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.

Brittany is very well prepared for our lessons. She's very encouraging and although I've only had two lessons, I've learned a lot and she gives me plenty of exercises to do on my own to improve as well.

I'm an intermediate player who needed refinement and refresher of my core techniques. I went to Elizabeth because she has a background in both fiddle & classical. After watching me play, she affirmed that which I was doing correctly and then helped me to improve where I was lacking. I would recommend Elizabeth.

Online Viola Teacher

I have nearly 10 years teaching experience of all levels, ranging from beginning 5 year olds, beginning adults, high school students preparing for college music program auditions, students with autism or other special needs, and everything in between! I work for Houston Youth Symphony for their outreach programs providing lessons and group lessons in the public schools. I also work as a sectional and chamber music coach. I have completed the first two books of Suzuki Violin Book Teacher Training at the Greater Austin Suzuki Institute.

I currently have a very flexible schedule, as all of my upcoming performances and group teaching in the schools have been cancelled/ postponed due to the corona virus! I am therefore trying to increase my online teaching. I am happy to work with each individual to meet his or her musical goals, whatever those may be!

About Rachel

I am a professional violinist and violin and viola teacher. I am currently Assistant Concertmaster of Houston Ballet Orchestra, a position I have held since 2014. I also frequently perform with Houston Grand Opera and work as a substitute violinist for Houston Symphony and other groups in Houston.

I wish I could say many things but one thing I would love to share is that Ms. Rachel is the beat teacher anyone could ask for she really shows she cares, tells you your mistake, and Ms. Rachel helps even when it’s already good she tries to make it great not just good!!
Charlotte
I have been taking lessons from Rachel for almost two years. She usually teaches me in her home but we now do online lessons. Rachel helps me with my middle school orchestra pieces and we also follow the Suzuki series and music theory. She is patient and understands how to help me become a better violin player.

She likes to focus on the positive and is never negative. She’s always supportive and always takes time away to help me no matter what.

Online Viola Teacher

Hilary's primary instrument is the Viola. She chose it for its beautiful mellow sound and has found it to be rewarding in chamber music, and orchestras. Viola students have to learn a different set of skills - different posture and bow use in particular.

About Hilary

My passion is teaching violin so that my students enjoy freedom while playing. I use the fun of games to teach fundamental musical concepts. We have a lot of great silly time in lessons, but students often realize later how many things they picked up through these well-structured lessons. My st

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!

"Kendra is an amazing viola teacher. Since this was my first online lesson ever, I was skeptical at first. However, Kendra's kindness and positive attitude assured me that I had made the right decision. She covers many aspects of both the technical parts of handling the viola, as well as perfecting intonation and handling a wide variety of styles of music. She also is attentive to specific needs, and accomodates for different paths depending on individual goals. Thanks for all you do for me Kendra!"

"Helen McDermott is an absolute gift of a viola teacher and wonderful mentor. I highly recommend her!

My daughter studied viola with Helen for 8 consecutive years in Helen's private Suzuki viola studio. My daughter started with Helen when she was 6 years old and continued through her 8th grade year, which was winter/spring 2020.

Helen provides high quality and outstanding music instruction including, but not limited to: foundational to advanced music theory, technique (bow hold, etc...), and music history. She also supplements her private lessons with small-group lessons as well as regular opportunities for recitals.

Helen makes learning rich and fun! She's fabulous with creating music games for students during the lessons and to keep at-home practice time stimulating and meaningful. Helen is outstanding with giving her students structure as well as ways to learn how to stay organized.

As a Suzuki parent, I sat in on Helen's lessons for my daughter (per Suzuki philosophy) all through my daughter's elementary school years. I learned so much, myself, and was enriched by seeing my daughter blossom and grow musically. Helen has given the gift of music to my daughter not only with private lessons, but also through recommending excellent opportunities to participate in Suzuki enrichment like summer music camps and chamber music groups. Helen supported and coached my daughter to be prepared for several auditions over the years.

Because of Helen's outstanding viola instruction and mentorship, my daughter has earned and received numerous invaluable musical opportunities as well as truly meaningful compliments from other music teachers in the community.

Our family is incredibly fortunate to have Helen McDermott in our lives! She's a consummate professional musician and she is utterly passionate about sharing her talents and gifts of music."
