I had a great first lesson with Armen.
He immediately identified some areas of improvement and I really liked his style which is rigorous, demanding and rewarding at the same time.
Can't wait to our next lesson,

I have played viola as long as I have been playing violin. I love the violin, but the viola has a certain richness about it that I cannot keep myself away from.

If you are interested in learning to play the viola or to advance further in your viola studies, I will do my best to take you as far as you are willing to go.

Francesca is very patient and provides a stress free learning environment. I'm having a lot of fun with these lessons and not stressing out.

I have zero music background and even less musical talent. If she can help me learn guitar, she can teach anyone!

I have found that the classical music world can often fall into the trap of being stuffy, competitive, and intimidating. The professional scene can sometimes lose sight of what's really important (that music is supposed to be fun and enjoyable!) and unfortunately drive some people away from this divine art form. Music is everything and everywhere - it is the most intimate, intuitive and beautiful language that transcends the oral and written word. I do emphasize proper technique in lessons, but I do not lose sight of this truth and try my best to keep my students motivated and inspired. With all that being said, I can go at whatever pace the student wishes. I can provide a low pressure, light hearted environment. I am also capable of placing focus on refining proper violin/viola technique - this creates the best results and faster progress. At the end of each lesson, I give clear instructions how to productively practice at home.

About Aekyung

My 9 year old is trying to learn Bohemian Rhapsody on his viola for a talent show and Charles has been very helpful, guiding him through the music with positive reinforcement. We tried a couple other instructors but it wasn't the right fit. Super pleased we found Charles. Look forward to many more lessons to come."
