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.

Danielle was a very intuitive teacher- she listened to my goals, and helped provide me with a clear path toward them, conquering some of the basics, scales, pentatonic, and such... but also some of the more advanced nuances like harmonics and vibrato. If you are trying to learn violin or fiddle, I'd recommend Danielle.

Online Viola Teacher

I've been teaching viola for 7 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to get familiar with the viola and learn basic skills on the instrument and as time goes on you'll be able to play songs and read music. I specialize in classical and modern pop, typically use Hal Leonard and Suzuki books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: piano for accompaniment, music stand. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Krisztina is amazing. She has taught me a lot in just a few lessons, and she takes time to respond to my emails and even send me personal videos outside of my lessons! I am lucky to have chosen her :)

Online Viola Teacher

During the first lesson we will get acquainted and you can tell me about your history with the instrument and what you would like to learn. Then I will come up with fun technique building exercises so you can play with ease. Then we usually work on a goal piece. For the piece I will give you practice methods and ways to play through the pieces with a beautiful tone. Viola is fun and expect to have a great time!

About Daniel

I switched to the viola at age 19 and pursued both a bachelor's and master's in Viola Performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music and the New England Conservatory of Music. Music is always a journey and I have been luc

Daniel was friendly, approachable, and made me very comfortable. He was positive and encouraging and used every minute of the lesson to the max...I learned SO MUCH in just one lesson. You can tell he really wants to you to succeed. I can't wait to see where we will go!

My husband and I were extremely pleased with the progress our son Thomas made with Dan. Thomas started playing last year and was progressing faster than the rest of his third grade class which is why we were looking for a private teacher to help him along. Before taking lessons with Dan I had a hard time getting Thomas to practice. Thomas has begun practicing all on his own because he has been genuinely inspired. Dan is a true professional who always on time and in a good mood to teach. He was so patient with Thomas and developed practice techniques unique to Thomas's situation. Dan is more than just a violin teacher, he is dedicated to inspiring each student to love music. Thanks Dan!!!

"We have tried a few instructors for strings and they were not the right fit for us. We finally struck GOLD with Charles! Very professional, not at all condescending with his feedback (this was our problem with a couple others), taught my son things he has not learned in school in terms of correct form/placement of viola, and bow technique. We are very excited for the next lesson!"
