Viola is my primary instrument! I started playing continuously in 6th grade and it was the instrument on which I concentrated in college. I love the rich sound of the viola and the inner harmonies we get to play in ensembles.

About Joshua
*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring my instrument and a music stand for myself, and I assume the student will have their own as well. There are specific collections of songs and exercises that the student should be ready to purchase based on their level of playing and will be determined after our initial lesson. Students will want to continue to invest in other collections as they progress and I will occasionally provide additional materials as appropriate.

*** Specialties ***
I have a Bachelor of Music Education and taught middle school strings in the Houston area public schools. I utilize methods of Kodaly (certified Level I) in creating a holistic approach to teaching music and use the songs and progression of the Suzuki School for beginners. I incorporate ear-training, music theory, and music history into learning about mus
ic in addition to the mechanics of playing a string instrument. My ultimate goal is to help each student become their own teacher!

***Special Needs***
I am more than happy to explore ways in which students with special needs can engage music through listening, reading, writing, singing and even playing an instrument...let's talk!!

Being that this was my first lesson, it was mostly talking. However, Josh seems to be a very nice patient teacher and I look forward to working with him. Also looking forward to hitting some notes on the violin. 🤗

I started playing Viola at age twenty, moving from the Violin. The transition was great because being a violinist you have the technical advantage and speed that most violists don't have.

I have played professionally all around the world from Australia to Europe and to America. The US government recently recognized me as one of the best Violists from Australia and granted me with an extraordinary ability visa. I not only play classical music in orchestras but I also play an electric instrument with DJ's in nightclubs.

I love passing on my knowledge to new students to help them grow as a musician, nothing is more satisfying to see someone learn how to play an instrument and watch them really enjoy the process.

About James
I started my musical career at the age of 2, on the piano, shortly afterwards moving to the violin, and the viola. Earning the music scholarship at school for best classical musician, and later on the scholarship for best orchestral instrumentalist at the world renowned music conservatoire WAAPA (West Australia Academy of Performing Arts). Earning my first diploma (A.Mus.A) at age 14, my music has taken me all around the world. I've played such places as the Australian High Commission, Rheingoldhalle in Mannhein, Dvorak hall in Prague, Australian embassy in London, Disneyland in Paris, and the opening the Australian embassy in Berlin, all before the age of 18.

Most recently through my many musical endeavors, I have been granted a visa of extraordinary ability as musician to enter the United States.

Since then I have lead the LADSO
viola section, played with the West LA Symphony Orchestra, played alongside Laryn Hill, a show presented by Quincy Jones, played in movie orchestras, recorded for studio sessions, performed electronic violin for private parties and nightclubs across the US.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching music since age 11. My mother is a concert pianist and I started off by teaching her students the violin. I have taught ever since and I love it. I have studied in Australia, Europe and the US.

I will help you create a fantastic technical base so you will be able to play with ease as your skill level develops, all while keeping the lessons fun and engaging.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, Violin, Viola, Music Stand, General Teaching Aids, Recording Equipment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a music stand and basic materials but the student is expected to have their own instruments and to buy the music I recommend. I will help source and instruments and materials.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical music. I also teach other styles of music including improv, how to play pop music and can help you reach any musical goal. In Australia I used the AMEB syllabus. Which is the Australian examination system for music. I also teach Suzuki method and similar methods. I like creating a great foundation with a lot of exercises and scale patterns to really build up a solid base.

I'm an experienced and dedicated musician, having played with Orchestras and Chamber groups throughout my state. My lessons are focused on relaxation, and am as laid back or strict as the student needs. Whether you're a beginner or advanced, shooting to be a church player or a pro, I have taught students for that and am the teacher for you.

We will first discuss playing goals, and past experience and then I will make a lesson plan based around this discussion. We will then move forward accordingly. We will practice scales, different technique exercises, and repertoire.

