Lesson Details

Viola

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I began learning the viola when I was five years old, so I understand the need to find fun and passion when playing. That doesn't mean you won't be challenged each week, but we'll make sure you learn more yourself as a student and a violist along the way. I approach each student differently based on their learning style.

I have always loved music from an early age. I began playing viola at five years old playing with the Washington DC Youth Orchestra. I continued his career being classically trained in not just viola, but piano as well. Along the way I picked up guitar, drums, and more! I then studied under violist Katherine Murdock at the University of Maryland. I've performed at the White House, the Kennedy Center, and the Spanish Embassy. I now live in Los Angeles recording and producing my own music as well as artists nationally and internationally. My favorite thing about music is the creation of new sounds from a blank slate. My favorite thing about teaching music is making music fun. When taking lessons with me you can expect to have fun but also deeply learn the craft while discovering your own passions along the way. I look forward to getting to know you as a student and learning about your specific goals, interests, and learning style. Book a lesson now!

Troy is great. He has been teaching our 6 year old daughter violin. (Not viola) as her first ever instrument. He is super patient, thoughtful, understanding and engaging. From moment we met him we knew he’d work for our daughter. He is multi talented playing many instruments so the background seems to really help him engage variety of levels. Excited to see this take shape. Def recommend Troy

Troy was a fabulous instructor for my 10 year old son while he was in DC. Troy made the lessons fun, and my son always looked forward to his weekly lesson. I noticed a dramatic improvement after the first few weeks. I would highly recommend him as an instructor.

Troy is a fantastic teacher. Trying to learn piano at 25 is no easy feat and he was so patient and really tried to understand how I learn best. He made it fun by picking music he knew I would like but also introducing me to new genres! Highly recommend him!
