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.

Concetta is a wonderful instructor - prior to my lesson I was feeling nervous - not sure what to expect, not feeling worthy, etc. - she quickly put me at ease and we had a very productive 1st lesson - well worth the investment of my time and money

I haven’t ever enjoyed a music lesson as much as I do with Concetta.
Concetta is warm, charismatic, and truly loves what she does which inspires me to keep going.
It’s the hour that I look forward to the most each week!

My first lesson with Concetta was great. I received a lot of good feedback and things to work on for this first week. Really looking forward to lesson 2 next week!

Mr. Blackwell is very kind and is an amazing teacher. He takes time to help me understand music especially the theory sections. He is not just a music teacher but he is an excellent mentor.
Paul
Luther has been very helpful at teaching me the basics while also making sure we move at a pace in which I am comfortable before jumping into any new exercises. I look forward to having him as a teacher for a long time.
Brian Gee
When I was 53, I decided that I would like to learn how to play the bass guitar. I contacted Mr. Blackwell to see if he would be interested in teaching an older person how to play music. Mr. Blackwell told me that he could teach me how to play and my age is not an issue. I still remember my first lesson. I showed up with a music book and Mr. Blackwell said we are not going to use a book at this time because he wanted to teach me what I needed to know for my skill level, which by the way was novice! Three years later, not only can I play the bass, read music and improvise as needed, I play in a band and we are on the radio! If you are thinking of learning music or want to advance your music skills, Mr. Blackwell is the teacher that you are looking for! Bravo Mr. Blackwell!

Online Viola Teacher

I have been teaching for over a decade, from young and adult beginners, to undergraduate conservatory students and occasionally "lending and ear" to other professionals when they have a concert or audition coming up. My musical experience has lead me to different cities in North, South America, and Europe; as an orchestral, chamber music, soloist, and educator. Each concert, like each student I've worked with has taught me something valuable in return.

Teaching Philosophy: To teach is to instruct with care and to nurture. I believe that each pupil is an aspiring
artist and must be nurtured as such. They must be taught not only how to be a proficient musician, but how to live as an artist. This is my mission and my promise to each and every pupil I work with. I believe that each aspiring artist is unique and must be instructed in a personalized, disciplined, and inspiring way. As a performer, I wish to pass on my experience and help each pupil find their own unique “voice” as we ...

"Aleksandre is a wonderful teacher! I have been working on Mozart's Symphonie Concertante, and he helped me realize certain musical liberties while at the same time maintain my technique. Aleksandre's way of explaining things has made it very easy for me to progress as a violist. When he demonstrates specific ideas on his viola, it is extremely clear to understand, plus it gives me inspiration to be as good as him. His artistry, patience, and enthusiasm is why I chose him as my teacher."

"Kendra had my 13 year old for about a year and a half as a complete beginner, and we'd still be with her for sure were it not for an easier alternative at a new school this Fall. Kendra has an amazing understanding of the younger student and what incentivizes them to learn and grow fast. My child practiced once a day for at least 30 minutes and in the above time is already making a lot of beautiful music. If you/yours is motivated, Special K is the way! Thnx, Kendra"

"As a former professional musician with an undergrad in Music, my standards are pretty high when I'm selecting musicians to teach my kids. My son has been taking viola lessons with Regina for 2.5 years. She is professional but also down-to-earth and great to work with. My son, now an 8th grader, played a level 1 solo at the District and State ISSMA contests and earned a Gold at both levels--the only kid in his school to do so. We credit Regina for appropriately pushing him to be his best. You can be assured that when you choose Regina, you're choosing one of the very best teachers around."

"Kendra has been a joy to work with so far through virtual lessons. We are just beginning with her and we are encouraged to continue forward. She has a laser eye for technique and is warm and kind. She not only explains technical placement but she also explains the reasons why they are important. She is great with my 9 year old and really checks for understanding along the way."
