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.

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.

The totor is not responsive. She doesn't collaborate with the student to accommodate her needs. There was no class on 12th March and I do not see a response to my query from the tutor yet. Very non-coperative attitude.

Charles has been great with my early skill development. He continues every week to stress the basic for my violin training. He remains supportive and patient. We have had lessons in person and online. I am beginner at 65 years old and I would highly recommend Charles Bossert as a violin, and other strings instruments instructor. Thank You Charles for your help.

Viola lessons are geared toward student goals: better orchestra seating, youth orchestra auditions, coaching for chamber ensemble performances, college auditions, or simply to master the instrument. I'm fun and engaging, and make the lessons informative without being overly taxing.

"Aleksandre is a wonderful teacher! I have been working on Mozart's Symphonie Concertante, and he helped me realize certain musical liberties while at the same time maintain my technique. Aleksandre's way of explaining things has made it very easy for me to progress as a violist. When he demonstrates specific ideas on his viola, it is extremely clear to understand, plus it gives me inspiration to be as good as him. His artistry, patience, and enthusiasm is why I chose him as my teacher."

"My 13 year old granddaughter just finished her 1st year of viola at school in June 2014 and she wanted to take summer lessons to stay sharp. There were a lot of teachers available within a 10-15 minute drive, but after trying other teachers, we chose Mark (a 30 minute drive ) because, as others have commented, he is extremely patient and teaches by correcting, not criticizing. He simply has a gift for teaching. I have never regretted the extra drive. Once you've had a lesson with him, you won't want to go to anyone else."

"We have tried a few instructors for strings and they were not the right fit for us. We finally struck GOLD with Charles! Very professional, not at all condescending with his feedback (this was our problem with a couple others), taught my son things he has not learned in school in terms of correct form/placement of viola, and bow technique. We are very excited for the next lesson!"
