Viola is the undersung hero of the orchestra, and I love to help violists learn this beautiful instrument! Though much of the technique of the instrument is the same or very similar to the violin, violists enjoy a great repertoire of solo pieces and high demand in ensembles, which I can help you discover for yourself. (Please see my violin profile for more information on experience and lesson style)

I love music, and I love helping other people find and develop their love for music! I teach all styles of violin and piano to ages 4 and up, with a strong emphasis on finding what kind of music each student enjoys and building a life-long love of music with solid technical foundations. I hold a

My experience with Kathy has been great. It's been roughly five months and I learned a lot and I'm also much more confident to sing. Learning the right techniques is crucial. Kathy is extremely patient and she adapts the classes to the student goals and aspirations. English is not my first language and she was also always very respectful and patient in explaining everything twice or maybe three times until I get it.
Kathleen
Kathryn has a terrific demeanor, and provides clear, thoughtful suggestions for technique!

"I'm a Nurse Practitioner and I happened to find about Rosita through a friend. I told her about why I wanted to learn Spanish and apparently she was developing a course for that. What struck me the most is that she listens to her student's needs. She already had an understanding how different nurses work and how crazy it could be. She really narrowed down for those that do not want to be fluent but at be able to communicate with our patients and I appreciated that. I wasn't looking to take High School Spanish again and she didn't. Although we did have to go over some grammar but she explained how it can be used in my line of work. For those that are looking to be conversational in Spanish in her course Beginning Spanish for Medical Professionals I really recommend it my colleagues out there!"

"Valentina, is a wonderful teacher, She gets me used to hearing the language, since much of the fluidity of a new language revolves around the ear and hearing, and pronouncing the new words. She has given me a language course with background, and a grounding in grammar; and helps me with the words and idioms the I will use when I am in Italy. I am extremely happy with my lessons."

"Micah is the most inspiring teacher. She helped me from eighth grade until senior year; from memorizing Spanish poetry to analyzing essays, we did everything and I understood everything. I felt super prepared for class every week and if I ever had an issue I would just email Micah. Without Micah I do not know if I would have continue to AP Spanish V in high school or if my love for the Spanish language would be the same. I adore Micah and all that she has taught me and my pleasant Spanish memories are all rooted with Micah. If you are looking for not just an amazing teacher but an idol, Micah is the one."
