Private Viola Teacher

I always say to students, it's not WHAT you're playing, it's HOW you're playing it that is the sign of a good player. Technique -- the HOW -- is extremely critical, before one can play pieces -- the WHAT -- well. Lessons with me involve establishing a solid basis of technique, also learning to read music rather than playing only by ear, and of course, learning pieces. Get ready for a wonderful journey of discovery about the intricacies, difficulties, AND rewarding joys of playing the viola!

Online Viola Teacher

I am section violist in the Nashville Symphony Orchestra and I have played extensively with the Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Chautauqua Symphony Orchestras. I received my bachelors degree and artist diploma from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music where I studied with Masao Kawasaki and Jan Gruning.

I believe that every student is unique and deserves specific teaching catered to their individual musical needs. Many teachers, I find, try to impose their methods and feel there is no room for exceptions.

About Emilio

I received my Bachelor of Music Degree and Artist Diploma from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music under the tutelage of Masao Kawa

Emilio is a wonderful musician and an equally fantastic teacher. I have attended his Masterclass and I have seen students transform under my eyes. As a teacher, Emilio adapts to the personality and goals of every student and he brings out the best in them. He is a very patient, encouraging and dynamic teacher. Anyone would be lucky to study with him!

"Megan is so pleasant and fun! She has strong focus on technique, and explains these practices in a way I can understand. Since I am a beginner, and adult learner, it's important that my music teacher is patient and cheers me along throughout the process - Megan definitely has that gift. I also appreciate that she writes down technique tips and exercises for me to practice at home (so I remember what she taught me in class.) I'm looking forward to continuing to learn from Megan, and play music beautifully on my Viola one day."

"If I could write anything to hope that you choose Kristen to teach you, imagine it here: _______. That said. She is Amazing, Fantastic, Patient, Fun, Understand, did I say Patient!? I am a 28 year old man that is learning Viola as his "2nd" real instrument. I play piano well, and "campfire" guitar. Kristen is teaching me to read Alto clef and play the Viola. She is teaching at MY pace and not complaining when I come in without having the most practice time accomplished throughout the prior week. She has a flexible schedule and is available for communication (email and phone) between lessons (I've rescheduled many times because my work hours are not constant). She's Great! I hope you let her teach you! Thank you for reading."
