Private Viola Teacher

Having taught and performed for over 30 years, I have had the pleasure of working with students of all levels and ages. For beginning students, you can expect to be playing and learning to read music within your first month of taking lessons. I am happy to say that my intermediate and advanced students have met goals of preparing for auditions with success, performance events, and simply studying new technique and repertoire for their own pleasure. I look forward to meeting and sharing your musical endeavors!

Kendra had my 13 year old for about a year and a half as a complete beginner, and we'd still be with her for sure were it not for an easier alternative at a new school this Fall. Kendra has an amazing understanding of the younger student and what incentivizes them to learn and grow fast. My child practiced once a day for at least 30 minutes and in the above time is already making a lot of beautiful music. If you/yours is motivated, Special K is the way! Thnx, Kendra
Corinne
Kendra has been a joy to work with so far through virtual lessons. We are just beginning with her and we are encouraged to continue forward. She has a laser eye for technique and is warm and kind. She not only explains technical placement but she also explains the reasons why they are important. She is great with my 9 year old and really checks for understanding along the way.

During the first lesson we will get acquainted and you can tell me about your history with the instrument and what you would like to learn. Then I will come up with fun technique building exercises so you can play with ease. Then we usually work on a goal piece. For the piece I will give you practice methods and ways to play through the pieces with a beautiful tone. Viola is fun and expect to have a great time!

I switched to the viola at age 19 and pursued both a bachelor's and master's in Viola Performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music and the New England Conservatory of Music.

My husband and I were extremely pleased with the progress our son Thomas made with Dan. Thomas started playing last year and was progressing faster than the rest of his third grade class which is why we were looking for a private teacher to help him along. Before taking lessons with Dan I had a hard time getting Thomas to practice. Thomas has begun practicing all on his own because he has been genuinely inspired. Dan is a true professional who always on time and in a good mood to teach. He was so patient with Thomas and developed practice techniques unique to Thomas's situation. Dan is more than just a violin teacher, he is dedicated to inspiring each student to love music. Thanks Dan!!!

First and foremost, it is so important for me to get to know you and your musical interests (favorite songs, artists or bands). Once I know a little bit more about you and where your musical interests are, I help you build goals based on what you’d like to accomplish...that could be anything from “just wanting to learn something new and to have fun” to “playing my sister’s favorite song at her wedding in 3 months” or “to join an orchestra and make it my professional goal”. My style of teaching over the last 25 years incorporates technique, reading music, ear training, and improvisation. In addition to the violin, I teach viola, cello and piano/keyboard. The genres I love to teach are classical, rock, pop, jazz, film/tv music, and fiddle!

Nancy was excellent. She was no nonsense and to the point in her lessons. We never wasted time and I always left with a little more knowledge under my belt. I’ve moved out of LA and have hired other instructors but none as succinct as Nancy. I definitely got my money’s worth with Nancy. I would return to her for lessons if I returned to LA.
Tamsin
Nancy is a wonderful teacher, my teenage son began with her at the awkward age of 14, new to the violin and a requirement of his new school.
She not only got him playing, but instilled a love of music and of composition. Nancy was also incredibly supportive and encouraging as my son transitioned and has a special place in our hearts

New to LA , I found Leggy Fish Music on my second search for cello teacher. I’m so glad I did. Nancy is great teacher , working with me as some one late to music on basics as well as creative methods.
She creates new and different classes - group , and mash up with different musicians and instruments.
She seems to get the best from all her students.

In my private violin/viola studio, I am helping my students to love the learning process. If a student wants to play an instrument for their enjoyment, he comes to me. If students have ambitions to get prepared for the test or audition, they know they will get help. For students who would like to prepare for the evaluating test, I contribute to preparing for the ABRSM (Associated Board of School of Music abrsm.org) exams. If a student is a beginner, I teach using the Suzuki Method.

I love helping students to achieve what they want. By learning their abilities, I help them to enjoy playing an instrument.
