Experienced violist who has been playing for 14 years. I have only had young students in the past, but I am willing to teach adults as well. If you're a beginner, I would love to help you get started and introduce you into all the wonderful music for the violin and viola! I will take the time to find music you specifically enjoy and adjust to your tastes. I care very much about helping you find an ear for music and finding your favorite styles! We'll be learning about technique, intonation, note reading, and of course, music theory. Please contact me if you'd like to see what I can teach you!

Amanda is a fantastic teacher for a beginning violist of any age. Even on days that I am not motivated and don't really want to play she is able to brighten my day with her optimism, energy, and enthusiasm. She has an extraordinary ability to add confidence to a new and nervous student. My experience as a someone in their 30's has been absolutely wonderful with Amanda as my teacher.
Andre R.
We've made such good progress. I'm thrilled.

Best instructor ever. Very patient. Knows how to handle an old guy like me. My playing doesn't really deserve someone as good, but I'm thankful to have her.

Music should never simply be a rote-learning process. We develop real artistry. My students learn how to interpret, transform, and create music. From the first lesson, we experiment with various musical "ingredients" and revisit these tools often as we move through a lesson series or repertoire. Students explore a variety of styles and learn to read, compose, and improvise. Students as young as five have created their own theme and variations on a favorite tune with these techniques.

About Lauren

Hello! My name is Lauren, and I am excited to bring out the musician in you! At Musical Life Studio, we foster music from the beginning through the professional level. Our students include: • Children and working adults in beginning & intermediate study • Collegiate and professional music

"Cornelia is fantastic! We have been going to her for years. We have also heard from friends that she is the best violin teacher in the area. It would be hard not to agree. If you want to learn to play violin, she is the teacher for you. If you do not want to work hard and be accurate with your playing, then probably better to move on."

What Is Violin Purfling? & Other Violin Parts You Didn't Know About?

I’m sure we are all familiar with the basic look, shape and sound of the violin. After all, violins have been around for over 400 years, and you simply make beautiful music by drawing the bow over the strings and moving your fingers! Right? Well, if only it were that simple.  When I meet a new, beginner student for the first time, I always introduce them to the “anatomy” of the violin. There are actually many components that go into the making of a violin, and each one plays an imp …

How Long Does it Take to Learn Violin?

  Wouldn’t it be great to learn to play an instrument in minutes? Think of the musical repertoire you would have! Unfortunately, like many different skill sets, that simply isn’t the case. Learning to play an instrument, as with driving and hitting a great shot on the golf course, is all about practice. The more you practice, the faster you learn, and the better you play. And the violin, a wooden chordophone with a beautiful soprano sound, takes time to learn, just like any other ins …
