love teaching strings. I focus heavily on bow technique. I have gotten students into youth orchestras and passed college auditions. I like to use the Essential Elements and Suzuki books.
I also offer online group lessons at a highly discounted price. I suggest that all my students join. This is a great option for kids while class is out.

About Michelle T.

Violin Viola Cello Double Bass ONLINE for over 2 years now!
Great for military and homeschool families- ADULTS & KIDS

$15 for weekly group practice Monday, Wednesday & Friday, online group orchestra ---->Click accompaniment as the subject pick anytime and Ill change the time on my end to reflect the group you are in.

I specialize in teaching strings; violin, viola, cello, upright bass. I teach ages four and up. If you can tie your shoes you can play the violin. I use the "Essential Elements for Strings" and the "G'DAE" curriculum.

Every lesson begins with an evaluation. Your lessons might include how to hold your instrument and how to avoid injuries, tips on how to practice on your own, how to mark music, how to play scales, and bow technique.

Lessons should be fun, and you should enjoy it more and more each time you come. That is why I teach not only classical music, but current popular music that is played on the radio. I like to hear the student's opinions, and see their reaction when they play songs they can recognize. Sure, technique and posture are taught, but it is in a fun safe environment. I also teach that it is okay to make a mistake. There is no judgment in my class, and if you need more time or more help then that is what you get.

I have gotten students into youth orchestras, community orchestras, and college orchestras. Ask about audition prep!

I have found Michelle to be a fantastic Cello instructor. I have learned so much from our lessons over the past year.  I was a bit worried about virtual lessons, but that quickly passed. I have  taken in person lessons at a local university with some very good instructors, but can honestly say I have learned the most about technique from Michelle. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.

Michelle has been teaching our daughter 100% online from the 1st lesson. We are so impressed that she was able to virtually teach my daughter on how to properly play her violin and make fantastic progress. Her school orchestra teacher was astonished at the affordability and success of the Michelle’s online teaching. While school has been out of session my daughter has continued to make significant progress and I know keeping her skills fresh will be less stressful for her when she returns to orchestra class. My daughter also feels positive about playing her violin and even practices on her own... without being prompted.

I think viola or violin is her specialty, and students would likely have a great instructor for those instruments. Cello instruction was not the best at the later-Intermediate stage. It was clear that she did not play the instrument (or not well), and was not aware of all the clefs.

Had my fifth lesson with Michelle today. It was so helpful. I was experiencing pain in my hand after practice and she helped me figure out what was wrong. Having a teacher help adjust positioning has been absolutely vital for me to learn cello. Also, she plays multiple string instruments and I really like that she has customized her teaching techniques for my lessons based on my prior experience with violin.

The first 2 lessons my daughter had with Michelle were very good. She is very nice and fun and has an upbeat personality. By the third lesson, Michelle was still spending valuable lesson time reviewing my daughter's situation (name, music, schedule), allowed her own child to repeatedly interrupt, and was inconsistent with her facts (first saying a dotted half note was 3 counts and then saying a dot is worth 1/2 count, so a dotted whole note is worth 4.5 counts). 30 minutes is not a lot of time and I felt like it was wasted.

Michelle is highly creative and artistic. Her educational techniques are sure to keep things enjoyable. She’s a great Mother and a natural with kids, patient, focused and fun. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing lessons at any age, very easy to get along with.

I have know Michelle several years. She had a great music school in Georgia. Her students were sad to see her go when she moved to NC. With her teaching on line now everyone can start their lessons again. She is a great teacher who has patience with children of all ages. Looking forward to being able to take adult classes. I am so happy that she will be available on line giving lessons. I am so excited!

Having never personally met Michelle face to face, our online experience was more than expected. Our 7 children all benefited from having Michelle as our personal music coach. She was always available by phone and Skype if needed. My children learned to read music and to play by ear thanks to Michelle’s techniques. I would gladly recommend her for any family big or small.

She was an awesome violin teacher for my 2 kids. She was extremely patient and creative with my younger son and helped my older son excel very quickly. I highly recommend her.

My wife and I decided to enroll both of our kids in music lessons, and after careful consideration we felt Ms.Teague would be a perfect fit. Her ability to retain our 6 year olds attention was astonishing, and method of teaching proved to be exemplary. I would recommend Ms.Teague for any age, and or group.

Take Lessons

Teaching online lessons for 3 years now. There was a learning curve for teaching online. I learned I needed a lot more props and be very animated. I love teaching online. This allows me to enjoy my mornings teaching as well as juggle being a mom and spending time with my family. Without an online platform, it would be very difficult for me to continue teaching as studios are not open in the mornings.
