My name is Emily, and I am looking for students of all ages and abilities! I have been playing violin for 14 years and have a degree in violin performance from Temple University's Boyer College of Music. I have taught violin in various music programs in the Philadelphia area. I can also teach viola and piano from the beginner-intermediate level. I have a very encouraging and positive teaching style, and you will have fun as you learn and explore new things about music!

Very nice and professional. My daughter loves her.

I’m an adult viola student which is kind of different for me. I started playing again after a couple years and I’m trying to learn ways to play with other musicians. Emily has been really good with helping me focus on what I want to learn. She is patient with me and also plays with me and makes me feel comfortable in my lesson. afterwards I feel good and positive and I want to play more! I suggest her for anyone trying to be creative and wants to improve on tempo, rythm, tone etc. she’s good.

Emily is a wonderful teacher! She is very patient and professional. Her interesting small techniques usually helped me to understand the music better. I have recommended her to my other friends and they all like her. A lesson with her is an enjoyable experience.
