Private Viola Teacher

Need to prepare for a college audition? Perhaps you’ve always wanted to attend Juilliard pre-college and you want to go the extra mile preparing your entrance exam. Or maybe you simply want to advance your skills and learn good practice technique. With me, you’ll get a teacher who has active real-world experience as the violist of the world-renown Tesla Quartet. I am a Doctor or Musical Arts with degrees from the Yale School of Music and the Manhattan School of Music. I have had experience playing solo, chamber and orchestral repertoire.

Micaela
Hire Concetta, especially to support a beginning violin player! She is warm, professional and very adept at finding your child's musical strengths and then identifying material to help them access and enjoy the music and instrument. AKA GOOD TIMES for all and excited to continue...as it should be. Thank you Concetta for your expertise and flexibility with schedule. Keri-Ann

I Love to teach viola, because I love the way this instrument sounds. Everyone thinks it is just like violin but actually there is so many different way to bowing and tech from violin. My goal is make hear how viola sounds, it can actually even touching then cello and violin in some melo piece .

My son has been taking lessons from Cristina for 2 years and wow has he progressed. He loves his lessons, can read music, and is playing well. The struggle is getting him to practice! Cristina has a great blend of warmth, knowledge and discipline that works well for my 6,7, and now 8 year old son. I highly recommend her.
Sarah
Our 8 year old had been taking violin for two years and was about to the point of quitting due to the lack of motivational teaching. I went in search of a teacher that could motivate her while still progressing rapidly each week! My daughter is so eager to please Cristina, because she makes the lessons fun and interesting. When I check in to see how the lesson is going, my daughter is engaged, and answering questions correctly which tells me she's still paying attention - even in the evening hours when she's tired. Cristina mixes classical and popular music as well. I still have to ask my daughter to practice each night but she pulls out her violin on her own a couple of times a week as well. It's a complete 180 from where we were 8 months ago. Cristina is a rare find and I'd recommend her to anyone who wants to ensure their child is getting the best violin training while being inspired!
Everett
Our 11 year old daughter, Drew, started with Cristina for a little over a year, and has made some amazing progress from not knowing how to play, to having great intonation and musicality. Cristina teaches our daughter in a way that works with her interests and learning style, rather than having a regimented curriculum. I think this has allowed Drew to be way more excited about playing.

i've been playing music all my life but since i'm a square parent, it's hard for me to teach drew :) Cristina does a great job giving her guidance during the lesson.
i would highly recommend her as a teacher!

Online Viola Teacher

Welcome to my violin and viola studio! I believe that every student can enjoy the process of studying an instrument, and can learn to play with ease and joy. As a result, I work to determine each student's learning style, look for ways to encourage individual ownership of learning, and adapt my approach to help meet each student’s needs and goals. I teach both Suzuki and traditional lessons, and draw from a variety of musical styles and approaches to help students develop a broad range of skills that include a strong technical foundation, ear training, sight-reading, ensemble playing, and musical self-expression. Through this approach, I hope to help students develop a lifelong love for music that will serve them in all future endeavors, musical or otherwise.

Ms. Sheridan has been my private teacher for quite a while now. She has helped me accomplish some of goals that I had set such as learning how to do vibrato. I am proud to say that Ms. Sheridan is shaping me to be the amazing violist that I hope to be one day. Even through the mist of the pandemic that we are facing, she still manages to be an effective and understanding teacher. I definitely recommend hiring her to work with you or your children.

I've been taking lessons for six months, and I can't believe how far I've come. Thanks Sheridan for having patients with me!

"If you’re looking for a dedicated, knowledgeable and patient strings teacher, you will love Mrs. Heins. Both of my sons have been taking lessons from Mrs. Heins for several years (one for viola and one for cello). They have learned so much under her instruction, such as earning All-County and All-State honors. They also practice their live performance skills twice a year during informal musical concerts. Mrs. Heins also offers participation in the Royal Conservatory Music Development program, which can earn your child credit for college. She is a gem and should you choose her, you won’t be disappointed."

"My son has taken viola from Miss Calvino for several years now. She has made it fun for him. He has learned a lot and has even begun playing in church some now. He plays multiple instruments and the viola has been most difficult. Having Miss Calvino as a teacher has helped take the pressure off because she wants him to enjoy it, not just perfect it. She is very encouraging to him, which makes him want to keep working to improve."
