About Deanna B.

I have been playing viola for over 20 years. I regularly perform with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, and have also performed with a variety of other groups, including the Boston Chamber Music Society and the St Lawrence String Quartet.

I studied viola with Kim Kashkashian at the New England Conservatory in Boston, where I earned my Graduate Diploma in Viola Performance.

Deanna connects very well with learners and listeners at all levels. Her joy of music, passion for sharing that joy, professionalism as a performer, and attention to detail make her a wonderful teacher and coach. Deanna excels at musicianship, aided by her perfect pitch, and working with her is both fun and easy.

I was looking for someone with an accomplished background who was also down to earth, and found that in this instructor! The best thing about having Deanna instruct me online was her ability to be patient with my learning process. She cares about the person as well as the student. I found myself rapidly learning about technique as well as motivated to keep moving forward.
