Hello! I'm a professional violinist/violist with over 20 years of playing experience. I started on viola at the age of 10, and began studying violin as well when I got into college. I have since performed all over the U.S, and internationally, even having the opportunity to perform with stars such as Lady Gaga and Imagine Dragons, and performing for U.S. president Jimmy Carter! From making appearances with orchestras as a featured soloist, to holding residencies on some of the biggest properties on the Las Vegas strip as a cover artist, to performing for major events such as Latin Grammys and Tedx, to touring the country playing country, jazz, and rock music, my broad range of experience can help any student, beginning to advanced, accel in their craft.

I studied music education with an emphasis on viola/violin performance at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, where I received a Bachelor's degree. Aside from a background in classical music, I have extensive knowledge in many genres

About Rahmaan

I first picked up the viola when I was 10 years old in sixth grade orchestra class, and I haven't put it down since. While most professional musicians were certain of their career paths from a young age, I had no plans to pursue music professionally, until an opportunity to perform at Carnegie Hall

Ms. Clarice is an all-star teacher and a extremely talented violinist. I had the honor of working with Clarice as an undergrad student at Arizona State University. Clarice was the teaching assistant for Danwen Jiang's Violin Studio. Clarice helped shape me to the violinist I am today, she helped instill a confidence in me I did not have before. She helped bring out passion to my playing in my performances. Clarice has a vast knowledge of violin pedagogy, technique, repertoire and music theory. Ms. Clarice loves each of her students and it shows through her character, you can tell she truly loves what she does and has a passion for teaching music. I am happy to call her not only my former but my friend as well. if you are looking for a teacher who makes learning fun and pushes you to greatness, then I highly recommend working with Clarice Collins!

Melodies in your head and a song in your heart, but your voice isn't so great, or maybe it is. I can teach your to connect the physicality and express yourself with a Violin or Viola. (soprano or Alto). The tough part is learning hold to hold the violin properly. It takes a couple months to train the muscles a new stance. With my help your posture and breathing will become as one with the music It's not a myth, the violin is the most complex instrument to learn.

Comprehensive program with ear training and reading music.

Raycurt is not only knowledgeable, he is extremely skilled. He is thorough and maximizes time by providing superb instruction. My son looks forward to attending his classes; and I am a parent who is beyond pleased with Raycurt’s level of expertise.
Ben E.
This was a really unfortunate and wasted experience. Raycurt was wildly unprepared to teach. He brought a broken metronome and almost no sheet music/lesson plan. I had spoken both to the sales rep and Raycurt himself prior to the lesson and he was still fully unprepared.

I also explained my level of experience and was assured Raycurt was qualified to teach at the level I needed, but he came off as less knowledgable than me, which was particularly disappointing.

Worst of all, after multiple hours of speaking on the phone, I couldn't get my money back for this lesson.

I'd strongly recommend not using takelessons at all, they've put a horrible taste in my mouth for their entire service.

Hi, I'm Elizabeth! I teach private viola, violin, and piano lessons, and I also tutor music theory and history! I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Music degree in Viola Performance from Shenandoah Conservatory, and just recently with my Master of Music degree from The Hartt School in Spring 2021. During my time at Shenandoah, I worked through the school as tutor, helping my peers through music history and theory courses. It always made me so happy seeing them improve in their classes!

I have been teaching viola, violin, and piano for four years, and it is my passion! It brings me so much joy to enrich my students' lives with music, and to watch their progress as they grow. While I don't expect the majority of my students to become professional musicians, I think it's vital that we all, as humans, learn the language of music so we can communicate and understand the world better. My biggest hope is that I make a difference in my students' lives.

"I've been learning violin from Autumn for about a year and a half now. She is incredibly patient, offers encouragement, and is kind in all of my lessons. She isn't afraid to challenge you and never puts limitations on you. Her lessons are always fun and you can rest assured that you will learn the correct technique and sound. She never gives up on you and never shows any frustration! I couldn't have asked for a better or more outstanding teacher! Thank you! :)"

"Dustin Newbold has been my violin teacher for nearly eight years.
He is an accomplished musician and outstanding teacher, always patient, encouraging, and professional. He brought me through the very early stages of the violin as a beginner student, to now playing first violin in the community orchestra.
He has not only helped me become a better musician, but has been very knowledgeable in bringing me through the rough times of bowing, tuning, and even selecting the appropriate violin, strings, and accessories.
Dustin has the sensitivity to understand the student's level of ability and skill, and he creates a path for improvement. Lessons are always challenging and fun.
I highly recommend Dustin to any student who is serious about learning music, and especially to those to aim to be proficient on their instrument."
