Private Viola Teacher

I offer viola lessons at my home in Eldersburg, and welcome prospective student inquiries from all ages and levels of experience. As a teacher, I recognize that each of my students follows their own path toward their musical development and personal fulfillment, and I am highly invested in guiding them every step of the way with care and expertise. Above all, my goal is to inspire within my students a personal love for music that they can carry with them well beyond our lessons, and ultimately into a more fulfilling life. To that end, I develop an individualized curriculum for each of my students catered to their own abilities and personalities, ensuring the most effective learning possible.

I hope to hear from you soon, and to help you along your viola journey!

Private Viola Teacher

I feel what makes taking lessons with me unique is my experience teaching private violin and viola lessons in Texas public schools (grades 6-12) and my career as a professional musician having performed in many orchestral, opera, and chamber music settings. Through the lens of that performed experience, I know how crucial an education that includes classical music can be in a student’s overall academic development and maturation. Though not everyone pursues music as a career, no matter the student’s age, I wish to ultimately be a positive support system in fostering their development in their mirrored desirability to make classical music and incorporate it's richness and beauty into their life.

Michael is an amazing teacher. He has deep understanding of fundamentals and subtleties involved in playing violin. It helped me understand and improve my shortcomings all the way from developing correct muscle memory, bowing techniques and producing the right sound. He has been a very patient teacher and inspires you to keep at it. Michael is very detail oriented - this helps to discover subtle flaws in your playing, which are easy to miss. It has been a great learning experience, and am looking forward to more classes.

Profile_112004_pi_chen01
"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."

"I studied with Michael Drobycki during my last two years of high school. In that time he helped me tremendously with my technique and developing my sense of musicality. I was able to make huge amounts of improvement within that time, which allowed me to place into my school’s highest orchestra as well as All-Region placement. Additionally, he helped me find the viola that I concertized on for more than nine years. He continues to be one of my mentors to this day."

He's one of the finest, and most well respected musicians in the orchestra. Super knowledgeable, very creative and fun. Call this guy up, talk to him for 2 minutes, you will see what I mean."
