Master the viola: Enthusiastic teacher with a doctorate in music
Violist Rebecca Glass earned her Doctorate in Musical Arts from the Cleveland Institute of Music, where she also completed her bachelors and masters degrees. As a frequent chamber and solo performer, she is enthusiastic about helping students master their skills in viola, so that they may share there music with others. She appreciates that music is often best enjoyed when performed in a group setting, and is always happy to assist her students in the preparation of audition materials for local orchestras, All Region, and All State competitions. Her teaching focuses on classical viola repertoire, scale and technique work, as well as etudes. Ultimately, each student has their own strengths, and Dr. Glass believes in guiding each member of her studio towards those activities and venues that will allow them to make the most of viola studies.
