Highly impressed with the way Mrs. Entela teaches! She truly helped my son advance with the violin but made sure he understood everything along the way. Highly recommend her!

My daughter took violin lessons with Mrs. Entela and she was a very productive teacher. My daughter advanced tremendously within a small amount of time and I was very impressed with how Mrs. Entela worked. Marvelous work!

I took viola lessons from Mrs. Entela and had already played prior to meeting her. She taught me so much within such a short period of time. Highly recommend lessons from her!

Online Viola Teacher

The viola and violin are extremely similar, so I will teach a violist as I would a violinist. My hope is to teach the student how to form good technique while avoiding bad habits. The student will learn how to listen to music intently and intelligent, how to read alto clef, and how to shape and perform the pieces learned.

Very sweet, enthusiastic, and encouraging, my 8 year old took to her right away.
Brooke B.
Panagiota did a wonderful job with my 11 year old daughter. She is a beginning violin student that wanted some extra help while school is out. We have signed up to take weekly lessons with her as my daughter was extremely happy with the lesson.
Zion
I started lessons with Panagiota as an adult with zero expectations. After completing a year of lessons with her, what I’ve been able to accomplish has far exceeded my expectations. Panagiota is always patient, kind, and encouraging. She always helps point out when I might be developing a bad habit or my timing is slightly off. I’m now learning second position and am on Suzuki Book 3. Panagiota is a phenomenal teacher and if you apply a strong work ethic, I say anything is possible under her tutelage :)

I started my violin lessons with Brian during my sophomore year of high school and continued with him through my senior year. He immediately began working with me on the music I had received from being in the Capital High School Orchestra. Throughout my years with Brian, we worked on perfecting many solos, creating beautiful ensembles, and enhancing my knowledge of music theory. Brian provided me a perfect transition as I moved from playing in high school orchestra to making music in my personal life. Whether you an absolute beginner or have been playing for years, I would absolutely recommend taking lessons from Brian! He is an amazing teacher, working with you every step of the way in pursuing your dreams in music, whatever they might be.
Mason
Brian is a great and patient teacher. He listens to me and pushes me when he knows that I can do better. He is super talented, super nice, and he has a good sense of humor. 10 out of 10 would recommend.

Super awesome teacher! So good with both younger kids and teenagers and the hard work he puts in to help others really shows in his students!

"Michael is the rare pairing of a professional performer and fantastic teacher of viola & violin technique. I have seen the benefits of his pedagogy first-hand in my middle school orchestra classroom in Plano ISD. I have been lucky enough to have him teach some of my students for over 3 years. He has helped many of my students overcome barriers in their practicing and performing. With your commitment to putting in quality practice time, lessons with Michael will certainly result in significant musical growth."

"My 12 year-old daugher has been practicing viola with Jill for 7 months now. From day 1, I have been impressed by Jill's teaching style that is rigorous, but also flexible and supportive. In just a few lessons, my daughter's music playing deepened.The most important to me was to see and hear my daughter starts to breath, feel and enjoy her music. I believe that now my daughter is not playing for me but more for herself. I am extremely thankful to Jill and recommend her highly as a violin and viola instructor. I believe her instruction will have a lifelong impact on my daughter. On top of things, my daughter and I enjoy our time during her lessons very much."

"My daughter has been taking lessons from Will for about a year. We are lucky enough to live near Athens, so lessons take place at our home. I have been so pleased with Will. He is a great teacher - enthusiastic, kind, patient, and knowledgeable. Even though he has many students, he always remembers exactly what they were working on. He takes interest in my daughter's life and will ask her how marching band is going, or other things about school. I especially like that Will is someone that she can look up to as an example of hard work and perseverance. He's not only a great teacher, but he's just a good person, and I am so glad we found him!"
