TEACHING
As a performer, soloist and active chamber musician, and as a pedagogue, I provide private lessons to any individual interested in the art of music, education, and the good times. My teaching welcomes individuals from the youngest to college students. My primary instrument is the Viola, and simultaneously I focus on the instruction of the Violin, and the early and beginning studies of the piano. I have great experience as master class teacher, sectional leader, group teaching, and individual or one-in-one pioneer.

About Maria
BIOGRAPHY
Violist Maria F. V. began her music studies at the Carabobo Music Conservatory where she played in the Infantile & Youth Orchestras, and in the Carabobo Symphony Orchestra. She then transcended her studies to the Simon Bolivar Music Conservatory and into the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela. She has performed with different other orchestras such Venezuela Youth National Orchestra, New Jersey Youth Orchestra, Peru National Orchestra, Gustav Mahler Symphony Orchestra, and Latin-American Symphony Orchestra. She has worked with conductors such as Eduardo Salazar, Joshua Dos Santos, Gustavo Dudamel, Sir Simon Rattle and Claudio Abbado.

She holds a BM Performance degree from University of Kentucky, and a MM Performance degree from the University of North Carolina-Greensboro where she worked as Teacher Assistant under Sco
tt Rawls. She has attended several music festivals within the United States and Internationally such as: Cincinnati Conservatory Music Festival, Cleveland Institute of Music Viola Workshop, Brevard Music Festival, Aspen Music Festival, Orford Music Center in Canada, Parma Conservatory-Italy, Musica en Compostela in Spain, and many others. Back at home in Venezuela she is considered founder of el Sistema’s Carabobo Music Conservatory. Her Major teachers include Santiago Garmendia, Margaret Karp, John Graham, and Scott Rawls.

TEACHING
As a performer, soloist and active chamber musician, and as a pedagogue, I provide private lessons to any individual interested in the art of music, education, and the good times. My teaching welcomes individuals from the youngest to college students. My primary instrument is the Viola, and simultaneously I focus on the instruction of the Violin, and the early and beginning studies of the piano. I have great experience as master class teacher, sectional leader, group teaching, and individual or one-in-one pioneer.

THE OUTCOMES
Apart from the academic outcomes the student will obtain at lessons, my intentions as a teacher and artist is to incorporate and welcome the student in the fantastic music world and literature. One of the many purposes of music is the idea of the student developing a sense of responsibility along with following tasks in a didactic and dynamic manner. I love bringing and promoting the idea and the philosophy of enthusing and inculcating a leadership position of the student in the family, and building most importantly a harmonic and artistic environment among their relatives and into their homes. I love to program and propose little student recitals in where the student will have the opportunity in performing the pieces worked throughout the teaching sessions in a little concert for their friends and family. Every student loves the fun in which they get from these opportunities and from their performance experiences. I do believe that the learning and instruction of music is an important influential factor in participating and in the development of many other abilities and skills; in the expansion and promotion of creativity, the adoption of a more discipline attitude for other arts, it helps to easier approach other academic courses, and to focus on developing the tools and creativity to participate at their schools and anywhere else.

*** Lesson Details ***
METHODOLOGIES
About the teaching methods used, I basically like to approach the beginner student through the methods of Suzuki, which is a very efficient and didactic method most pedagogues uses today. This one is a clear method that demands from the student and it simultaneous engages the interaction and participation of their parents, family, friends, and their community as well. In other occasions, it is most common that I would also incorporate a new student to my studio-transfer students-, who would have used other materials and methods with his/her previous instructor. In this case I would continue using his/her methods to examine the level and content learned and practiced. Then, it is in later lessons where we might establish and suggest other good methods and books to which the student might be ready to switch or scale up to.

I've been teaching violin for about 6 years and am currently pursuing my Doctorate of Musical Arts in Performance at CU-Boulder. Having taught as a private teacher for younger students as well as a Teaching Assistant for a String Methods class in my undergrad, I am extremely comfortable working with a wide range of ages and skill levels. I teach classical and Suzuki style, as well as basic music theory, note-reading, and other skills based on the student's needs and skill set.

I am a performer, recording artist and an experienced violin and fiddle teacher since 1995. I am capable of teaching all ages and levels up to advanced. My approach uses many decades of lessons and pedagogue with F.A.S.E. (Foundation of String Education), Suzuki and traditional European methods. What makes my teaching unique is a healthy infusion of improvisation and fiddling.

Born and raised in Dorchester, Massachusetts, Ms. MacLeod has been immersed in music her entire life. At the age of five, she began her musical studies at the South End Music Center. In the 1970's, she began her performance career in the richly creative Cambridge-Boston folk scene. She has performed at weddings, festivals, regional coffee houses, contra dances, and local restaurants, as a solo musician as well as a member of groups such as "Blackstone Cúil," "Riverbend," "Frosty Morn," and "Patchwork."I bring a fusion of styles and techniques to my coaching.

I incorporate the most useful classical practices from traditional European, Suzuki, Bornoff method (Foundation for the Advancement of String Teaching), and guidelines from ASTA (American String Teachers Association) to give my students a solid base of correct posture, full tone,
and confidence with the instrument.

