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!

Private Viola Teacher

I began teaching viola lessons privately 5 years ago and have had as many as 40 students at one time. I have had many beginner students of all ages, and welcome students of any age or level. I approach each one of my students individualistically, focusing on the kind of music that interests and excites them most, while also providing material and exercises to help strengthen the students’ musicianship and technical proficiency on the instrument. I believes in bettering my student’s abilities through encouragement and positive reinforcement, guiding them to find a love and commitment to music. I understand that above all else, music should feel fun and rewarding and serve as a way to express yourself. If you're not having fun, you're missing the point! I have taught classical music, jazz, fiddle, and pop, and have a background in the Suzuki Method

About Livia

I graduated from the University of Maryland in 2015, where I received my Bachelor of Music degree in violin performance, studying under performer and pedagogue Dr. James Stern (D.M.A., The Juilliard School.)

Livia was my sons violin teacher for 3 years. We couldn’t have asked for a better teacher. My son started when he was in third grade with a different teacher, and it was not a good match. Livia came and met my son and they clicked right away. I asked my son (now in 7th grade) what to say in this review, he said that Livia is a great teacher, he learned a lot, and he had tons of fun. She has a laid back and patient manner. Because of her I believe he will have a lifelong love of violin. I give her my highest recommendation.

Lessons are fun. My philosophy is that students should have music in their lives and benefit from the lessons they take now for years to come. Learning to play a musical instrument will help students with math skills, study habits, and develop a skill that will last for a lifetime.

After 3 months students will understand the fundamentals of their string instrument, know how to care for their instrument, warm up properly, be able to read and play introductory passages. After 6 months the student will have learned basic music theory, how to read music, and have advanced through playing multiple songs.

About Betsy

Music is the biggest passion in my life. I love being able to share that gift with my students, and look forward to their progress as much as my own. I continue to grow and develop as a musician, and love connecting with people through music. My students all learn to love and appreciate music, t

Online Viola Teacher

Hello! I've been performing for 21 years and teaching for 15 years. Teaching has always been a passion for me! Whether you're an adult trying the violin or viola for the first time, or a dedicated student aiming to major in music, I can adapt my approach to suit your needs. I will help you build confidence in your playing through presenting attainable goals each week, while also providing appropriate challenges. I aim to help you feel comfortable and natural as you play by prioritizing proper posture and technique.

I have a Master's degree from the Peabody Conservatory in Violin Performance with an emphasis in pedagogy. I have performed in the U.S.A. and Europe, with well-known artists such as Andrea Bocelli, Yo-Yo Ma, Itzahk Perlman, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. My teacher training includes the Suzuki method (registered for books 1-5) and the Mark O'Connor method (certified for books 1-2).

My hope is that the violin or viola becomes a constant source of inspiration and ...

Mrs. Hollis is a very kind and patient instructor. She is great at teaching technique and important skills that have to be learned in order to play the violin at your best. My son Ben absolutely loves taking lessons with her and he has learned so much. She is so professional, talented and has so much experience! She is a perfect instructor for anyone who would like to learn to Play the violin!
Olivia
Mrs. Hammonds is such a wonderful teacher! I came to her when I just started high school and was overwhelmed with joy when I found such a great teacher. Focusing on memorization, technique, and working on a solid foundation even after playing for 10 years prior, really reflected in my playing. I think she was the teacher who really showed me why I wanted to play violin and set my foundation up to improve more and more even today!
Kim
As an adult student that let my violin sit idle for too many years, Hollis was able to help me regain some basics skills and build upon them to re-learn different playing styles. Her approach was refreshing and focused on helping me re-learn some classical pieces that were familiar to my background. In addition, she introduced some jazz and fiddle pieces that I was interested in branching out with and worked with me to fine tune bowing techniques for each style.
I would highly recommend Hollis as an instructor for anyone starting out or looking to improve upon existing skills!

All ages are welcome! Viola is one of my secondary instruments and I would love to pass on my passion for music to my students. Students can expect to learn how to play the viola with proper technique in a way that is unique to each student. Brynn’s students will also learn basic music theory, which includes reading notes, rhythms and key signature recognition for all major and minor keys. Students can also expect to improve their overall musicianship skills while earning audition skills and gaining overall confidence. I cannot wait to work with you.

About Brynn

She has been playing the violin for 13 years. She is classically trained but enjoys playing other styles of music as well. She has be

Brynn was such a great teacher for my daughter! She was engaging and supportive throughout the lesson. Her knowledge about music and the viola is phenomenal! My daughter is so excited to connect with Brynn for her lessons each week.
Salome
It was our first lesson and as a parent I trust Brynn to position my daughter to be a great violin player. As she instructed my child she also made sure that I understood what she was teaching so that I can assist her with practices at home. This was very forward thinking and I appreciated her sharing her knowledge with me! My daughter has a great time!
Macaria
Brynn is patient and kind while always pushing my daughter to reach for her potential. Being in the military we move frequently enough that it has disrupted our daughters passion for the violin. Her current school lumps all kids together based on grade not skill and that has been "boring". We are happy to see not only new things learned but our daughter is back to finding songs and attempting to learn them and practicing during homework breaks. Brynn has been phenomenal and I highly recommend her to anyone that wants to learn and have fun.

"I just completed my first lesson with Elisa. I felt so good at the end of the lesson. As an adult learner, I am often uncomfortable with my beginner skill levels and end up feeling embarrassed and apologetic when working with a teacher (silly I know). But she did not make me feel this way at all.

She quickly assessed where I was with my playing and identified quick and easy technical practices to enhance my technique as well as took in my own personal goals. I feel super motivated to practice and look forward to my next lesson with her. I'm so glad I found her!"

We also notice that she enthusiastically practices between weekly lessons. This excellent learning experience would not have been possible without the high quality teaching.

Our daughter has recently switched to Viola and I've no doubt she will continue to learn and enjoy learning from Humberto as she has already done with the violin."

In addition, she made us feel very comfortable as if we had known her a long time. Her passion for her music and love of teaching makes her very enjoyable to be with.
