Private Viola Teacher

My main focus for me would be for you to enjoy making music. That means
1. Working in a smart way so you would reach the best from your potential in a comfortable way.
2. Understanding that each person is unique and in that matters, the way of learning, of relating with the teacher and approaching to the violin playing.
3. Having fun while practicing and during the lesson.

I had a great experience because Catherine is an amazing instructor.
She taught lessons with a high degree of professionalism and care. As a novice, I was able to learn a lot because Catherine was patient and attentive to my learning style.

My two oldest children (one more advanced in piano than the other) began taking lessons with Catherine just this year. They have both shown significant improvement and love her as an instructor. They also look forward to practicing in between lessons. We could not be happier.

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!

My daughter just had her first lesson with Nikita! She feels like she learned more from him in her first lesson than she has learned in the last couple years. She can’t wait for her next lesson!
Scott
Truly a privilege getting instruction from Nikita! His patience and knowledge are endless; he is a natural teacher; so blessed for my son who has difficulty focusing to receive lessons from Nikita!
Sophie
This is my second review.

My son has been taken from Nikita for 7 months now. What a difference the months has made! My son is enjoying the instrument more and more, he's more confident in making good sounds, and the best of all, from Nikita he's learning how to be mindful when playing.

Nikita simply is the best.

Whenever I'm down, she just makes me feel so much better and she is so patient with me and my learning. I know it's difficult teaching a beginner, so it really means a lot when she takes the time to demonstrate and be patient with me when I need it the most."
