I love the viola; I'm primarily a violist and love nothing more. I would love to share my passion with you or your child!

I have a Master's degree in Viola Performance, and viola is my primary instrument. I have received extensive instruction on the minutiae of the viola, and can help you with any need that you many have!

I tailor my approach to each student. Some students require more technical work, some require interpretive. Both are fascinating and can be taught with structure and clarity.

Students can start from the very beginning or come in to improve technique, sound, skills, ear training, intonation, and reading music. Students work on scales, exercises for tone and coordination, vibrato, solos, audition music, and orchestral music. I can recommend many youth orchestras in the area. Some of my students work on auditions and music for All Southern Youth Orchestra and All State Youth Orchestras. I go at the student's pace and also start out many beginners. Students learn to sight read and practice rhythm exercises to prepare for orchestra auditions and playing with other musicians.

About Jill

Jill has been teaching music privately since 2002. Some of her students have won concerto competitions and music awards, music scholarships and participate in local youth orchestras. She teaches violin, viola, and piano. Jill graduated with her Bachelor's of Music Degree in Performance Violin an

I'm the gramma of Chloe (the student)who is 12 yrs old and taking Viola lessons from Jill over Zoom for home school. And I have to say as I was listening in the background I was thinking, Wow! It's as if they're old friends already! She has a very reassuring and friendly personality. And Chloe already learned something in that first lesson when Jill was trying to assess Chloe's abilities. I'm sure you'll immediately like her teaching abilities as much as we do.
Renee M.
Jill is just amazing! She breaks things down for me in session to help me develop my skills in a manner that helps the information just sick. She is always so patient and has such a great sense of humor.
Jason R.
My daughter has been learning from Jill to play violin for more than five years and she has improved dramatically over that time. She also takes piano lessons with Jill which has fed her musical curiosity. Jill is patient, positive, and an expert in her craft. Great teacher!!!

All students will be coached on proper technique, posture, scales, arpeggios, and etudes depending on skill level as these are all the important fundamentals of playing. Not every lesson will include all of these points in great detail, but some lessons could focus only on these details if need be. The student's personal repertoire is the main study of every lesson with which I can offer coaching in bowings, technique, and interpretation.

I am a classically trained violist and string instrument enthusiast, born and raised in the Chicagoland area. I attended and graduated from Western Michigan University with a BM in music performance and have since worked as a music teacher in San Diego. I am the strings director at Double Peak Scho

Let's Play Music!
Many people think that learning an instrument is a long and grueling process that takes years before being any fun, but this couldn't be any farther from the truth!

Especially in this day and age with so many resources available, it does not have to take decades to reach a fun and satisfactory level of musicianship.

What you are looking for is someone who can teach you what YOU want to know.

My approach to music teaching is fully CUSTOMIZABLE.
Instead of following a strict curriculum, every lesson is tailored specifically to your goals and interests.

Not interested in reading notes? No problem.
Only want to cover your favorite pop songs? You got it.
Trying to write your own stuff? Let's focus there!

Whatever makes music fun for you, you can count on me to help you find less ...

About Avenira

What is it that sparks your unique musical expression? That is what I'm here to help you find and pursue. Maybe you want yourself, or your child, to know everything there is to know about music? Perhaps you'd like to learn to how to play your favorite songs? Or do you have your owns so

Joy
My 16-year-old ---who had not practiced for over a year---is absolutely loving her lessons with Ms. Avenira! With only 3 lessons, I am now seeing the spark for playing the violin return to my daughter's eyes. Ms. Avenira is meeting my daughter "where she is" and truly customizing lessons to move her forward. She provides detailed updates for each lesson, and I could not be happier with my investment. Excellent teacher.
Michelle P.
Avenira really connected with my 14 year old, while our daughter has always been enthusiastic to learn an instrument, putting in the practice and the work has been a challenge in the past. Avenira's format, which allows flexibility for how the student learns best, is really working. My daughter has been practicing every night (unprompted by us), and is really excited abut her next lesson with Avenira. She also loves that she can learn both guitar and piano with Avenira, since she is interested in both. Avenira was very motivating, complimenting our daughter for being focused and for doing a great job during the lesson. Definitely would rate Avenira A+++++++!!
Ela
Avenira has such kindness! She has taught me so so much and she was the best instructor I had. She let me learn the song I wanted to learn, and I felt more passionate and confident about my singing and playing than ever. I wanted to practice more, I wanted to become better, and this never happened with other instructors.

Pedagogy is one of the few and rare professions that requires true vocation and conviction. I believe that teaching comes from sharing and I love to help each and every one of my students develop their own gift and understanding of music. This year marks the beginning of my 11th year of teaching and I am fascinated and humbled by everything that I have learned from all of my students!
Learning to play an instrument is a formative, fun and inclusive process for both teacher and student. I enjoy seeing my pupils progress and ultimately, finding their voice and telling their own story through music. My objective as a docent is to inspire students to develop high intrapersonal intelligence so that they may become their own best teacher.
It is my hope that my students will acquire tools that will not only help them become better musicians but that will also assist them in other areas of their lives.
The student will learn healthy ways of approaching the instrument. I guarantee the

Aleksandre is an amazing teacher! I've only been taking lessons with him for a month now and already feel more confident in my technique and happier with my sound! Aleksandre has incredible skill with the instrument and, importantly, is gifted in teaching as well! I highly recommend Aleksandre if you are looking to begin playing the viola or starting up again after decades like me!
Michele
My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed her lessons with Aleksandre and she has made tremendous strides in just 1 year with his instruction. He is nurturing and encouraging, giving praise when it is due, but also is meticulous and has high standards. In this sense he really strikes a perfectly balanced approach to teaching and shows a genuine investment in her progress. He demonstrates an obvious passion for the instrument and it is thrilling and inspiring to hear him play. He is a real role model and a cheer leader for his students. She and I both highly recommend Aleksandre!
Alexis
Aleksandre is an outstanding teacher! Truly one of the best. My son began taking lessons with Aleksandre a little more than a year ago. Aleksandre has a way of teaching that completely engages and excites my son while ensuring that he is learning how to read music and play with rhythm and feeling. When we had to go remote, Aleksandre did not miss a beat. My son has grown to love the violin so much that we increased our lessons to twice a week. I would highly recommend Aleksandre as a professional, thoughtful and extraordinary teacher of the violin.

"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."
