I feel very lucky to have my son take flute lessons from Kendall! She is a wonderful teacher. Her lessons are dynamic, engaging and fun. Thirty minutes fly by like three minutes. Next time will schedule a longer session.

Whether you're 3 or 103, if you're playing viola (or starting to play!) I hope you're EXCITED about it!! Over the years, my students have said that their lessons are/have been their favorite times of each week. I believe learning to play viola should be full of joy, learning, thinking, and feeling. Bring that joy alive for yourself by partnering with me as your musical guide. I bring over 30 years of experience and pure joy to my work, and I'd love to share that with you!

Jill has been great! I’m an adult beginner who was nervous about jumping into learning the Violin. Jill is very helpful, super encouraging and knowledgeable. Also very flexible with my schedule. I recommend her to anyone starting out. I look forward to my next lesson!

Enjoyment and engagement precede technical study— always!

Why are you drawn to this instrument, piece of music, or performance situation? We will study all of the things you’d expect: scales, exercises, études, and repertoire. But I like to think I add more value than the notes on the page. And learning to play an instrument is all about reflecting your joy of playing it to the world! Precision is necessary but first is passion. This is why we always begin with enjoyment and engagement.

I consider the whole person I am teaching. I like to approach playing any musical instrument with the whole mind and body. You’ll learn how to most naturally hold and play your instrument with as much ease as if you were simply walking down the street. Only with ease can we play these instruments for life!

"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!"

"Elisa is a very responsible, skillful, and sweet teacher

Before Elisa moved to Ventura, CA, she was a master student and taught in IP piano school and Kwong Kow Chinese School in Boston, MA. My daughter, Sarina, was one of her students. My daughter loves her so much and made good progress when Elisa was teaching her. Elisa made Sarina relax and comfortable so that she was enjoying the learning process; she emphasized on skill and poses, she tried hard to help the students to get to the best they could. She is reliable as you can talk with her about the timing change and make up lessions. She came to our house to say goodbye and hug Sarina before she left. She is a great teacher that you can count on and you will enjoy her teaching."

"I absolutely loved my viola lessons with Will! He began by asking questions and asking me to play a few things to gauge what level I was at. I came into these lessons after not having played for 15 years. He was very encouraging and very positive. I asked him to help me with my form in order to gain a better foundation, and he did so well at focusing on that and giving me such helpful pointers. He plays the viola and it was good to hear some of his experience. I also loved learning more of the background and history of the type of music and the techniques we went over. I feel like that adds so much depth to the learning experience. He is very knowledgeable as well as personable. He also never wasted any time during our lessons. He was very good at pacing us so we could get through the different things I had practiced, and yet I didn't feel rushed at all. I would highly recommend Will to anyone (no matter your level)! I was very pleased with my experience and will definitely seek him out for future lessons."
