I love working with people of any age and any level-- when a student is excited about music, it makes me unbelievably happy. I've researched many different teaching materials and methods and after many years of teaching, I've figured out some of the best ways to help students have fun while learning.

Private Viola Teacher

I love teaching violin and viola, and have been doing it for over 10 years. I believe private lessons are an essential component to successful musical development and growth. It is my hope that my students develop the tools they need to become independent musicians. I strive to create an atmosphere that fosters not only growth in technique, but in character, personal discipline, and a long-term appreciation for music.

I am an active performer, and play violin and viola with the Atlanta Ballet and Atlanta Pops Orchestras, among others. I hold a dual-Masters degree (MM/MA) in Violin Performance and String Pedagogy from Ohio State, a Graduate Performance Diploma from the Longy School of Music, and a Bachelors in Music Education from the University of Georgia.

Shadwa is awesome! She’s very patient and understanding of student needs. She’s also very encouraging and helpful, whether you’ve had violin experience or not, and makes learning to play so much fun!
Christine
I have learned a lot from my lessons with Shadwa. She has a knack for explaining technique, for making the connections between the physical movement and the sound produced. (Yes, it really does help to stand up straight!) She takes a personal interest in her students, which makes for a great lesson atmosphere. We established longer term goals that we could work towards; I appreciated her patience and creativity. Even scales became more than just boring drills! I definitely recommend her as a viola teacher for adults!

All students will be coached on proper technique, posture, scales, arpeggios, and etudes depending on skill level as these are all the important fundamentals of playing. Not every lesson will include all of these points in great detail, but some lessons could focus only on these details if need be. The student's personal repertoire is the main study of every lesson with which I can offer coaching in bowings, technique, and interpretation.

About Kristin

I am a classically trained violist and string instrument enthusiast, born and raised in the Chicagoland area. I attended and graduated from Western Michigan University with a BM in music performance and have since worked as a music teacher in San Diego. I am the strings director at Double Peak Scho

In teaching lessons, it is my great pleasure to share with students of all ages and skill levels the knowledge that I've gained over 27 years of playing. I firmly believe that anyone can learn anything at any time, given the proper tools!

In our first lesson, we will determine your musical goals and create a realistic path to achieving them. It's my job to help you along this path while keeping things fun.

To maintain focus and week-to-week continuity, I always provide lesson notes to take home. I can also provide recordings of lessons and transcriptions of pieces, if desired.

I hold a BA from Oberlin College of Arts and Sciences, won a scholarship to the Baroque Performance Institute in 2005 and attended the BPI again in 2006. Apart from teaching, as a profe

I am very impressed with Elias! He listened well, offered helpful suggestions, laughed and was very congenial to work with. We discussed how to hold a bow and, since I have some arthritis in my hands, he was very open to other possible options that might work better for me. Taking lessons from him will be a bright spot in my week. I would recommend him in a heart beat!
Gene
A fun and informative lesson. Looking forward to the next one.
Jacqui
Elias is great! My daughter is 7 and this was her first exposure to violin lessons. She loves Elias, says how patient and nice he is, and can’t wait for her next lesson each week. I highly recommend him!

Hello!

I have over 10 years of musical experience playing the violin, and other instruments. I also have over 3 years of experience working with children ages 4-12. I have the ability to work with all ages.

My interest is in the student. I am interested in tailoring lessons to the goals and desires of each student. I specialize in students starting out and getting their feet wet in the music world. I believe in setting goals and achieving them in a way that works best for my students.

About Chelsea

Welcome everyone! I have a few beliefs: I believe that everyone should know how to play an instrument. Whether it is violin, ukulele, piano, their voice, whatever! Music is a part of what makes us human, and is important for personal development. I believe that no one is "too old" to sta

"Aleksandre is an amazing, very professional music teacher. He's friendly and gets down to business quickly. He assessed my technique and current playing level, helped correct my issues, and explained how I could get a better sound. The foundation and tools he has given me have helped me practice more effectively. I can't believe how quickly I've progressed. I've taken private lessons in the past, but felt stuck. I wish I started with this 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."

"For two years, I took viola lessons with Chen. In my seven years of studying music, I can confidently say that Chen has been one of my favorite music teachers.

Chen is a very effective teacher. He is very patient and is constantly thinking of new ways to tackle solving a student’s struggles. If you put in the time, work, and practice, he will help you to advance in playing your instrument with greater proficiency.

Since Chen is very knowledgeable in his craft, he helped me to know what to look for when purchasing a new bow. He knows many practice strategies and techniques to get your scales, etudes, and repertoire to become performance ready.

When I first started taking lessons with Chen, I could hardly play the viola at all. After two years of learning under his instruction, he had guided me to learn and develop the skills needed to get me through three college orchestra concerts, becoming the principal viola in that orchestra, performing two college solo recitals, and joining a university community orchestra.

Thanks to Chen, he has taken me to levels of proficiency with the viola I would never imagine I would get to. If you are looking to learn how to play violin or viola, I would definitely recommend Chen as your teacher. Thank you, Chen."

She not only explains technical placement but she also explains the reasons why they are important. She is great with my 9 year old and really checks for understanding along the way."
