Private Viola Teacher

As a Masters of Music student at the Juilliard School, I continue to gain musical knowledge every day. I strive to pass this along to my students, from basic technique to advanced musical concepts. I have experience teaching privately, providing practice help sessions, and in group classes and orchestra sections through the Tufts Community Music Program. I grew up learning through the Suzuki method, so I encourage learning by ear and emphasize the importance of efficient and organized practice. In a lesson with me, I would focus on learning classical viola technique in order to produce the best juicy and rich viola sound. I encourage the student to choose their repertoire based on their musical preferences, however I always encourage exploration of the classical genre! I teach with the goal of showing my students how to best improve on their own in their individual practice. A good ear, consistent technique, and beautiful, deep, unique violist musicality will all be my focus in my ...

As a former professional musician with an undergrad in Music, my standards are pretty high when I'm selecting musicians to teach my kids. My son has been taking viola lessons with Regina for 2.5 years. She is professional but also down-to-earth and great to work with. My son, now an 8th grader, played a level 1 solo at the District and State ISSMA contests and earned a Gold at both levels--the only kid in his school to do so. We credit Regina for appropriately pushing him to be his best. You can be assured that when you choose Regina, you're choosing one of the very best teachers around.

Regina has been great with our 2 daughters. We had to recently change teachers and she has made the adjustment very smooth. The girls responded quickly and are motivated to continue their practices and lessons. Regina is very patient and encouraging. Thanks Regina!

Regina has been very patient teaching my 6 year old daughter. She is sure to take the time to answer all of her questions.

Ms. Susanna is very experienced and patient. My son enjoys the Cello lessons with her very much. I am very glad during this unsual time my son still could have such a high quality lessons online.

I've been taking violin lessons with Susanna for over 3 months. I'm 36, and had never picked up a violin before, although I did know how to read music. She has been great to work with. She adapted the classes to my strengths and weaknesses, and is very easy going. Exactly what I was looking for!

I had decided to pick up the violin during the pandemic, so remote was the only option. I was a little worried that remote lessons might make it hard for my teacher to coach me on form, particularly. That hasn't been an issue at all. Susanna regularly gives me notes on bowing, fingering, and tune. It works quite well, and she's been flexible about which video conferencing system we use.

Can't recommend Susanna enough! She's amazing.

Lessons are fun. My philosophy is that students should have music in their lives and benefit from the lessons they take now for years to come. Learning to play a musical instrument will help students with math skills, study habits, and develop a skill that will last for a lifetime.

After 3 months students will understand the fundamentals of their string instrument, know how to care for their instrument, warm up properly, be able to read and play introductory passages. After 6 months the student will have learned basic music theory, how to read music, and have advanced through playing multiple songs.

About Betsy

Music is the biggest passion in my life. I love being able to share that gift with my students, and look forward to their progress as much as my own. I continue to grow and develop as a musician, and love connecting with people through music. My students all learn to love and appreciate music, t

"Kendra had my 13 year old for about a year and a half as a complete beginner, and we'd still be with her for sure were it not for an easier alternative at a new school this Fall. Kendra has an amazing understanding of the younger student and what incentivizes them to learn and grow fast. My child practiced once a day for at least 30 minutes and in the above time is already making a lot of beautiful music. If you/yours is motivated, Special K is the way! Thnx, Kendra"

"We LOVE Susanna!
My son decided to play the viola, out of the blue (not for school, just for his own sake), so we went to TakeLessons to find him a teacher.
Susanna is so patient, and supportive. He has steadily increased his knowledge and abilities with her guidance.
My son always finishes his lesson and says, that was a really good lesson! Music to my mama ears!
We highly recommend Susanna!"
