All ages are welcome! Viola is one of my secondary instruments and I would love to pass on my passion for music to my students. Students can expect to learn how to play the viola with proper technique in a way that is unique to each student. Students use the Suzuki books, Barbara Barber scale method, etudes and student requests in their lessons. Brynn’s students will also learn basic music theory, which includes reading notes, rhythms and key signature recognition for all major and minor keys. Students can also expect to improve their overall musicianship skills while earning audition skills and gaining overall confidence. I cannot wait to work with you.

About Brynn M.

Brynn is an experienced violinist with a Bachelor's of Music in Violin Performance from Youngstown State University. She has studied under the guidance of Professor Joseph Kromholz. She has been playing the violin for 13 years. She is classically trained but has experience performing other genres. She has been a part of many honors ensembles such as PMEA District 1 Orchestra, PMEA Honors Orchestra and Strings North in PA. At Youngstown State University, Brynn participates in the Dana Chamber Orchestra, Dana Symphony Orchestra, and various chamber groups.

Along with participating in the ensembles offered at her college, she regularly performs with the Shenango High School pit orchestra each spring under the direction of Doug Butchy. Brynn has performed at Carnegie Hall in NYC, the Covelli Center, DeYor Performing Arts Center and Stambaugh Auditorium in Youngstown, OH. Brynn frequently plays with the Greenville Symphony Orchestra as a substitute violinist in Greenville, PA.

She is a recent participant at the Renova Music Festival in New Castle, PA. The festival focuses on chamber and symphony orchestral music. Through scheduled concerts and events in the community, Brynn is able to share her passion as a performer.

Brynn also teaches each summer at Cello Fury Rock Camp which is an alternative strings camp based in Pittsburgh, PA. The students learn extended techniques and play rock music in both an orchestra and chamber music setting. She helps in masterclass, orchestra and she coaches the rock bands throughout camp since 2015.

Brynn's organized, individualized and friendly teaching style can help her students reach their musical goals. Her students can expect to improve each week in their technique and overall musicality. Each lesson is tailored to the individual students and she wants her students to have fun, love music and improve throughout their lessons. She uses the Suzuki books, the Barbara Barber scale method, Sevcik, Schradieck and student requests to help them achieve their musical goals. Brynn would love to help pass her passion for music along to her students and cannot wait to work with you!

Brynn offers lessons in the Cleveland area online and at her teacher location all year.

Brynn has child abuse clearances and criminal background checks (with fingerprints) in OH and PA.

Brynn was such a great teacher for my daughter! She was engaging and supportive throughout the lesson. Her knowledge about music and the viola is phenomenal! My daughter is so excited to connect with Brynn for her lessons each week.

It was our first lesson and as a parent I trust Brynn to position my daughter to be a great violin player. As she instructed my child she also made sure that I understood what she was teaching so that I can assist her with practices at home. This was very forward thinking and I appreciated her sharing her knowledge with me! My daughter has a great time!

Brynn is patient and kind while always pushing my daughter to reach for her potential. Being in the military we move frequently enough that it has disrupted our daughters passion for the violin. Her current school lumps all kids together based on grade not skill and that has been "boring". We are happy to see not only new things learned but our daughter is back to finding songs and attempting to learn them and practicing during homework breaks. Brynn has been phenomenal and I highly recommend her to anyone that wants to learn and have fun.

Brynn is very patient with me and takes time to go over the music before playing. She fosters a positive learning environment, and is very encouraging.
Brynn not only teaches you to play the violin, but she goes over the fundamentals of violin practice etc. I don't have enough space to explain, you have to try a lesson for yourself!

Brynn did a great job helping me with my violin. We had some connection problems, but that wasn't her fault. She is nice and sweet and encouraging and patient. She also gave helpful tips.
