Lessons are fun. My philosophy is that students should have music in their lives and benefit from the lessons they take now for years to come. Learning to play a musical instrument will help students with math skills, study habits, and develop a skill that will last for a lifetime.

After 3 months students will understand the fundamentals of their string instrument, know how to care for their instrument, warm up properly, be able to read and play introductory passages. After 6 months the student will have learned basic music theory, how to read music, and have advanced through playing multiple songs.

About Betsy

Music is the biggest passion in my life. I love being able to share that gift with my students, and look forward to their progress as much as my own. I continue to grow and develop as a musician, and love connecting with people through music. My students all learn to love and appreciate music, t

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!

sarah is very good at explaining things and if somehow time is lost she will go out of her way to makeup that time even if it was the students fault which is very appreciated. sarah has a good attitude and is great at keeping focus during lessons so things follow as scheduled, she’s also great at explaining how to practice outside of lessons which really helps with growth for students in my opinion. overall, she’s great! 10/10 would recommend !!
