Viola is a great underrated instrument. I'd be happy to teach any level or age and help you to learn this great instrument.

About Kseniya K.

I have been teaching violin from young children to beginner adults for 10 years. I also teach piano for beginner and intermediate levels.
I believe that the the music potential comes through discipline, self-motivation and passion. As a teacher, my goal is to get to know each of my students and create individually tailored lessons according to my student's needs and goals. I believe that a strong technical foundation is a key in music making - when a student feels comfortable playing the instrument , they find how much they are capable of doing and what a great joy is this music making process. This is why I put a strong emphasis on the technical aspects. They say "practice makes perfect", but in reality only perfect practice makes your playing perfect, in other words, my goal as a teacher, is to give my students all the right tools to succeed, when after each lesson you feel you improved your playing and gained new skills, even if its a small one.
Lessons are taught using a Traditional method refer to students learning to read music. Whereas the Suzuki Method students learn by ear which I (might) use for very young students age 3-5. For older students I use certain aspects of the Suzuki method but definitely incorporate basic theory and note reading as early as possible.
All students will have the opportunity and are encouraged to perform in recitals.

Kseniya is patient, but also pushes my daughter to actually learn how to read music. I'm very pleased after 3 lessons.

My son is 11 and never had a music lesson of any kind before. He had fun learning the basic fundamentals that she is so passionate about.
She is really patient and fun to be around. Great environment for anyone of any age.

I have been taking lessons for 15 weeks and have enjoyed every minute. I can not believe how much I have learned. She has challenged me. Kseniya is very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging. She is a delightful woman and I enjoy just visiting with her.

My 6 y.o. daughter had lessons with Kseniya for 15 months before we relocated and she has learned a lot from her. From being a newly beginner to being able to play arrangements of famous classical pieces and also some movie songs my daughter was interested to learn. Kseniya also taught her how to read the music and explained a lot of theory rules to her. And I could see , she really enjoyed the lessons for all these months - challenging but fun.

If anybody would ask me to recommend a violin teacher, my suggestion would be Kseniya. (And Not only for little children!!)
I got to know her few years ago,and she gave me lot of energy,and pretty much happy lessons! :-) She plays amazing,and She's a great teacher!
Personality is always and important thing also,so if you would like to have happy,and of course still useful lessons, choose her!
