Private Viola Teacher

I've been teaching viola for over 27 years and my students have gone on to play in youth orchestras, community orchestras, attend PMEA and ASTA events or go to college as a music major. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to improve your playing skills and as time goes on you'll be able to play at a more advanced level. I specialize in Traditional Classical violin, typically use Essential Elements 2000, Samuel Applebaum methods, Suzuki methods, Barbara Barber books and traditional scales and etude books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Today was our first lesson and my son ran into my room at the conclusion of his session with nothing but positive things to say about Miss Susanna. He said that she was personable and lightened the mood with jokes during the lesson. She provided him with new techniques and skills just in the first lesson that he found extremely beneficial. He said that she is the teacher that he has been longing for and he thanked me for finding her. We look forward to working with her and his continued progress.

Susanna is an amazing instructor who takes the time with her students to truly get an appreciation of the instrument they are learning. Susanna offers any student patience, understanding and a wealth of knowledge to gain confidence in playing. Highly recommend for any Violin, Viola, or Cello students.

Catherine has been a terrific violin instructor for both my 14 year old daughter and 13 year old son. She is very passionate and methodical in keeping them motivated and engaged in learning the violin. She has been great and the kids love her as a teacher. I highly recommend Catherine for anyone considering an online violin teacher for their teenage kids.

My daughter has resumed her violin playing now that she has lessons with Catherine. She had stopped for a year, and after a few lessons her tone started to sound just like it was when she left off. She improves with each virtual lesson, but most importantly she really enjoys them. I also appreciate that we can schedule lessons
at intervals other than weekly. Thank you, Catherine!

Online Viola Teacher

I have been teaching professionally for the past six years. As a student who struggled myself in nearly every aspect of education, I understand the importance of individualized learning. As a teacher and performer, I look to find relationships between the emotional and intellectual facets of music. By doing this, I try to uncover the mystery of violin playing, allowing my students to gain an understanding that will last with them forever.

Every single student posseses the potential to fulfill his or her violinistic dreams. I cater my teaching around the goals of each student, while still instilling a high artistic integrity.

Though I center each lesson around building a superior technical foundation, duet playing, the theory of harmony, and aural skills are integral parts of my teaching. I strive for my students to develope a beautiful, in-tune, pure sound that can directly connect to their own emotional palette.

I went to him for some feedback on my orchestra excerpts before a big audition I was worried for and he had really great advice not only about the music itself but approaching auditions mentally and physically. He also demonstrated a lot of them and his playing was simply inspiring. If you want to really learn how to play viola, Michael is your guy!"

"I studied viola from 4th grade through college and have had many different teachers. I took a very long break from studying because it was getting to be too much like work and no fun.
Returning as an adult student was a tough decision for me, but Kendra has made it fun again! We've worked through some of my old bad habits that none of my previous teachers addressed and I can play without left hand pain for the first time in my life. It's amazing!

Kendra is patient and encouraging and has really helped me rediscover my joy and love of playing the viola. I can't recommend her enough!"
