Private Viola Teacher

I have been teaching violin for six 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 or 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

Great instruction, she had me working with the bow on the very first lesson. Very responsive to students needs, A+ will continue studying viola with phoebe.

Miss Phoebe is an excellent, patient instructor for my two young violinists! She is prompt, and has lots of tools in her tool kit to bring about proper posture, tone, sound. She exhibits a very warm kind discipline that makes clear her expectations without being mean about it at all. I think my kids have made significant progress under her tutelage and I would definitely recommend her for any skill level!

I'm an adult learner who went through Suzuki book 2 and a few other pieces with Phoebe as my instructor. I spent a month prior with a "bad experience" and hadn't taken lessons in probably 10 years before that.

Working with Phoebe was GREAT. She was very easy to work with and really saw to improving my skills. She was encouraging and very positive. When I had troubles with parts (which was often), she would always have multiple suggestions as to how to practice them to work through the difficulties. She also gave me nudges along when I didn't think I could do certain things too. All in all, I had a great experience working with Phoebe and would have loved to continue to work with her if she was still in my local area.

If you're wondering why not 5 stars, that's more from my lack of experience than any issue with her. The guide says 5 stars is the "best teacher ever". She probably was the best teacher ever for me, but I'm somewhere between beginner and intermediate. Is she a good fit for an advanced student, I'm going to guess that, yes, she is, but I don't know that info personally so I went with 4.

Elizabeth is a phenomenal instructor! Both kind and patient, she is incredibly knowledgeable and takes the time to help me understand the nuances of technique or the background of a particular piece of music. I'm nowhere near a natural player, but her approach to structuring my lessons and practice activities fits my needs as a learner, especially considering that I am an adult student juggling a myriad of other responsibilities. Elizabeth is adept at tailoring her lessons and long-term approach to my growth as a player to my skills and challenges, so that I not only immensely enjoy the experience, but also feel the growth I am making each and every week. She's the best I've ever had!!

Learning to play an instrument is 90% student and 10% teacher. Your improvement is primarily based on how attentive you are and the time you put into practice. My ultimate job is to teach you to become your own teacher, to understand and grasp technical and musical objectives to the point of artistic independence.
Whether your goal is to simply try something new or become a pro, my approach is the same, and that is to help you become the best musician you can be and understand the power and incredible depth of music.

About Jordan

I received my undergraduate degree in violin performance from The Juilliard School, also currently finishing my last year of graduate studies there under Li Lin and Naoko Tanaka. I previously attended the Juilliard Pre-college from 2010-14 as a student of the late Stephen Clapp. I performed regular

Drawing from a wide array of performance and teaching experiences, I tailor unique lessons to Viola and Violin students of all kinds who are ready to take their playing to the next level. I hold all of my students to a high level of achievement, while integrating their personal goals into my lessons. Some of my students have described lessons with me as "whacky and fun." Students learn basic skills, advanced techniques, music theory, music history, among other subjects to help inform effective and enjoyable performances. What do you want to achieve? Let me know and let's work together to get there!
