I started viola 8 years ago in order to expand opportunities and get to know more about this amazing instrument, but I began teaching about 4 years ago. I am comfortable teaching beginners to advanced students, and incorporate basic music theory, note reading, and any other skills a student may require based on their skill level.

Online Viola Teacher

I teach students of all ages and specialize in violin and viola lessons. The foundation of my teaching is based on technique, which I believe with dedicated practice develops into individuals' musical style and musicianship. I also believe that music has no boundaries and every musician deserves to explore a diverse repertoire of music genres. My students are given the opportunity to dabble in several genres of music including classical, jazz, fiddle, and pop.

Our daughter was starting violin for school in the Fall of 2019.. Of the available teachers who were doing lessons in school, we took a chance and ended up choosing Brittany based on the very little information that we received at the time. We have been so happy that we did - it has been a wonderful experience and relationship for our daughter. Brittany was patient and kind with her as she learned in those early days. I recall one day our daughter had a rough day, and mentioned it in her lesson - Brittany took that extra step of emailing us to let us know what they had talked about. It was nothing major in the end, but very much appreciated that she was looking out for our daughter!
Obviously, lessons changed to remote only in March 2020, but Brittany was still effective despite the lack of in person attention. We can hear how far our daughter has progressed on the violin in the last year, and Brittany’s patience and passion for music come through in how she cares for her students and their progress. There are of course days she doesn’t necessary feel like doing her lesson, but every single time that she goes into it feeling that way, she has come out of the meeting with a big smile on her face.
If our son decides to learn violin or viola when he goes into middle school next year, it won’t be a question about who we will ask to help on his journey, and Brittany will have another student.
Lalitha
Brittany is a great Viola teacher always motivating my 10 year old to do well. She is very thorough and organizes the materials according to the student's skill level. She fixes all the flaws without discouraging the students. She works very patiently with my 10 year old boy and has been very encouraging for the past 2 years. We love to have Brittany as our Viola teacher :)

Brittany is a very nice teacher. My daughter loves to come to her lessons.

"Helen has taught and is continuing to teach both my daughter, for viola, and my son, for violin. Helen has been absolutely amazing with each of my children. She has been able to adjust to their needs and personalities keeping them engaged and excited to keep learning.

I love that Helen makes sure her students understand the fundamentals of their instruments, and she spends time teaching the kids the correct way to hold the instruments and bow so they form good habits from the beginning.

Helen is patient, kind and full of positivity and praise for her students. I am thrilled to have Helen work with my children."

"My son has been taking viola lessons from Helen for seven years. We have been very happy with her instruction and the wonderful, caring connection she has made with our son and family. Helen encourages each student’s progress while holding them to very high technical and musical standards. She engages students with age-appropriate, entertaining games and prizes to hook their attention and shape important skills and techniques. Helen is focused on molding young musicians into skilled, confident, advanced players while still being understanding and flexible with students’ life changes and schedules.
She encourages students to get involved with chamber music and other orchestra opportunities to expand their ensemble playing, and she connects students with other musicians to collaborate on projects. She has coached our three children with their string trio and has helped them select music appropriate for their level and interests. Helen is happy to help students with their orchestra auditions, seating auditions, and ensemble music.
Helen is an active professional musician as a member of the CSO and Highlands Square Ensemble among other professional musical pursuits and interests. She is involved in bringing musical opportunities to underserved communities through El Sistema and involved in music education in Haiti. This summer our son was able to collaborate with a violinist from Haiti who was visiting Helen. They worked together on several duets on a few occasions.
Throughout the school year, Helen facilitates studio group classes where students can play for each other in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Helen connects students with excellent professional accompanists who are adept at collaborating with young musicians. In addition, she organizes 1-2 studio recitals per year where students can share their work with family and friends.
Helen is a talented musician, an excellent teacher, and a wonderful human being. She is patient, kind, helpful, and encouraging. I highly recommend her as an outstanding viola instructor."
