Every student is different; therefore there is no one method or strategy that will work universally. I create tailored lesson plans for each student taking into account age, experience, personality and learning style. Lessons can include ear training, music history, harmony, sight reading and improvisation depending on the level and goal of the student. When working with young children, I typically use games and activities and follow Mimi Zweig’s principle of violin teaching, which is based on natural physical motions nurtured in a non-judgmental environment. This pedagogy uses the Suzuki repertoire but can also be used with other books. The Suzuki method is one of the most popular in the US. This method establishes strong musical and technical fundamentals. Other methods lead to similar results and can be just as enjoyable and interesting.
For older children and adults, I choose appropriate repertoire based on their musical interests, while still focusing on technique. Typically ...

About Lidia

I was born in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain, and started playing the viola at the age of 5. When I was 19 I moved to London to study at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama where I attained a Bachelor of Music with Honours. Following my Bachelors degree, I completed a Master of Performance at the Royal C

Easy going, right to the point, and with a great game plan for improving my playing. Can’t wait for my next lesson.
Sabrina
Lydia is an excellent violin teacher. She has a very gentle, patient demeanor which is so important when working with kids. My daughter started lessons just after turning 5, and though her focus was not always there, Lydia always found ways to keep her learning and engaged. 6 months later, my daughter is much more focused and already playing songs and starting to read music. I think it's important to note that Lydia is very organized, always on time, professional, and pleasant to work with. Very highly recommend!

Lidia is awesome! She is a great teacher; so patient and loving! My son looks forward to her lesson every week. We are so grateful!

Private Viola Teacher

I specialize with beginner, intermediate and adult learners. I currently hold a degree in music education from LaGuardia Community College, pursuing my master's and bachelor's at Montclair State University this fall for music education and performance for the viola. I'm not afraid of travelling (in fact, I enjoy it!) and am easily reachable and approachable. I understand the world of music, let alone classical music, can be intimidating and challenging; in response to this, I develop an individual basis teaching method as everyone's needs are different and make the experience as fun and engaging as possible.

About Ashley

I am currently a junior at Ramapo College studying music education but I am no foreigner to teaching. I have been teaching for some years now with general ages ranging between 3 to 25, in the violin, viola and cello. I have also taught music theory from a beginner's standpoint to a college sophom

She cancelled 20 minutes into the lesson. Very unprofessional.
Dalia
My lesson with Ashley was wonderful. She is very patient and great at explaining things to an adult beginner like me, and clearly very passionate about violin music and teaching. She was very easy to get in touch with after I set up the lessons. Thanks!
Kathleen M.
Ashley was very helpful to me. I was floundering. I am a brand new 'musician', still learning to read music. I would still be working with her, but I had to move suddenly. She was very encouraging and I hope to be able to continue lessons again with someone in my new location.

Learn to play viola with technical efficiency and learn to unleash your inner musical self! Lessons are about fostering a learning environment where a student can explore, develop and harness musical and "violistic" ideas for themselves. My teaching focuses on building musical skills as well as critical reasoning skills, work habits, creative problem-solving, and self-awareness. Students will experience a wide range of viola repertoire and etude material.

About Dave

My name is Dave and I LOVE to play and teach the viola! My students find success at school music festivals, youth orchestra auditions, and college auditions. I have experience teaching students from 4th-40th grade and love getting to know the needs of each student.

Viola lessons are geared toward student goals: better orchestra seating, youth orchestra auditions, coaching for chamber ensemble performances, college auditions, or simply to master the instrument. I'm fun and engaging, and make the lessons informative without being overly taxing.

"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."

"If I could write anything to hope that you choose Kristen to teach you, imagine it here: _______. That said. She is Amazing, Fantastic, Patient, Fun, Understand, did I say Patient!? I am a 28 year old man that is learning Viola as his "2nd" real instrument. I play piano well, and "campfire" guitar. Kristen is teaching me to read Alto clef and play the Viola. She is teaching at MY pace and not complaining when I come in without having the most practice time accomplished throughout the prior week. She has a flexible schedule and is available for communication (email and phone) between lessons (I've rescheduled many times because my work hours are not constant). She's Great! I hope you let her teach you! Thank you for reading."
