As a classical musician who is primarily a cellist, I have taken the time to learn viola for students who have an interest. I customize lessons to the students' needs, though primarily focus on fundamentals such as technique, note-reading, theory, ear training, and listening.

About Erica

As a classically trained cellist with more than 20 years experience and a nontraditional musical background in audio, experimental music, and jazz, I employ a variety of techniques in teaching my students in ways that are both traditional and nontraditional. Although cello is traditionally a classi

I strive to create an environment in which students are inspired to discover, create, learn, express themselves and have fun. I focus on strengthening students' foundational techniques, through scales, etudes and other materials and then applying those skills in pieces and songs that are designed to build a good basis of musical knowledge, helping students to become confident in their musical abilities.

My greatest joy is sharing music, and I love to help students discover their own creative voice through their instrument! I am a versatile classical violinist and violist, fiddle player, songwriter, improviser, and cross-genre musician with over 20 years' experience playing the violin and 8 years' experience teaching violinists of all ages and abilities.

I'm currently only enrolling students online, but I will be available to teach in-person lessons in the Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN, metro area and in Northfield, MN, after it is safe to do so.

About Green

Hi there! My name is Green. My greatest joy is sharing music with others, and I love to do so through teaching the violin and viola. I incorporate a variety of musical styles into my teaching practice to instill instrument fundamentals, technique, music theory, and artistry. My teaching philosophy

Green makes my son’s online violin lessons engaging while still being purposeful and focused with the repertoire. My son reports feeling motivated and encouraged and his confidence and skills grow with each lesson. Thank you, Green, for all your passion and hard work!
Elizabeth K.
My kids love working with Green! She is patient and clear, and she can tailor her style to their different ages and ability levels. Plus she makes them laugh :) I highly recommend Green as a teacher!
Lance
Green is a dedicated, caring professional who quickly connected with our daughter and developed an ongoing plan to facilitate her growth and development as a musician. Green is well-prepared for each lesson, and communicates expectations clearly with encouragement, challenge, and appropriate support to our child. Our daughter says that studying violin is fun again, and possibly more than ever! We have observed a great measure of improvement just in these last 3 months of lessons with Green, and are so thankful for her musical mentorship to our daughter. You will be blessed and very grateful to enroll with Green while she still has space for students in her teaching schedule. I predict that one day soon there will be a long waiting list and many flourishing young artists benefiting from their study with a world-class talent and first-rate person.

I teach viola to students of all ages and levels! As a violist of 15 years, my background is in classical music. My teaching is informed by Suzuki methodology, and I often start first-time violists with Suzuki teaching practices. However, I specialize in teaching a variety of genres, and I work individually with my students to determine how I can support them wherever they are in their musical journey!

About Sydney

I am a Chicago-based performer and music teacher of seven years. I completed my Bachelor of Music in Viola Performance from Roosevelt University in 2018, and have taught violin and viola in group and private lessons to children and adults of all ages! My teaching is informed by Suzuki pedagogy.

So very, very patient with little kids. She leaves us with notes so we know exactly what to practice each time. It really helps us stay on track in between lessons. I can easily recommend Sydney for anyone (at any age) that wants to learn violin.

There is a potential in every person to be truly great at any one thing. All it takes is hard work and honest determination, with determination being the most important. Because where determination comes, hard work follows naturally.
I hope to inspire my students to really love making music and being creative with their instruments. I can give my students all the information in the world and tips on how to improve at violin playing, but in the end it will not matter if the student has no desire to improve. And that is why I love to teach- inspiring students to love what they do!

Abigail is a amazing teacher! Even though we were learning through online she made it fun and educational. She explained and gave examples that helped me understand and look at things in a different ways. She is very easy to talk to, kind, and funny person. Like I said I was learning with her online and l would absolutely want to work with in person.
Miranda
Great teacher! Takes time to explain things and is always patient with me! Also she makes it fun and not a chore. I am a pure beginner but she teaches me the fundamentals well and I’m confident I can continue to build on this bedrock to become a proper violin player :)

She taught me how to play the theme of Castle in the Sky. Now it’s up to me to master it!

Lessons are tailored to fit each individual student's ability and goals. I believe in challenging students while maintaining a supportive and encouraging environment. Lessons will cover music theory, technique, and solo pieces. The goal is to develop in each student the specific skills needed to play a string instrument as well as to nurture an understanding and love for music.
Lessons take place at my apartment in Southeast Denver, near Hampden and I-25. Students are expected to prepare for and participate annual studio recitals. In addition to lessons, students are strongly encouraged to participate in a music ensemble program such as Suzuki group classes, school orchestra, or youth or community orchestras.

About Kostadin

I was raised in a musical family in my home country of Bulgaria, where I attended a highly competitive full-time performing arts school from age 6. I was trained in the Russian school of violin playing and have found this to be a very successful method for my younger students in the United States.

My daughter has shown so much improvement over the past two years with Koko. He is patient with her when she's distracted and challenges her when she needs it. According to her "he is a really good teacher."

I've been taking lessons since April and have noticed a huge improvement thanks to Koko. He's very positive and offers insightful corrections and alternatives where needed(but also pushes me when needed). Highly recommend!!

"Susanna is an amazing string teacher! With a master's degree from Carnegie Mellon in viola performance and 20 years of teaching in public schools, Susanna is an expert teacher and player. She is great with both children and adults, and she is in a great location. I highly recommend Susanna as both a viola and violin teacher."

"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."

"She's the best! My daughter started on violin with the school and then moved on to viola. Finding a viola teacher is no easy task! In fact, finding anything for the viola - music, strings, etc ... is difficult! But Kimberly does a great job and got her off to a wonderful start. We are so incredibly happy to have Kimberly teaching our daughter. Do not rely on your child's school to teach viola - go directly to Kimberly."

"Charles is very professional, kind and friendly. My 9 year old is trying to learn Bohemian Rhapsody on his viola for a talent show and Charles has been very helpful, guiding him through the music with positive reinforcement. We tried a couple other instructors but it wasn't the right fit. Super pleased we found Charles. Look forward to many more lessons to come."

"Megan is so pleasant and fun! She has strong focus on technique, and explains these practices in a way I can understand. Since I am a beginner, and adult learner, it's important that my music teacher is patient and cheers me along throughout the process - Megan definitely has that gift. I also appreciate that she writes down technique tips and exercises for me to practice at home (so I remember what she taught me in class.) I'm looking forward to continuing to learn from Megan, and play music beautifully on my Viola one day."
