I am a professional violinist and violist. I learned to play viola when I was 13 and our school music teacher was forming a string quartet. We had many terrific violinists at the school but no violists so I volunteered to learn. It opened up many worlds and opportunities for me. I received a big scholarship because I played viola when I did my Masters Degree at Boston U. I got chances to travel abroad that were only because I played viola. So it’s a wonderful thing for students to add if they already play violin or to switch to if they prefer the deeper, darker sound. Have fun! Add opportunities to your life!

About Leslie S.

I can teach any and all ages and have for thirty years! All you need is a desire to learn. I have taught complete beginners and advanced students who win competitions. I have a Master's degree from Boston University in music performance and have performed with the Washington National Opera, the Boston Pops and am currently a member of the National Philharmonic. I also am on the faculty of the Levine School of Music in D.C. and Silver Spring. I am equally comfortable in viola and viola so look forward to teaching you either one!
