Private Viola Teacher

I am a professional violinist and violin instructor in the Washington, DC Metro Area. Currently teaching in Arlington, VA and Washington DC, I am now accepting new students to my home studio.
I have a great love for music and hope to be able to pass it on to anyone eager to learn. I teach beginner to advanced violin and viola students of any age, child to adult (adults, it’s never too late to learn if you have always wanted to!). Although there is no specified age limit, children younger than the age of 6 are admitted only at my discretion.
For beginners, I like using a combination of traditional and Suzuki methods. The materials used are Essential Elements and Suzuki Books. All my teaching is adapted to each student individually, catering to their specific level and interest.

Let's start playing together!

Milena taught me everything with a firm but gentle hand, and really pushed me to be the best I could be. Her lessons were really personalized to what I was capable of, and although I hit some rough spots it was usually because of my own practice habits. All in all, I’m very glad I had her as my teacher.
Bryce
Milena really knows her stuff. She’s very consistent and really focused on teaching. If you follow her instructions you will improve. Thank you for the lessons Milena! I promise I will get better at practicing!
Rashmi
My daughter has blossomed under Milena and has developed a real love for playing the violin. Milena has very high standards for her students and is supportive and encouraging. My daughter looks forward to her lessons each week.

Ben E.
This was a really unfortunate and wasted experience. Raycurt was wildly unprepared to teach. He brought a broken metronome and almost no sheet music/lesson plan. I had spoken both to the sales rep and Raycurt himself prior to the lesson and he was still fully unprepared.

I also explained my level of experience and was assured Raycurt was qualified to teach at the level I needed, but he came off as less knowledgable than me, which was particularly disappointing.

Worst of all, after multiple hours of speaking on the phone, I couldn't get my money back for this lesson.

I'd strongly recommend not using takelessons at all, they've put a horrible taste in my mouth for their entire service.

Robert was nervous for his first lesson. Annie’s teaching style set him at ease very quickly. She was clear and concise with her instructions. Very hands on as needed: adjustment of violin, bow , hand and arm placement,etc. I, as Robert’s parent, was very impressed with Annie.

I have always loved the deeper sound and colors that the viola produces. I must admit that when picking my professional violin, I really wanted and looked for an instrument that had many of the tonal properties of the viola! I've taught viola since 1965 and many of my students have received degrees in viola as well as scholarships to music camps and universities. I've performed on the viola many times in various ensembles and always enjoyed the deeper and special qualities of sounds that only a viola can produce. Our first lesson together will include helping each student be more comfortable while playing, after that, within the first year of study, a full understanding of how to make a beautiful, rich tone with vibrato and ability to move freely through the first 3 positions with good intonation and ease of movement. Most violists that I have worked with have a special love for their viola and have a passion for its performance. In our lessons together, you will learn how to ...

Mr. Ralph Boehm is a great teacher. He is firm in
his teaching, yet very kind and generous. He has spectacular humanity. As far as technique, he finds out where his student is weak , and tries hard to turn the weakness into a strength and will work extra time to correct the flaws of his student. He is a rare individual
and instructor. I consider myself very lucky to have him
as my violin teacher.
Jennifer
Ralph is a wonderful cello instructor. Kind, caring, thoughtful and very knowledgeable. His directions really helped my daughter’s technique and sound quality. He teaches violin, viola and bass as well. Highly recommend!
Lori
My daughter has been taking lessons with Mr. Ralph Boehm for seven months. She loves her weekly lessons due to Mr. Boehm’s professionalism, passion for teaching and passion for music. He ensures his students have the basics down to the muscles in their hands before they progress. I highly recommend him for students who are eager to excel at their instrument.

"My daughter started taking online voila lessons with Nikita, and because this was our first experience with online lessons, we weren’t sure about what to expect. Turns out, my daughter started improving on all of the skills she hadn’t mastered. This growth started very quickly after lessons, thanks to Nikita! Through years of playing, she has never learned to acquire these skills, and after two or three lessons she had fully conprehended them. Nikita helped her so much!"

We found Jessica through the Suzuki Association Directory. I was looking for a teacher that taught through the Suzuki method and she ended up being a perfect fit for my VERY energetic son. Patient, flexible (lessons in our home), laidback and even willing to drop by on her free time to fix a few broken strings and stray bridges
We could definitely hear my sons progress after each lesson...very pleased and would definitely recommend!!! :-)"

"I have taken three lessons with Megan so far. Megan is highly professional but friendly. She has exceptionally good ears, even when the lessons are conducted online. I just picked up viola a couple of years ago. As an adult viola learner, I appreciate Megan's style. She knows that we (adult learners) will improve with practice. She combines the basics (scales), techniques, and tone in each lesson. It seems that she sees my strengths and areas of improvements and adjusts her teaching style to match my skills. I highly recommend Megan to viola adult and child learners."
