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!

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.

Absolute BEST music teacher EVER! If patience is a virtue, you will never meet a more virtuous person.

I’ve been taking Viola lesson with Susanna for over four years…including various breaks for health issues (two strokes, carpal tunnel surgery)…and Susanna always knows where to restart lessons.

You can stop looking for a strings teacher now, because you’ve just found the best there is!

My daughter and I had our first lesson with Erin together. We both had a lot of fun and learned alot in the first lesson.
James
Erin went above and beyond to get me my first ever violin/fiddle lesson on my birthday as part of a surprise from my family. As someone who plays other instruments but has never touched anything with a bow, I was very thankful to have Erin to introduce me to the instrument with patience but also thoroughness and clear expertise. Very much looking forward to continuing lessons with Erin as I begin to learn this instrument.

always fun and informative!

Students can start from the very beginning or come in to improve technique, sound, skills, ear training, intonation, and reading music. Students work on scales, exercises for tone and coordination, vibrato, solos, audition music, and orchestral music. I can recommend many youth orchestras in the area. Some of my students work on auditions and music for All Southern Youth Orchestra and All State Youth Orchestras. I go at the student's pace and also start out many beginners. Students learn to sight read and practice rhythm exercises to prepare for orchestra auditions and playing with other musicians.

I'm the gramma of Chloe (the student)who is 12 yrs old and taking Viola lessons from Jill over Zoom for home school. And I have to say as I was listening in the background I was thinking, Wow! It's as if they're old friends already! She has a very reassuring and friendly personality. And Chloe already learned something in that first lesson when Jill was trying to assess Chloe's abilities. I'm sure you'll immediately like her teaching abilities as much as we do.
Renee M.
Jill is just amazing! She breaks things down for me in session to help me develop my skills in a manner that helps the information just sick. She is always so patient and has such a great sense of humor.
Jason R.
My daughter has been learning from Jill to play violin for more than five years and she has improved dramatically over that time. She also takes piano lessons with Jill which has fed her musical curiosity. Jill is patient, positive, and an expert in her craft. Great teacher!!!

I am a lifelong musician who loves teaching. I have been teaching for a decade, and have played in many orchestras and chamber groups. I practice radical empathy in all things, but especially with my students. I believe kindness helps us grow; fostering a positive environment and relationship with my students is important to me, because it is important for their development as musicians. I believe in a holistic approach to teaching an instrument, nurturing and working on body, mind, and soul—a healthy and happy musician is a good musician! I encourage students to fall in love with what they do, and to advance at their own pace. I believe there is no such thing as bad musicians, just learners who are cultivating their art.

The totor is not responsive. She doesn't collaborate with the student to accommodate her needs. There was no class on 12th March and I do not see a response to my query from the tutor yet. Very non-coperative attitude.

It's evident she cares for her students....very patient with my daughter, my daughter has been under her care for about two yrs now, even sparking her interest to play another string instrument!

"Aleksandre is an incredible violist and dedicated, thoughtful, encouraging teacher! His passion for the instrument is obvious and his dynamic but approachable personality is a great match for our fairly reserved daughter. She has made tremendous progress in 1 year of lessons, and we attribute much of that progress to Aleks' meticulous instruction."

"It was our first lesson with Charles for my 9 year old son. We finally found the right instructor! Without being condescending, he taught my son some basics about holding the instrument correctly, how to bring it up for play.... essentially proper playing etiquette that he is not getting at school from a teacher who is far too stretched with a large class of multiple instruments and only ONE teacher. (She really needs an assistant) I think he is going to learn a LOT and I love that he corrects him without being rude nor condescending. I would give him 5 stars but it's our first lesson. Will review again after a month and hopefully gloat some more about him! :) ~ Very pleased!"
