Classically trained at prestigious Mussorgsky school of music in St. Petersburg, Russia, with over 20 years of teaching experience.

I utilize several teaching methods to best suit the needs of a student and make lessons enjoyable and productive. I introduce my students to a variety of styles while teaching classical techniques for lifetime skills. When not teaching, I play with Nova Vista Symphony (First Violin) ,Campbell String Chamber Orchestra (Concertmeistress), Winchester Symphony Orchestra, and a variety of instrumental Ensembles featuring Klezmer Music, Russian Tangos and Brazilian Choros.

ickly learn the basics and start playing familiar melodies. I teach memorization techniques to develop a performing repertoire.
In addition, my students develop abilities in rhythm, melody, harmony, understanding of theory, and improvisation. I also help with school orchestra practice and audition preparation.

Experienced Music teacher of 8 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of their instrument and theory skills. I specialize in all styles. Typically, I use a variety of method books to pick from to meet the needs of the students. I also have many tools available to use during lessons.
My students have gone on to NYSSMA and on to college auditions successfully!

About Amber
I have been teaching private lessons since 2008, but have been studying music since I was only 4 with non stop private and in school lessons. I now have my Bachelor's degree in Music education and am working toward my Masters in Music performance and Instruction.
I love working with my students. Watching them succeed at what they do is what makes my day great. I always love to have a fun atmosphere around me and enjoy every minute it. Music is great for self expression a great Escape or an easy pass-time. It's nothing that should be stressful, but the opposite and that is what my lessons aim to do. Provide an educational, but fun and expressive learning experience to carry with you or your child throughout your lives.

About Virginia A.

Close

If you are a beginner, you can expect to first master technique of the instrument. Afterwards, you will learn how to master a beautiful tone and sound.

As an intermediate, you will learn how to approach things in a different way than normal. You will learn not only how to play something "correctly" but how to play musically, artistically and beautifully.

As an advanced student, you can expect to be challenged to think critically about technique, sound, phrasing, etc.

About Virginia
Currently a Graduate Assistant at Kent State University, I have over 4 years of teaching experience with strings and piano. I have played my primary instrument, viola, for over 10 years.

I love to encourage students that quantity doesn't always beat out quality. That being said, I love a laid back lesson environment where the student can feel comfortable enough to ask questions, and make mistakes so they can learn and do better next time. I have taught kids as young as 4 years old, and adults as old as 50 years old.

San Luis Obispo, CA

I have been a Los Angeles Philharmonic Teaching Artist since 2013, and an instructor at the award winning Harmony Project of Los Angeles since 2009. In 2016, some of my students were featured with Beyonce and Coldplay at the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show in Santa Clara, CA. Students under my instruction have gone on to attend major music schools such as the Julliard School, San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Oberlin, Peabody Conservatory as well as many other. I also founded and direct the Pacific Crest Music Festival in northern California.

I love teaching, and have a very successful track record with both technique and musicianship. I believe that while there must be process in place, every student is unique and I enjoy finding what motivates the artist in all of us!

I just began a new job teaching at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, CA. While I'm getting situated here, I thought I'd give some online lessons! Normally I charge considerably more than this, so take advantage of the ...

This highly intensive, personalized, and celebrated summer chamber music festival has worked with students from all over the US, as well as Japan, Colombia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Uruguay.

Michael was my first viola instructor after I switched from violin. I was in need of an instructor to put me in shape in order to audition at music conservatories, so I studied with him. His experience with chamber music, orchestra, and studio recording really made him a great fit as those were the things that really interested me. I learned SO much with Michael and still use the techniques he taught me years ago. He is super patient and has multiple styles of teaching for various ages. No doubt, he is one of the best instructors I have ever had. Thanks to him, I am now studying at his alma mater, SFCM.

I began learning the viola when I was five years old, so I understand the need to find fun and passion when playing. That doesn't mean you won't be challenged each week, but we'll make sure you learn more yourself as a student and a violist along the way. I approach each student differently based on their learning style.

About Troy
I have always loved music from an early age. I began playing viola at five years old playing with the Washington DC Youth Orchestra. I continued his career being classically trained in not just viola, but piano as well. Along the way I picked up guitar, drums, and more! I then studied under violist Katherine Murdock at the University of Maryland. I've performed at the White House, the Kennedy Center, and the Spanish Embassy. I now live in Los Angeles recording and producing my own music as well as artists nationally and internationally. My favorite thing about music is the creation of new sounds from a blank slate. My favorite thing about teaching music is making music fun. When taking lessons with me you can expect to have fun but also deeply learn the craft while discovering your own passions along the way. I look forward to getting to
know you as a student and learning about your specific goals, interests, and learning style. Book a lesson now!

Troy was a fabulous instructor for my 10 year old son while he was in DC. Troy made the lessons fun, and my son always looked forward to his weekly lesson. I noticed a dramatic improvement after the first few weeks. I would highly recommend him as an instructor.

Troy is a fantastic teacher. Trying to learn piano at 25 is no easy feat and he was so patient and really tried to understand how I learn best. He made it fun by picking music he knew I would like but also introducing me to new genres! Highly recommend him!