Each lesson comes with a summary of topics covered and techniques to be practiced at home. Lessons were flexible and focused on the things I wanted to learn at the same time providing opportunities to stretch into other areas as well.

For the dedicated, adventurous, and creative student.

I create a space for the intelligent and inquisitive to explore what is possible through music, using the violin and other instruments or the process of music production as an opportunity to develop their personal voice.

You can learn and master an instrument, and I will help you do that, but there's more to it than that.

You can create music in a way that makes your life better. Through mastery of an instrument, or the skills of music production, you can see the world through a more colorful lens.

I teach violin, piano, voice, music production, composition, and songwriting.

About Josh
I have a privately run studio in my home in North Austin. I am a performing, recording, and teaching violinist with a Bachelor’s Degree in Classical Violin Performance With An Emphasis On Music Composition and Technology. I am a songwriter, composer, pianist, and singer as well, with a background in: acro yoga, bodywork, a handstand study, and a curiosity in speed learning, body awareness, mental agility, flow, and expression. This allows me to take a more holistic view of playing music. My experience gives me the belief that music can be used as a tool to develop the mind and body through awareness and strategy, not just chance.

My understanding of music has affected the way I perceive the world, and the way I move through it. I enjoy sharing that with my students.

I teach a lot of skills and instruments. My greatest joys are teaching
the violin, and music production.

The violin is an instrument that is incredibly simple conceptually and, when played, provides an infinite opportunity for variation. The process of learning involves stripping that infinite variety into a set of simple ideas that are learned, ingrained, and, eventually, the variety is reintroduced and creative ability begins to show itself in a usable form. Using the violin as a fun and rewarding method of self expression, and a tool for sharpening the mind and the body provides a powerful combination that, when approached with regular practice, can provide a depth of benefit far beyond possessing a new skill.

Music production is a huge part of music, a bigger part of the future of music. And every great musician is a producer in one sense or another. To me, production is seeing the big picture. To decide what you want the hear, to imagine a sound, an arrangement, a complete track or album, and to bring it into the world complete with all the precision and happy accidents that go along with that process, that is music production. I particularly enjoy teaching electronic music production through Pro Tools, Ableton Live (what I use the most personally), or Fruity Loops. I'm comfortable with most modern software relating to music. And I will guide you through the process of learning effects, recording techniques, sound design, songwriting, composing, arranging, and mixing, to create the music that reflects your imagination.

Louisville, KY
View Full Profile

As a teacher of both violin and viola, my mission is to help prepare students to both build a skill-set on their instrument and aid in the organizational process towards becoming a confident and articulate musician and person. My studies with an extremely diverse group of professional musicians during the course of my student life have greatly shaped the way I view my own playing, and I aim to bring the best of my training to my current and future students. Students can expect to engage with the organizational, technical, theoretical, and artistic elements of being a musician.

About Brandin
Brandin Kreuder (24) enjoys a growing career as a chamber musician, studio musician, and as an orchestral musician. Mr. Kreuder began the violin at the age of 9, and at 23 he switched primarily to the viola. In 2018, at the age of 24 he was named a finalist for the New World Symphony Orchestra in Miami Beach, Florida. He is currently the viola TA to Brittany MacWilliams at the University of Louisville School of Music, and performs in the graduate string quartet.

With a strong entrepreneurial drive, Mr. Kreuder performs with pianist Craig Jordan as Duo Vis-À-Vis. They have performed five self-organized concert tours since meeting in 2016. Recent performance locations have included Kansas City, Missouri; Boulder, Colorado; San Francisco, California; Madison, Wisconsin; and Amsterdam, Netherlands.

As a fellow with the Henry Mancini I
nstitute orchestra at the University of Miami from 2016-2018, Mr. Kreuder has performed and shared the stage with Julie Andrews, John Williams, Kristen Chenoweth, Matthew Morrison, Bruce Hornsby, Monica Mancini, and James Galway (among others). In 2017, he served as the concertmaster for the world premiere performance of The Pink Panther live with the film in Boca Raton, Florida.

In summer of 2016, Mr. Kreuder was accepted as a leadership scholar to the Sewanee Music Festival in Tennessee, where he had the privilege to attend on full scholarship and coach student chamber groups. In 2014 he attended the Oberlin Baroque Performance Institute (BPI), as an intern on full scholarship. Mr. Kreuder credits baroque practice to developing looser playing.

Mr. Kreuder has performed in pit orchestras for over 30 theatre productions. In the summers of 2018 and 2017 he held the position of Principal Viola with the College Light Opera Company in Cape Cod, after formerly serving as Assistant Concertmaster in 2015. Additionally, he worked as the Principal Second Violin with the Franco American Vocal Academy in Périgueux, France.

Mr. Kreuder has been fortunate to perform on a number of fine instruments, including a 17th century Andrea Guarneri violin from Lawrence University, and most recently a Gaetano Gadda viola on short-term loan from violinist Charles Castleman.

Outside of music, Mr. Kreuder exhibits his ceramic and drawing work professionally. In spring of 2018, he had work exhibited in both Petoskey and Traverse City, Michigan. In April of 2017, other work was featured in a juried exhibit in Miami’s Wynwood art district, where it was selected as the Best of Show. Mr. Kreuder is also an avid traveler and has visited 12 countries outside of the USA.