A private Viola instructor for almost 15 years, my students have gone on to participate in prestigious Youth Symphonies, and festival orchestras at the Regional and All-State levels. I focus on building a strong foundation of bow and left hand technique, with students participating in selecting repertoire they enjoy for auditions, talent shows, or just for fun! I specialize in classical, but have worked in multiple styles, and utilize a variety of books for scales, exercises, and solo pieces.

About Lisa
Lisa has a Bachelor's of Viola Performance from Brigham Young University, where she had access to little known music in the Primrose International Viola Archive. At BYU she studied primarily with Dr. Claudine Bigelow, Dr. LeeAnn Morgan, and Scott Lewis of the Utah Symphony.

Lisa has been teaching viola for almost 15 years, beginning with the co-founding of a non-profit program at her local high school teaching low-income elementary students, and spanning over a decade of private instruction for students of all ages and levels. She is well-versed in multiple methods such as Galamian, Flesch, Auer, Primrose, Kreutzer and more!

Lisa gears instruction to the needs of the student. Although she teaches primarily classical style, many students like to supplement with more modern music, and Lisa is adept at choosing appropriate solos and e
xercises to support techniques in any genre. Lisa believes music lessons should be fun and help students feel at ease!

My son Peter started with Lisa as his first Viola teacher. He had studied piano for about 5 years and Lisa came with high recommendations as Peter went from piano to viola. Peter eventually progressed to an hour long session. Peter performed with the Metropolitan Youth Symphony for 2 years and his first year with the Phoenix Youth Symphony all with Lisa guiding his talented bow. Lisa has been a major influence in Peter's continued success with the viola as he has performed with the Arizona State Orchestra in 2016 and 2017. Lisa is an inspired teacher and a wonderful person.

Lisa Williams has been my daughter's 1st viola teacher for the past year and a half. What she has accomplished with her has been nothing short of amazing. My daughter, Lillie, has progressed through the 1st 4 Suzuki book levels, & is preparing with Lisa to audition for the Phoenix Youth Symphony. Lisa quickly developed a rapport with Lillie & gave her the foundation for playing, reading music & understanding how to prepare for auditions. Lisa blends traditional approaches of classical music instruction & music theory with contemporary methods & musicality. She instills confidence through her teaching & positive reinforcement & gives effective critiques without negativity. Lisa is a consummate professional who cares about her students & her passion for music is infectious. Lisa challenges Lillie & as a result, she can't wait to play new music & learn new scales. Lisa has also inspired Lillie to help her friends with tuning & technique at school. :). Great teacher & better person.

I've been playing the viola for about 10 years and I love it more everyday. I tried to all out anyone I teach to love their instrument and be able to produce a very unique sound with good technique and practical precision. All of that comes down to how you practice what you practice and your willpower to keep practicing. Lessons with me be focused but slightly comical at times. It'll be intense at times and tedious during other times but it all depends on the effort put in from the student. I'll teach you as much as I can to the best of my abilities as long as you keep learning and vice versa.

About Jachai
I am a freshman at Kennesaw State University majoring in music performance on viola. I've been playing for 10 years now on viola and about six and violin. Very serious and dedicated practitioner. I love the viola so so so much.

I went to Roswell High School and Elkins point where I actually seriously started playing. It was actually in my 6th grade year that I started to seriously play and advanced within my instrument. I started on viola and I have played ever since. I've gotten comfortable with the mechanics of it since it's so different from violin.

As a musician there's a lot of stuff that goes into trying to Excel in a short amount of time but my motto is quality over quantity so the more efficient you are within a small amount of practice time the faster you'll advance. It's pretty simple actually. I didn't have private lesson
s at all until I actually hit College. Through the years I've had like a few lessons here and there with different professional view lists but never consistent legitimate private lessons with a tutor. I'm glad to say that because I practice so much that I've been blessed to play as well as I do. Talent goes a long way but practice gets here across the finish line.

A lot of people often ask me how I play so well and I never had private lessons. My answer is always that I have the passion and I had the talent. Talent was 10% of My Success. The rest of it was practice dedication and motivation. When you have that willpower there is no doubt that you will get to where you want to be. It's all about perspective.
