Private Viola Teacher

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.

Private Viola Teacher

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 cellist with 20 years experience on my instrument, I take a less traditional approach having performed at renowned venues such as the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Archive, Hungry Brain, and Elastic Arts. I am active in the improvisation, jazz, "New" music

Great experience

She did a wonderful job teaching Tara. Tara's viola technique really improved this year thanks to Dorothy's patience and hard work. Dorothy never missed a lesson and always came prepared for the next challenge. I must admit that I was hesitant to find a teacher using an on-line service but, Ihave been extremely pleased with our instructor and will miss Dorothy's guidance in our viola lessons.

Feedback for Dorothy

Dorothy has fabulous teacher. She is easy to learn from and doesnt get anoyed when you dont get things on the first try. This is great because as an adult I dont learn as quickly.Also, I am a college student (age 20) and she works with my school and work schedules. I really cant say how pleased I am with the quality of her teaching.

First 3 weeks...

Thank you for what you have done for Mechelle so far. She enjoys coming to lessons and feels very comfortable working with you. And it's nice to know that she's getting the attention and help that she needs to be successful in learning the viola.

Luther stays where I’m at and then helps me go the next step. That is useful for consistent gradual progress without the frustrations of moving either too slow or too fast (I am a beginning tenor saxophone player). Nice interpersonal style, patient and easy going, while methodical.
Geoff K.
I think Luther is great. He works with my 10-year old son on piano, singing and even trumpet and violin as needed. My son has to work hard to progress, and Luther customizes the lesson plan for him and seems to understand him well. I'm really excited about them working together.

"Kan is truly one of the most thorough, patient, and detail-oriented instructors I have ever had. She actually teaches her students the basics, which many tend to skip, but she stresses is important if you truly want to be a good musician.

She is extremely kind, devotes her full undivided attention to her students, and you can tell she is very passionate about music and teaching.

If you're looking for an instructor, Kan is one of the best! You wont be disappointed."
