Private Viola Teacher

I love teaching violin and viola, and have been doing it for over 10 years. I believe private lessons are an essential component to successful musical development and growth. It is my hope that my students develop the tools they need to become independent musicians. I strive to create an atmosphere that fosters not only growth in technique, but in character, personal discipline, and a long-term appreciation for music.

I am an active performer, and play violin and viola with the Atlanta Ballet and Atlanta Pops Orchestras, among others. I hold a dual-Masters degree (MM/MA) in Violin Performance and String Pedagogy from Ohio State, a Graduate Performance Diploma from the Longy School of Music, and a Bachelors in Music Education from the University of Georgia.

Shadwa is awesome! She’s very patient and understanding of student needs. She’s also very encouraging and helpful, whether you’ve had violin experience or not, and makes learning to play so much fun!
Christine
I have learned a lot from my lessons with Shadwa. She has a knack for explaining technique, for making the connections between the physical movement and the sound produced. (Yes, it really does help to stand up straight!) She takes a personal interest in her students, which makes for a great lesson atmosphere. We established longer term goals that we could work towards; I appreciated her patience and creativity. Even scales became more than just boring drills! I definitely recommend her as a viola teacher for adults!

Private Viola Teacher

I have always loved the deeper sound and colors that the viola produces. I must admit that when picking my professional violin, I really wanted and looked for an instrument that had many of the tonal properties of the viola! I've taught viola since 1965 and many of my students have received degrees in viola as well as scholarships to music camps and universities. I've performed on the viola many times in various ensembles and always enjoyed the deeper and special qualities of sounds that only a viola can produce. Our first lesson together will include helping each student be more comfortable while playing, after that, within the first year of study, a full understanding of how to make a beautiful, rich tone with vibrato and ability to move freely through the first 3 positions with good intonation and ease of movement. Most violists that I have worked with have a special love for their viola and have a passion for its performance. In our lessons together, you will learn how to ...

Mr. Ralph Boehm is a great teacher. He is firm in
his teaching, yet very kind and generous. He has spectacular humanity. As far as technique, he finds out where his student is weak , and tries hard to turn the weakness into a strength and will work extra time to correct the flaws of his student. He is a rare individual
and instructor. I consider myself very lucky to have him
as my violin teacher.
Jennifer
Ralph is a wonderful cello instructor. Kind, caring, thoughtful and very knowledgeable. His directions really helped my daughter’s technique and sound quality. He teaches violin, viola and bass as well. Highly recommend!
Lori
My daughter has been taking lessons with Mr. Ralph Boehm for seven months. She loves her weekly lessons due to Mr. Boehm’s professionalism, passion for teaching and passion for music. He ensures his students have the basics down to the muscles in their hands before they progress. I highly recommend him for students who are eager to excel at their instrument.

I have been teaching viola for seven 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 and 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

Currently, I am pursuing my Masters degree at the Eastman School of Music. I am originally from Taiwan, and recieved a Batchelor in Music from the National University of Singapore. I am an experienced teacher with students from beginner to advanced levels. In addition to the viola, I also teach violin, piano, and elementary school orchestra. Music is a language with which you can convey yourself without speaking. My teaching method begins with fundamentals including posture, pitches, and technique. Using those, we can start with whatever you would like to learn. Classical music, Pop music and everything in between.

Through lessons, you will not only learn how to play an instrument but also have the ability to listen to, appreciate, and understand all music in order to communicate with people. Wondering if lessons will be a good fit? it is ok. Feel free to ask for a trial lesson first!

This instructor is very flexible and understanding. He is very knowledgeable and talented and I'm very privileged to be his student. He takes his time to make sure that you are understanding and learning. You can sense his excitement and passion for music and I know that he honestly wants to see me succeed.

"Michael is the rare pairing of a professional performer and fantastic teacher of viola & violin technique. I have seen the benefits of his pedagogy first-hand in my middle school orchestra classroom in Plano ISD. I have been lucky enough to have him teach some of my students for over 3 years. He has helped many of my students overcome barriers in their practicing and performing. With your commitment to putting in quality practice time, lessons with Michael will certainly result in significant musical growth."

"She's the best! My daughter started on violin with the school and then moved on to viola. Finding a viola teacher is no easy task! In fact, finding anything for the viola - music, strings, etc ... is difficult! But Kimberly does a great job and got her off to a wonderful start. We are so incredibly happy to have Kimberly teaching our daughter. Do not rely on your child's school to teach viola - go directly to Kimberly."
