Private Viola Teacher

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!

Hello….the viola is a wonderful instrument and is tuned an octave higher than the cello. The viola's open-pitched strings are: from hi to low…A, D, G and C. No E string. The viola is played like the violin but with more natural arm weight as the strings are thicker. The viola also comes in fractional sizes: 12 inch up to 17 inch. A new viola student needs to be fitted for the correct size so the instrument is not so big and heavy that it will case frustration with playing and possibly an injury from being too big…this is especially true for children and adult women. We have viola's for rent, professional set up with good quality strings.

About Diane

I love to teach the violin, viola and fiddle. I really enjoy working with adult beginners to help them discover music. You are never too old to learn! I also enjoy working with young children and youth to establish a wonderful foundation for the student. I have special training in working with chi

Was my first violin lesson today, and Diane is very thorough and easy to follow. She is excited about the violin and not just a teacher so I already know that I have a great teacher. I am so excited about my journey with her!
Amber A.
Diane is a fabulous teacher!! When my daughter wanted to start violin and fiddle I knew I would need to know something about violin to help her at home. So, Diane taught my 5 year old and me. Diane really has an amazing bond with my daughter and has truly become one of our family... She makes the lessons fun and engaging for my daughter... She takes a personal interest in her students and gears the lessons to their level. Diane is always willing to work with you when it comes to schedules as well, for example: summer time vacations.... I highly recommend Diane as an instructor. She knows her instrument, her theory, and how to convey the information to adults and small children. We have now been taking lessons for a couple of years and my daughter still looks forward to them and that is due to the investment that Diane has personally made in their relationship!

Online Viola Teacher

I have over ten years of experience teaching violin and viola to students of all ages and backgrounds. I teach children as young as 5 years old up through adult. As a teacher, I cater to varying learning styles and use many different techniques to fit my students’ individual needs. I believe that no one learns in the same way, and as a result of this philosophy, I adapt my teaching to each specific, unique situation. I want music to be a fun activity where students can feel comfortable expressing themselves!

Online Viola Teacher

I've been teaching violin and viola for almost 20 years and many of my students have won prestigious placements in the local orchestras. If you are a dedicated and curious student, you'll be able to improve your understanding of our craft and as time goes on you'll be able to take some interesting steps on this path. Since my background training happens to be in the best traditions of Russian violin school, my big emphasis is on the techniques and musicality. I use all kinds of books and methods, from Suzuki to Schradieck. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Mariam is energetic, clear and kind. She is very educated and experienced. I come from a Suzuki background and had not played for a few years. Mariam was able to work with me easily.
Teresa S.
Wonderful exciting teacher

I have had several lessons now and have not only learned a lot, but enjoyed my lesson time. Mariam is very fun and pushes me to try new things while keeping me reviewing the old.
I get a high quality teacher in my home every week that wants me to improve as much as I want to improve my violin skills. After just two lessons people I have played for have commented on just how much I have improved lately.

"Susanna is so patient and kind and most of all KNOWLEGEABLE. I know I am in extremely capable hands. My first lesson I left feeling excited, motivated and wanting more. (Even though I'm a beginner and I don't sound amazing, I know I will get there with the guidance of Susanna)"

"If you’re looking for a dedicated, knowledgeable and patient strings teacher, you will love Mrs. Heins. Both of my sons have been taking lessons from Mrs. Heins for several years (one for viola and one for cello). They have learned so much under her instruction, such as earning All-County and All-State honors. They also practice their live performance skills twice a year during informal musical concerts. Mrs. Heins also offers participation in the Royal Conservatory Music Development program, which can earn your child credit for college. She is a gem and should you choose her, you won’t be disappointed."

"Elisa is a very responsible, skillful, and sweet teacher

Before Elisa moved to Ventura, CA, she was a master student and taught in IP piano school and Kwong Kow Chinese School in Boston, MA. My daughter, Sarina, was one of her students. My daughter loves her so much and made good progress when Elisa was teaching her. Elisa made Sarina relax and comfortable so that she was enjoying the learning process; she emphasized on skill and poses, she tried hard to help the students to get to the best they could. She is reliable as you can talk with her about the timing change and make up lessions. She came to our house to say goodbye and hug Sarina before she left. She is a great teacher that you can count on and you will enjoy her teaching."

"Couldn't have asked for more!

We found Jessica through the Suzuki Association Directory. I was looking for a teacher that taught through the Suzuki method and she ended up being a perfect fit for my VERY energetic son. Patient, flexible (lessons in our home), laidback and even willing to drop by on her free time to fix a few broken strings and stray bridges
We could definitely hear my sons progress after each lesson...very pleased and would definitely recommend!!! :-)"
