About Jacqueline

Hi, it's nice to meet you! My name is Jacqueline and I have been playing the viola and violin since I was nine years old. A string quartet came to our school one day, I heard the sound said, "That is what I want to do" and haven't stopped since! I went to music school as a scholarship student. F

Hello! I've been performing for 21 years and teaching for 15 years. Teaching has always been a passion for me! Whether you're an adult trying the violin or viola for the first time, or a dedicated student aiming to major in music, I can adapt my approach to suit your needs. I will help you build confidence in your playing through presenting attainable goals each week, while also providing appropriate challenges. I aim to help you feel comfortable and natural as you play by prioritizing proper posture and technique.

I have a Master's degree from the Peabody Conservatory in Violin Performance with an emphasis in pedagogy. I have performed in the U.S.A. and Europe, with well-known artists such as Andrea Bocelli, Yo-Yo Ma, Itzahk Perlman, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. My teacher training includes the Suzuki method (registered for books 1-5) and the Mark O'Connor method (certified for books 1-2).

My hope is that the violin or viola becomes a constant source of inspiration and ...

Mrs. Hollis is a very kind and patient instructor. She is great at teaching technique and important skills that have to be learned in order to play the violin at your best. My son Ben absolutely loves taking lessons with her and he has learned so much. She is so professional, talented and has so much experience! She is a perfect instructor for anyone who would like to learn to Play the violin!
Olivia
Mrs. Hammonds is such a wonderful teacher! I came to her when I just started high school and was overwhelmed with joy when I found such a great teacher. Focusing on memorization, technique, and working on a solid foundation even after playing for 10 years prior, really reflected in my playing. I think she was the teacher who really showed me why I wanted to play violin and set my foundation up to improve more and more even today!
Kim
As an adult student that let my violin sit idle for too many years, Hollis was able to help me regain some basics skills and build upon them to re-learn different playing styles. Her approach was refreshing and focused on helping me re-learn some classical pieces that were familiar to my background. In addition, she introduced some jazz and fiddle pieces that I was interested in branching out with and worked with me to fine tune bowing techniques for each style.
I would highly recommend Hollis as an instructor for anyone starting out or looking to improve upon existing skills!

Watching my students overcome challenges and develop their own musicality is what makes this the best job in the world. I truly believe that anyone can learn music just like anyone can learn a language. I most enjoy meeting new people and discovering what they're passionate about as well as how they learn best. I pride myself on my problem solving skills, positive attitude, patience, resourcefulness, and creativity.

I have a peaceful home studio in Laurel, MD, but can also travel to students for in home lessons or give lessons online via webcam. I prefer to teach in my studio, however, because I have a wide variety of resources available to enhance your learning experience. (For example, I can't haul my 88 key Yamaha piano to and from your house every week ;)

I think I differ from other teachers in two distinct ways.
First, I don't give up. I will pick your brain and try to communicate musical concepts to you in any way, shape or form until you leave the lesson feeling like ...

Carly makes lessons interesting and fun for my 10 year old son. My son is high energy, and yet he is able to concentrate, focus and enjoy!

We plan to continue lessons on line with Carly during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Aaron
Carly is an amazing teacher. I've been her student for about a year and a half now and I have learned so much from her. She's the kind of teacher who helps you understand the lesson through various ways to truly make you get it.

I have learned quite a number of songs that I have always wanted to learn to play but thought I couldn't because the difference in skill was too great. I am a huge fan of Lindsey Stirling and because of Carly, I have learned how to play Take Flight, First Light, Brave Enough, River Flows in You, Hallelujah, Beyond the Veil. Take Flight was the song that made me want to learn the violin and I am ecstatic to say that I can play it.

If you decide you want to learn the violin or another instrument that she plays, you can't go wrong with Carly!

All students will be coached on proper technique, posture, scales, arpeggios, and etudes depending on skill level as these are all the important fundamentals of playing. Not every lesson will include all of these points in great detail, but some lessons could focus only on these details if need be. The student's personal repertoire is the main study of every lesson with which I can offer coaching in bowings, technique, and interpretation.

I focus on note reading and music theory, in addition to technical studies. I encourage chamber music and will often pair up students to play duets and trios.

About Mari

Welcome to my music studio! This will be a fun, incredible way to start or continue your music instruction. I have been a private violin and piano instructor since 1991. I took a break in 2005 while my kids were little. Now that they have grown up a bit, I am so excited to come back to this!

Mari was an awesome instructor, and very kind.
Anne
I absolutely loved learning from Mari for my piano lessons! As an adult learner, I felt like my brain doesn't work as fast as it used to, so learning a new instrument was difficult, but Mari completely caters each lesson to my learning speed and maximized my abilities. She takes into accounts the areas and types of music I wanted to learn and helped me to achieve being able to play that type of music. I also loved and appreciated that she works around my busy work schedule and accommodating lessons when plans change throughout the week. I would highly recommend Mari as a music teacher to anyone interested in learning a new instrument at all ages!

Great violin teacher!!! My daughter can now do vibrato and play at a much higher level.

"As a former professional musician with an undergrad in Music, my standards are pretty high when I'm selecting musicians to teach my kids. My son has been taking viola lessons with Regina for 2.5 years. She is professional but also down-to-earth and great to work with. My son, now an 8th grader, played a level 1 solo at the District and State ISSMA contests and earned a Gold at both levels--the only kid in his school to do so. We credit Regina for appropriately pushing him to be his best. You can be assured that when you choose Regina, you're choosing one of the very best teachers around."

"Elisa is a very responsible, skillful, and sweet teacher

Before Elisa moved to Ventura, CA, she was a master student and taught in IP piano school and Kwong Kow Chinese School in Boston, MA. My daughter, Sarina, was one of her students. My daughter loves her so much and made good progress when Elisa was teaching her. Elisa made Sarina relax and comfortable so that she was enjoying the learning process; she emphasized on skill and poses, she tried hard to help the students to get to the best they could. She is reliable as you can talk with her about the timing change and make up lessions. She came to our house to say goodbye and hug Sarina before she left. She is a great teacher that you can count on and you will enjoy her teaching."

"Kendra is an amazing viola teacher. Since this was my first online lesson ever, I was skeptical at first. However, Kendra's kindness and positive attitude assured me that I had made the right decision. She covers many aspects of both the technical parts of handling the viola, as well as perfecting intonation and handling a wide variety of styles of music. She also is attentive to specific needs, and accomodates for different paths depending on individual goals. Thanks for all you do for me Kendra!"
