Private Viola Teacher

I am a lifelong musician who loves teaching. I have been teaching for a decade, and have played in many orchestras and chamber groups. I practice radical empathy in all things, but especially with my students. I believe kindness helps us grow; fostering a positive environment and relationship with my students is important to me, because it is important for their development as musicians. I believe in a holistic approach to teaching an instrument, nurturing and working on body, mind, and soul—a healthy and happy musician is a good musician! I encourage students to fall in love with what they do, and to advance at their own pace. I believe there is no such thing as bad musicians, just learners who are cultivating their art.

I love the viola; I'm primarily a violist and love nothing more. I would love to share my passion with you or your child!

I have a Master's degree in Viola Performance, and viola is my primary instrument. I have received extensive instruction on the minutiae of the viola, and can help you with any need that you many have!

I tailor my approach to each student. Some students require more technical work, some require interpretive. Both are fascinating and can be taught with structure and clarity.

The viola has such a wonderful sound, and sings its own voice. Play orchestra music, in a trio or quartet, or just for your own pleasure. Melodies that were written for other instruments can sound really great on a viola. Bluegrass and Celtic music also is fun on a viola.

About Donna

She knows how to identify what style of learning is appropriate. She knows how to listen, and how to determine what the goals are. She doesn't impose an agenda, but is committed to helping the learner acquire technical skills while making lessons fun and productive. Top marks!

Thomas is honestly an amazing musician and teacher. He was really patient with me. Despite having to deal with major timezone differences (as I live in Myanmar), he took the time to figure it out. Also, he helped me figure out the stuff it took me months to figure out. He also really knows what he's doing. I learned so much in that hour of practice. 10/10 would recommend him.

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!"
