daughter. Do not rely on your child's school to teach viola - go directly to Kimberly."
