Private Viola Teacher

As a graduate of the Juilliard School and a former violist of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, I continue to gain musical knowledge every day. I strive to pass this along to my students, from basic technique to advanced musical concepts. I have experience teaching privately, providing practice help sessions, and in group classes and orchestra sections. I grew up learning through the Suzuki method, so I encourage learning by ear and emphasize the importance of efficient and organized practice. In a lesson with me, I would focus on learning classical viola technique in order to produce the best juicy and rich viola sound. I encourage the student to choose their repertoire based on their musical preferences, however I always encourage exploration of the classical genre! I teach with the goal of showing my students how to best improve on their own in their individual practice. A good ear, consistent technique, and beautiful, deep, unique violist musicality will all be my focus in my ...

Julia has been a phenomenal teacher. She is knowledgeable, patient, and very accommodating. I have been working with her since a very beginner level, and I have seen incredible progress. She has helped me prepare for auditions and to play in an orchestral environment as well. Could not recommend her more!

I've been teaching violin and viola for almost 20 years and many of my students have won prestigious placements in the local orchestras. If you are a dedicated and curious student, you'll be able to improve your understanding of our craft and as time goes on you'll be able to take some interesting steps on this path. Since my background training happens to be in the best traditions of Russian violin school, my big emphasis is on the techniques and musicality. I use all kinds of books and methods, from Suzuki to Schradieck. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Mariam is energetic, clear and kind. She is very educated and experienced. I come from a Suzuki background and had not played for a few years. Mariam was able to work with me easily.
Teresa S.
Wonderful exciting teacher

I have had several lessons now and have not only learned a lot, but enjoyed my lesson time. Mariam is very fun and pushes me to try new things while keeping me reviewing the old.
I get a high quality teacher in my home every week that wants me to improve as much as I want to improve my violin skills. After just two lessons people I have played for have commented on just how much I have improved lately.

Intermediate - Expert Viola!

I shall guide you through your passage-work, intonation, vibrato, sliding, presence and solidity. I can also encourage musical intuition and imagination for creative students and teach them how to be independent thinkers. Therefore, I can tailor the student’s personal curriculum to achieve their greatest musicianship.

I teach Suzuki and Traditional methods with utmost observance and give great clarity on the student's progress.

I have performed as a classical soloist, in chamber groups, and with a full orchestra. Additionally, I have experience in modern popular music. I help my students understand their body, and the importance of both mental preparation, and the 
knowledge of how to become completely comfortable during their practice time and their performance time.

I love being able to use my extensive world-wide experiences to galvanize the interests of my students. I have been fortunate to have lived in so many places, to have studied with the ...

Private Viola Teacher

I have been teaching viola for seven years. Though I am classically trained, my interest in music goes far beyond classical music. I am constantly listening to various genres of music and consider myself a forever learner, loving everything in music from Prokofiev to the Flaming Lips. It is my job to help guide my students through their musical journeys, whether that is helping them get into their regional orchestra or teaching them that one song they've always wanted to learn. I teach out of the Essential Elements and Suzuki Method books. Though my lessons are fun and relaxed I will always give my students that extra push when needed. My goal is to help each student reach their personal success and to instill a love for playing music.

Tools for lessons:

Music Stand
Rosin
Shoulder rest or sponge
Previous method books (if you are not a first time learner)
Metronome
Pencil

My daughter (12) LOVES Miss Phoebe. We were so excited for our daughter to have private lessons even during COVID craziness. Phoebe is very patient and works well with kids. She is very communicative and has even telephoned when one of our lessons couldn't work out due to technical difficulties. My daughter's music teacher has been impressed with her growth, even though there is not in person orchestra at her school.

Jonathan is very patient and professional.
Michael
My high school daughter has received trumpet lessons from Jonathan for over a year. He is an excellent instructor, very knowledgeable and patient. As a school teacher, he knows how to work with kids in a way that gives him an advantage over a non-teacher performing artist. We've done lessons both in person and online. I'd highly recommend Jonathan to any parent looking to have their middle school/high school student take private lessons.

Jonathan is very patient with my kid and made the first lesson fun.

My 9 year old is trying to learn Bohemian Rhapsody on his viola for a talent show and Charles has been very helpful, guiding him through the music with positive reinforcement.

"Rachael is an amazing teacher. She started teaching my son in fourth grade. Her patience, perseverance, and knowledge took my son to another level; exceeding his peers. Under Rachael's instruction and guidance he was able to come so far; being accepted into a camp which he had to audition for, becoming principal violist in his school program and this year, became a rotating principal in our local prelude youth orchestra. None of this could have been achieved without Rachael's instruction. She was flexible when needed, available for advice during off hours and inspired my son to always aspire to do his best. If you are looking for an instructor that is patient, can look outside of the box and is in engaged in your student's success, Rachael is the teacher for you!"
