Private Viola Teacher

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 ...

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!

Online Viola Teacher

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!

As a classically trained violist with orchestral, chamber, and solo performance experience, my teaching style is geared towards performance and expression.

Online Viola Teacher

The main goal of my teaching is to help students express themselves through their music. I tailor my teaching to each individual student, according to their personality, physiology and current needs. While giving students structure and discipline to play with a healthy posture, sound, and intonation, it is also important to keep that same sense of wonder and discovery as when first hearing a new piece of music.

About Helen

[Education] I graduated with a Bachelor of Music from the Korea National University of Arts. After that, I came to the US to study at Mannes School of Music with Daniel Panner, and at New England Conservatory in Boston with Dimitri Murrath. I graduated in 2014 with a Master of Music from New Engla

"My daughter started taking online voila lessons with Nikita, and because this was our first experience with online lessons, we weren’t sure about what to expect. Turns out, my daughter started improving on all of the skills she hadn’t mastered. This growth started very quickly after lessons, thanks to Nikita! Through years of playing, she has never learned to acquire these skills, and after two or three lessons she had fully conprehended them. Nikita helped her so much!"

"Sam has prepped our daughter for an audition for SOTA and after all their hard work, we are over the moon that she had been accepted. Sam's lessons had played a huge part in her doing well in her audition. He picked a complex piece for her solo which I felt had slow and fast movements and tempos, as well as emitted both a lighthearted and melancholy mood. The piece felt much like a roller coaster ride of sounds and emotions all in one piece. Sam has been and continues to be such a great fit for our daughter."

"If you’re reading reviews I bet you’re kinda curious how someone can help you learn Viola online. Let me tell you it really does work!! I am a 26 year old adult who decided to learn viola and Mimi has been helping me fine tune my notes and read music and theory to get better! I wouldn’t recommend online in the very beginning. I feel it was best to go to a shop, get tape on your instrument to know where the baseline for your fingers go. How much rosin to put on your bow because that is tough to tell via a camera, but once you have the basics taking lessons online is great! Mimi is very patient, she can hear my notes and tell me if it’s flat or my bowing is crooked. I send her sheet music I’m interested, we work on basics like scales then we work on sheet music! And if you’re not happy with it they offer a full refund. I would definitely give it a shot if I were you!"
