I am a firm believer that anyone can learn how to play an instrument and enjoy doing so. Although my teaching style is grounded in establishing a foundation of strong technique, I am also well aware that not every student is going to enjoy or want to play classical music, and that's okay! My goal is to help my students establish a relationship with their instrument and music in general, so they are able to grow and develop in the direction they want.

About Brittany S.

Brittany Stockwell “The Purple Violinist” is a professional musician, music teacher, certified children's yoga & mindfulness teacher, and mindset mentor.

“My entire life has been devoted to music, the arts, and mentoring children, even when I was a kid myself. While earning my Masters Degree in Teaching, I realized my heart was telling me to pursue music again. And that is what led me to where I am today as an educator and artist. I believe there is nothing more important than using our talents to help others. And this is what has motivated me to pursue my passions of performing, teaching music & yoga, as well as mentoring others in mindset and managing their own creative businesses.

Through discipline, hard work, a positive attitude, and the willingness to learn something new, we can become better equipped to handle any new task or adventure at any age.”


I teach students of all ages and specialize in violin and viola lessons. The foundation of my teaching is based on technique, which I believe with dedicated practice develops into individuals' musical style and musicianship. I also believe that music has no boundaries and every musician deserves to explore a diverse repertoire of music genres. My students are given the opportunity to dabble in several genres of music including classical, jazz, fiddle, and pop.

Music is for everyone. Anyone, whether a young child or adult, is able to appreciate music and benefit from it. I believe everyone has the capacity to learn how to become a musician. I have had students who were 2 years old and students who were 67 years old. I believe that hard work and effort is half the battle and essential to any musician's development and journey. If you work hard and have pride in your effort, you will have fun and appreciate your progress! At the heart of my philosophy is that music changes lives and enables individuals to develop into well-rounded, disciplined, empathetic individuals. Everyone deserves the opportunity to explore music at some point in their life. It is never too late to discover its power!

Our daughter was starting violin for school in the Fall of 2019.. Of the available teachers who were doing lessons in school, we took a chance and ended up choosing Brittany based on the very little information that we received at the time. We have been so happy that we did - it has been a wonderful experience and relationship for our daughter. Brittany was patient and kind with her as she learned in those early days. I recall one day our daughter had a rough day, and mentioned it in her lesson - Brittany took that extra step of emailing us to let us know what they had talked about. It was nothing major in the end, but very much appreciated that she was looking out for our daughter!
Obviously, lessons changed to remote only in March 2020, but Brittany was still effective despite the lack of in person attention. We can hear how far our daughter has progressed on the violin in the last year, and Brittany’s patience and passion for music come through in how she cares for her students and their progress. There are of course days she doesn’t necessary feel like doing her lesson, but every single time that she goes into it feeling that way, she has come out of the meeting with a big smile on her face.
If our son decides to learn violin or viola when he goes into middle school next year, it won’t be a question about who we will ask to help on his journey, and Brittany will have another student.

Brittany is a great Viola teacher always motivating my 10 year old to do well. She is very thorough and organizes the materials according to the student's skill level. She fixes all the flaws without discouraging the students. She works very patiently with my 10 year old boy and has been very encouraging for the past 2 years. We love to have Brittany as our Viola teacher :)
