Mariel C.

Mesa, AZ

Whether you're a beginner, advanced player, or just want to learn new techniques and different styles of music, I can help you reach your goals and have fun with your instrument!

About Mariel

I was born in Mexico City and have been playing violin for 17 years. I received my degree in Music Education from Brigham Young University, and have been teaching people of all ages and levels for 7 years.

My main goal for my students is to help them build the very solid basics of their instrument. With my training and experience with string instruments, I can help them develop a good sound that will give them the confidence to continue their studies and perform for others. Although my training has been mostly in classical music, I have had experience teaching all kinds of genres such as co
untry, bluegrass, and pop.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a Suzuki certified teacher and use the books for my lessons. If you can't read music, I'll teach you all that you need to know when you're ready! What you can expect from me is to help you get a good, solid start and build up your skills from there. I will do all that it takes to help you be satisfied with your progress and help you reach your goals!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I don't provide my students with any equipment. They need to bring their own books, instrument, and supplies such as shoulder rest, rosin, bow, etc.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki Method

What a joy Mariel is. So patient and understanding, puts up with my bad jokes, terrible playing and allows me to go where I want to go with the material.
I can not speak highly enough about her, but I will say I don't think any one could be better than she is.
Thanks for putting up with me Mariel

Dee F.

Scottsdale, AZ

I have taught middle school orchestra for over 7 years and private viola for over 10 years.

About Dee

*** Travel Equipment ***
Books. Students must have their own instrument (keyboards are acceptable for taking piano lessons). I always council students on brand, quality of instrument they are purchasing before they buy it.

*** Specialties *** I have been a public school music educator for over 20 years, and have taught band, orchestra, and choir which enables me to teach many instruments and voice. I also have been a language and reading tutor for over 6 years and have worked with students with special needs for over 10 years.
I studied classical guitar with master guitarist, Christo
pher Parkening, at Montana State University where I graduated with a B.M.E. I also did graduate work at MSU in composition. I teach Suzuki piano and violin. I am an accomplished composer/songwriter with many published and recorded songs and instrumental works through ASCAP. I endeavor to make learning fun, and enjoy teaching students of all ages!

I am a 52 year old who has never played an instrument nor do I know how to read music. Dee was more patient with me than I was with myself. I would recommend 30 minute sessions instead of 45 minutes. It is a lot to handle when starting from square one.

Our experience with Dee has been very positive. She is punctual, very professional and pleasant with the kids. I would recommend her to another family looking for a music tutor for their child.

The viola is my main instrument. I have been teaching viola for over twenty five years. I teach both traditional western methods and Suzuki style. I have a Doctorate in the Viola. I am very experienced teaching all ages and levels. I teach out of my home studio in Scottsdale. If you have ever dreamed of learning to play music, I can help you make that dream come true.

Carolyn has done a great job with my son on the violin. She is filling in the missing pieces from his past instruction and is making sure he gets what he needs going forward. She also encourages as she teaches.

Brian M.

Tempe, AZ

Students in this area will receive extensive instruction on musicality, the fundamentals of reading/interpreting musical notation/symbols, comfortable and physically healthy approaches to holding the instrument and practicing effective posture, as well as performance techniques. Most beginners will start from the Suzuki series. Lessons are custom tailored and planned according to the individual student and his/her individual needs. What do you want to learn, and what do you hope to gain from our time together? These questions are among my top priorities when starting with a new client. All levels (including advanced) are included in this category (see lessons for Audition Preparation as well).

About Brian

After graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance (Violin) from the artistically vibrant and widely recognized music program at Central Washington University, I traveled to the nationally recognized Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University where I am currently in my 2nd year of my Master's Degree in Music. I have been teaching both in-home and in a professional capacity since 2005. Having personally prepared many auditions, I have both experiential and technical advice to offer intermediate to advanced players. Music theory and its ap
plications is another one of my passions and I am always excited to share this knowledge in all instrumental lessons, which include both violin and viola. Lessons through this website will be held at the School of Music at ASU in the practice room facilities which are secured with card-key access, and are very private and comfortable. All styles of playing are welcome! Beginners are usually started on the Suzuki program.
I also have experience teaching at the incredibly successful and internationally acclaimed LindaMood-Bell Learning Processes where I worked with children K-12+ on phonemic awareness and reading comprehension, knowledge which would be a perfect match for anyone looking to enhance their child's reading skills (many of the clients I have worked with were diagnosed with learning abilities before enrolling, and all showed significant progress after completing the program).

My six year old son with no musical experience desperately wanted a violin for Christmas. Santa brought him one and we needed someone to teach him how to use it. We started taking lessons in January with Brian and he was extremely patient with a curious child who had many questions, not all about music and the violin. My son has progressed well and looks forward to his weekly lessons with Mr. Brian.

Brianna L.

Tempe, AZ

I have been playing the viola since high school and use the same principles to teach viola that I use to teach the violin. The instruments are very similar as far as technique and beginning repertoire.

About Brianna

I am a recent graduate from the University of Idaho. I earned my degree in Instrumental Music Education and have been teaching privately for 7 years. My main instrument is violin, but I took to other instruments very fast and am very qualified to teach viola, cello, clarinet and saxophone. Before moving to Arizona, I taught many violin students through my own private studio and through the University of Idaho Preparatory Division. My students ranged from ages 3 to 50. I currently teach private instrumental lessons to grades 2-8 at a private school and work at an after school program at a chart
er school. The majority of my experience is with students age 3 through 8th grade.
