An experienced and versatile musician with a passion for building technique and finding students' unique artistic voice.

Students of mine study standard concertos, Bach, Suzuki materials, and scales. They also work on fiddle and jazz tunes, improvisation, and pop songs. The most important thing is to find what lights a spark in each student!

About Zachary

I am a violinist and violist with experience performing and studying all over the world. I am a trained classical musician, but I also have a passion for improvisation, hip hop, pop, jazz, and fiddle music! My strengths lie in building students' technical foundation while helping them find their art

I decided that I wanted to learn how to play an instrument much later in life than most. On top of the late start, I knew little to nothing about music. All of these factors discouraged me for a long time and some teachers I've tried added to that anxiety. One day I came across Zachary's profile and decided to give it one more chance , little did I know it would be one of the single greatest decisions I've ever made for myself. Coming to the table with as little knowledge as I had, including not being a young kid, was not a problem at all for Zachary. He has an ease about him when he teaches and is always patient and kind. Never once did he talk down to me or make me feel like something was impossible.
If you have a chance to have him as your teacher, you will not regret it. Let him help you learn, improve, and bring out the very best in you like he did with me.

I love Zachary's teaching method. He is very friendly and easy to understand. He is very passionate about teaching and it shows. I have progressed a lot after only a few lessons, and I will continue to take lessons from him. I highly recommend him :)

Private Viola Teacher

Those who want to play viola are different- I love teaching people how to play this awesome instrument! The most important things in playing viola are intonation (since the viola often harmonizes with other instruments) and bow control, as that is the key to a good sound. You'll also learn rhythm and how to read music. Come learn the best instrument in the orchestra with me!
*Note: at this time I am only taking on intermediate students, as I can only teach lessons online at this time due to the pandemic. I would consider anyone who has been playing for at least 1 year to be intermediate level.

About Crystal

My name is Crystal and I've played viola for over 25 years. I can teach both violin and viola. I play professionally and just for fun. I have a bachelor's in music from Vanderbilt University where I studied with Kathryn Plummer. l love teaching people of all ages how to make music! *please note: in

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.

Private Viola Teacher

Welcome to my violin and viola studio! I believe that every student can enjoy the process of studying an instrument, and can learn to play with ease and joy. As a result, I work to determine each student's learning style, look for ways to encourage individual ownership of learning, and adapt my approach to help meet each student’s needs and goals. I teach both Suzuki and traditional lessons, and draw from a variety of musical styles and approaches to help students develop a broad range of skills that include a strong technical foundation, ear training, sight-reading, ensemble playing, and musical self-expression. Through this approach, I hope to help students develop a lifelong love for music that will serve them in all future endeavors, musical or otherwise.

Emily is an excellent teacher. I have no knowledge of music at all and she has been very patient in teaching me the basics. I have done 5 lessons with her (one in person and 4 online) and she has been very helpful thoughout. She made sure to send me copies of the lessons and recommended books, so I could practice offline.

Private Viola Teacher

I love playing viola and I can help you improve your viola skills! I can help prepare young students for auditions, better orchestra skills, and help with technique. I especially love adult students. Maybe you want to revisit the instrument you gave up as a youngster. I can help you get back on track.

About Kimberly

I am active as a music educator, having taught violin, viola, and music both privately and in the classroom. I have been a member of the National Association for Music Education and the American String Teachers Association. I am known for my gentle and encouraging way of instructing my students, yet

Kimberly is patient!! Gives clear instruction which immediately improves my playing. I am so happy with my choice of instructor!
Kent Looney
Kimberly Simkins has been a wonderful instructor for my daughter, as she works to improve her Viola playing. She is very interactive with my daughter and provides good feedback for my daughter's Viola playing.

I have been happy with this instruction and I hope others have a chance to see how personable and skilled she is.
Elyssa
Mrs. Simpkins is a great teacher and instructor and knows exactly how to make great players. I have Dyslexia and signed up for lessons after playing for a few years. Mrs. Simpkins knows exactly how to teach me and has shaped me into a great player. If you are wanting to learn to play Violin or Viola, or want to improve she is the teacher to go to. She is through, and has a great ability to shape amazing players. She got me into senior clinic and in the last concert I was placed 3rd chair mainly because of her instruction. I hope to continue lessons with her for the next year until I graduate. Although she has not been my teacher for all 9 years I have been playing, she has been my teacher for the past 4 years and I have loved having her teach me during every lesson. Having Mrs. Simpkins as your teacher, will make your playing improve significantly. I highly recommend her to everyone!

"My daughter (12) LOVES Miss Phoebe. We were so excited for our daughter to have private lessons even during COVID craziness. Phoebe is very patient and works well with kids. She is very communicative and has even telephoned when one of our lessons couldn't work out due to technical difficulties. My daughter's music teacher has been impressed with her growth, even though there is not in person orchestra at her school."

"It was our first lesson with Charles for my 9 year old son. We finally found the right instructor! Without being condescending, he taught my son some basics about holding the instrument correctly, how to bring it up for play.... essentially proper playing etiquette that he is not getting at school from a teacher who is far too stretched with a large class of multiple instruments and only ONE teacher. (She really needs an assistant) I think he is going to learn a LOT and I love that he corrects him without being rude nor condescending. I would give him 5 stars but it's our first lesson. Will review again after a month and hopefully gloat some more about him! :) ~ Very pleased!"
