Learn to play viola with technical efficiency and learn to unleash your inner musical self! Lessons are about fostering a learning environment where a student can explore, develop and harness musical and "violistic" ideas for themselves. My teaching focuses on building musical skills as well as critical reasoning skills, work habits, creative problem-solving, and self-awareness. Students will experience a wide range of viola repertoire and etude material.

About Dave

My name is Dave and I LOVE to play and teach the viola! My students find success at school music festivals, youth orchestra auditions, and college auditions. I have experience teaching students from 4th-40th grade and love getting to know the needs of each student.

Dave has been providing an excellent experience for me the past few years I have been having lessons with him. Even during online lessons Dave knows how to explain and demonstrate ideas and concepts. When it comes to taking a person's playing to the next level, I'd always recommend Dave.

I Love to teach viola, because I love the way this instrument sounds. Everyone thinks it is just like violin but actually there is so many different way to bowing and tech from violin. My goal is make hear how viola sounds, it can actually even touching then cello and violin in some melo piece .

First lesson for my 11 year old son with Christina. She has a very nice studio that my son was very comfortable in. She identified his level and sent him home with much more difficult pieces than his previous teachers. He has been practicing more because it is more difficult but also he seems to enjoy the challenge which she created for him. Thanks Christina, I am looking forward to watching him progress under your guidance.

Such a wonderful teacher ! Christina is kind and so patient with kids who are learning music. She is so smart and her knowledge in music is amazing. My daughter has progressed significantly in the last few months with Christina , at a much better pace than all her previous years learning with other tutors. She is training my daughter for ABRSM exam too . Christina has great communication skills and always lets us know the ways to help kids learn better. Her positivity and graceful presence has made my daughters passion for music increase immensely !! Great teacher !!! Highly recommended!!

I have been playing viola for 20+ years and I adore the sound and feel of the instrument. Playing viola has some unique challenges that make it just a bit more special than some of the other string instruments. I like tailor my lessons to the needs of each student. I like to focus on literature written specifically for the viola with some violin transcriptions. I strive to develop good musicianship, understanding of basic theory and good technique in both hands.

"Michael Drobycki was really amazing! I went to him for some feedback on my orchestra excerpts before a big audition I was worried for and he had really great advice not only about the music itself but approaching auditions mentally and physically. He also demonstrated a lot of them and his playing was simply inspiring. If you want to really learn how to play viola, Michael is your guy!"

"She's the best! My daughter started on violin with the school and then moved on to viola. Finding a viola teacher is no easy task! In fact, finding anything for the viola - music, strings, etc ... is difficult! But Kimberly does a great job and got her off to a wonderful start. We are so incredibly happy to have Kimberly teaching our daughter. Do not rely on your child's school to teach viola - go directly to Kimberly."

"Aleksandre is an amazing, very professional music teacher. He's friendly and gets down to business quickly. He assessed my technique and current playing level, helped correct my issues, and explained how I could get a better sound. The foundation and tools he has given me have helped me practice more effectively. I can't believe how quickly I've progressed. I've taken private lessons in the past, but felt stuck. I wish I started with this teacher."
