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

Diane is an amazing teacher!! My two daughters (8 and 12yrs old) have been taking lessons from Diane for over 2 years and they love her lessons! Diane is very kind-hearted, very positive, and patient. They have a great violin rental and purchasing program with a very reasonable price and her husband as a professional luthier, setting up all the instruments for us and whenever the kids need to switch a violin size, they take care of it. We are very happy with Diane and it's hard to find a teacher like her.

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!

Whether you're 3 or 103, if you're playing viola (or starting to play!) I hope you're EXCITED about it!! Over the years, my students have said that their lessons are/have been their favorite times of each week. I believe learning to play viola should be full of joy, learning, thinking, and feeling. Bring that joy alive for yourself by partnering with me as your musical guide. I bring over 30 years of experience and pure joy to my work, and I'd love to share that with you!

Thank you so much for your interest in taking lessons with me! I look forward to working with you/your student to increase your understanding, appreciation, and love for music.

A typical lesson will consist of working on scales, etudes, and an assigned solo piece. Any additional time left in the lesson can be used to work on audition prep, chamber music, orchestra music, a “fun” piece that the student chooses, etc. Students will receive a Google Doc containing their lesson notes and assignments immediately after the lesson. I also provide my students with supplemental video recordings to provide additional instruction on top of their weekly lessons.

Recommended Lesson Times:
Beginner: 30 minutes
Beginner-Intermediate: 45 minutes
Intermediate-Advanced: 60 minutes

Abigail is the best! My daughter has been taking viola lessons from Abigail for over a year. Abigail is always well prepared for her lessons - she selects appropriate music tailored to her student's skill levels, she gives clear instructions and detailed notes, she is flexible when it comes to schedule conflicts and most important of them all, she is the reason my daughter loves her viola lessons! With Abigail, music lesson is not toil, but refreshing amusement!
Taneesha
I started my lessons with Ms. Abigail in 2018 when I was 14, up until 2020 when we started to have online lessons. She helped me pass my Level 5 CM (certificate of merit) test, and then jump from Level 5 to Level 7 in less than a year. Overall a very encouraging and knowledgeable teacher :).

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.
Rylee
We had great encounter with Ms. Danielle. Lovely woman full of knowledge,personality, and a love for instruments. She has a way to convey her expertise to her students. Wouldn’t hesitate to utilize her in our future!
