In our first lesson, you will learn about the parts of your instrument, how to care for it, and how to hold it. You will even learn some notes and begin reading music! By the end of your first package of lessons, you will be able to play with lovely tone, using the bow as well as plucking, and will have a handful of simple songs under your belt.

Students describe me as patient, fun, and encouraging! As your teacher, you can expect me to work with you from where you are, and with subjects and curriculum that match what you are interested in learning. I teach traditional classical, using either Suzuki or Essential Elements, depending on your learning and self-motivational needs, and I also teach fiddle music, including Celtic, old-time, bluegrass, and alternative styles. *Please check my availability before signing up, as my time slots are quickly filling up!* I look forward to meeting you! Call Take Lessons today to sign up!

Rachel is a terrific violin teacher. My daughter is 13 and she starting taking violin lessons last year and now she has progressed so much from when she just begun. Rachel is really kind, patient, and funny. I highly recommend Rachel for violin lessons!!
Kristi M.
My two daughters, 13 and 16, have been taking lessons from Rachel for about a year now. They were beginning and intermediate levels. Both of them have enjoyed working with Rachel. She has kept lessons fun and engaging and we have seen a lot of progress. My daughters love celtic fiddle songs and Rachel has helped them play more on pitch and taught them some neat techniques. Rachel has also been very patient with our scheduling changes and is a great communicator.
Cindy
Rachel is a terrific and inspiring fiddle teacher. Lessons were focused on achieving my goals (which I did) but lots of fun too. Rachel is great at suggesting a number of approaches to improving your skills and also suggested some great new fiddle tunes! I highly recommend Rachel for fiddle lessons.

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.

Online Viola Teacher

Senior Music Education Major with 2+ years of teaching experience and a member of the Cincinnati Metropolitan Orchestra. A violinist and vocalist with 11+ years of experience, and 2+ years of viola and piano experience. I believe that music is an experience that is felt and understood differently among each person and because of this, all lessons are customized according to the interests, needs, and goals of each student. My students will develop a solid foundation of music theory, aural skills, and sight-reading that will prove to be extremely beneficial in their musical studies. My greatest desire is to help all of my students to achieve their greatest musical potential and to grow in their appreciation of the beauty of music.

About Rebeka

I am a Senior at Mount Saint Joseph University pursuing a degree in Music Education. My primary instruments are violin and voice, with my secondary instruments being viola and piano. I have been playing violin and singing for 11+ years and playing viola and piano for 2+ years. I am a classicall

Viola is the glue that bind the violin and cello in any strings ensemble. Whether you are a beginner, violin transplant, or switch hitter. I will work with you to become a proud member of this close-knit group. An excellent choice of instrument for someone arriving late to the music game, or someone who wants to become a more versatile violinist.

For beginners, I prefer using the "Essential Elements for Strings" book, which offers students a head start to what many school will use in their classrooms. For intermediate students, the "Suzuki" books offers repertoire that has become a rite of passage for any string player. Advanced students can expect pieces that are tailor selected for them to show off their unique strengths and address their weakness.

For two years, I took viola lessons with Chen. In my seven years of studying music, I can confidently say that Chen has been one of my favorite music teachers.

Chen is a very effective teacher. He is very patient and is constantly thinking of new ways to tackle solving a student’s struggles. If you put in the time, work, and practice, he will help you to advance in playing your instrument with greater proficiency.

Since Chen is very knowledgeable in his craft, he helped me to know what to look for when purchasing a new bow. He knows many practice strategies and techniques to get your scales, etudes, and repertoire to become performance ready.

When I first started taking lessons with Chen, I could hardly play the viola at all. After two years of learning under his instruction, he had guided me to learn and develop the skills needed to get me through three college orchestra concerts, becoming the principal viola in that orchestra, performing two college solo recitals, and joining a university community orchestra.

Thanks to Chen, he has taken me to levels of proficiency with the viola I would never imagine I would get to. If you are looking to learn how to play violin or viola, I would definitely recommend Chen as your teacher. Thank you, Chen.

"I absolutely loved my viola lessons with Will! He began by asking questions and asking me to play a few things to gauge what level I was at. I came into these lessons after not having played for 15 years. He was very encouraging and very positive. I asked him to help me with my form in order to gain a better foundation, and he did so well at focusing on that and giving me such helpful pointers. He plays the viola and it was good to hear some of his experience. I also loved learning more of the background and history of the type of music and the techniques we went over. I feel like that adds so much depth to the learning experience. He is very knowledgeable as well as personable. He also never wasted any time during our lessons. He was very good at pacing us so we could get through the different things I had practiced, and yet I didn't feel rushed at all. I would highly recommend Will to anyone (no matter your level)! I was very pleased with my experience and will definitely seek him out for future lessons."

"Couldn't have asked for more!

We found Jessica through the Suzuki Association Directory. I was looking for a teacher that taught through the Suzuki method and she ended up being a perfect fit for my VERY energetic son. Patient, flexible (lessons in our home), laidback and even willing to drop by on her free time to fix a few broken strings and stray bridges
We could definitely hear my sons progress after each lesson...very pleased and would definitely recommend!!! :-)"

"Michael is the rare pairing of a professional performer and fantastic teacher of viola & violin technique. I have seen the benefits of his pedagogy first-hand in my middle school orchestra classroom in Plano ISD. I have been lucky enough to have him teach some of my students for over 3 years. He has helped many of my students overcome barriers in their practicing and performing. With your commitment to putting in quality practice time, lessons with Michael will certainly result in significant musical growth."
