I believe fundamentally that each student has a unique learning style and benefits from a tailored approach. I do not subscribe to a particular regimented program of study, rather I select the repertoire and etudes to match each student's needs. I believe in choosing both concert music and etudes to challenge individual deficits and work on skills that will apply broadly across the repertoire.

I have a background in both violin and viola and believe that many of the skills which are taught to young violinists are not addressed early enough with young violists. It is my goal to make sure that young violists develop strong technical facility that enables them to develop into mature musicians with ease.

About Joshua

I am a professional orchestral violist and recording artist based in Long Beach, California. However, I am currently living in Denver, Colorado. For the past two seasons, I have primarily served as the assistant principal violist of the Pacific Symphony, while enjoying a flourishing freelance career

First lesson, while a bit glitchy with the lessons thing, the instructor adjusted while we figure out next time. My son really liked working with Josh, and is looking forward to more.

Catherine has been a terrific violin instructor for both my 14 year old daughter and 13 year old son. She is very passionate and methodical in keeping them motivated and engaged in learning the violin. She has been great and the kids love her as a teacher. I highly recommend Catherine for anyone considering an online violin teacher for their teenage kids.

My daughter has resumed her violin playing now that she has lessons with Catherine. She had stopped for a year, and after a few lessons her tone started to sound just like it was when she left off. She improves with each virtual lesson, but most importantly she really enjoys them. I also appreciate that we can schedule lessons
at intervals other than weekly. Thank you, Catherine!

Having taught and performed for over 30 years, I have had the pleasure of working with students of all levels and ages. For beginning students, you can expect to be playing and learning to read music within your first month of taking lessons. I am happy to say that my intermediate and advanced students have met goals of preparing for auditions with success, performance events, and simply studying new technique and repertoire for their own pleasure. I look forward to meeting and sharing your musical endeavors!

Kendra was so helpful and encouraging to our son during his first lesson, while also remaining firm in the techniques she was asking him to practice! She asked throughout the lesson if he had questions or if she needed to clarify anything, which we appreciate because he doesn't always admit if he doesn't understand.
Kay H.
I wrote a review when my daughter was a beginner, as she started to learn viola at her middle school. 4 years later, after 1 all-state, 2 district honors, and 1 London performances - all thanks to Kendra - my daughter continues to learn under Kendra's encouraging, precise instructions. Thank you Kendra!!!!
Angelique M.
I studied viola from 4th grade through college and have had many different teachers. I took a very long break from studying because it was getting to be too much like work and no fun.
Returning as an adult student was a tough decision for me, but Kendra has made it fun again! We've worked through some of my old bad habits that none of my previous teachers addressed and I can play without left hand pain for the first time in my life. It's amazing!

Kendra is patient and encouraging and has really helped me rediscover my joy and love of playing the viola. I can't recommend her enough!

I shall guide you through your passage-work, intonation, vibrato, sliding, presence and solidity. I can also encourage musical intuition and imagination for creative students and teach them how to be independent thinkers. Therefore, I can tailor the student’s personal curriculum to achieve their greatest musicianship.

I teach Suzuki and Traditional methods with utmost observance and give great clarity on the student's progress.

I have performed as a classical soloist, in chamber groups, and with a full orchestra. Additionally, I have experience in modern popular music. I help my students understand their body, and the importance of both mental preparation, and the 
knowledge of how to become completely comfortable during their practice time and their performance time.

I love being able to use my extensive world-wide experiences to galvanize the interests of my students. I have been fortunate to have lived in so many places, to have studied with the ...

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, th

About Chaul

I have been playing the violin for over 27 years. I like to teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced students regardless of their age. I would prefer beginners to take at least one year of piano lessons prior to learning how to the play the violin. This way students can transfer basic music knowl

I have been learning from Chaul for the past two months. She is a very supportive and patient teacher. I was a complete beginner when I first started, but after one to two weeks, I can play easy tunes like Twinkle Twinkle. Whenever I have any questions regarding the violin, she can give me helpful solutions. When I have lessons with her, I can immediately know where I need to improve and gain a few extra tips on violin playing.

I would highly recommend Chaul to you (people who are browsing on Takelessons)!

She not only explains technical placement but she also explains the reasons why they are important. She is great with my 9 year old and really checks for understanding along the way."
