I am very strict and laid back at the same time. I pay a lot of attention to the technical detailes

.The curriculum is based on the level the student is presently. It reneges from simple scale books to Paganini caprices.

I encourage every student to have at list two recitals a year. Lessons are very intense and productive and i welcome you to my studio.

I had a great first lesson with Armen.
He immediately identified some areas of improvement and I really liked his style which is rigorous, demanding and rewarding at the same time.
Can't wait to our next lesson,

Margaret is a wonderful instructor who provides excellent teaching. I really appreciated that she made a point of not only explaining how to hold the bow, the violin, etc, but also explaining why it's important to use certain positions and posture and how it all comes together as one continues to practice. She's also super friendly and how's a very positive and welcoming demeanor.

About Michelle
I specialize in teaching strings (violin, viola, cello, upright bass) to kids & adults age 4 & up. Yes, you can start at any age. I use the Essential Elements for Strings and the G'DAE colored violin notes.

Lessons should be fun, and you should enjoy it more and more each time you come. That is why I teach not only classical music, but current popular music that is played on the radio. I like to hear the students opinions, and see their reaction when they play songs they can recognize. Sure, technique and posture are taught, but it is in a fun safe environment. I also teach that it is okay to make a mistake. There is no judgment in my class, and if you need more time or more help then that is what you get.

Clef reading, making a beautiful viola sound, playing with comfort and ease, sight reading, and expressing yourself through music.

About Julia
Hey! I'm a junior viola performance major at the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre, and Dance. I started playing violin when I was 8 years old, switched to viola at 13, and the rest is history!

As a teacher, my values are being able to play with physical ease, building a connection with the music you are playing, and producing beautiful, ringing sound. Ideally, our lessons would take place at the music school building in the practice wing. I want the student to love the music that they are playing, so our repertoire choices will always be carefully thought through together. I have lots of experiencing teaching children with zero music experience but am also totally comfortable teaching higher levels including intermediate and high school.

About Melissa M.

Fairfax, VA

Many years of teaching experience both in group and individual settings. I love encouraging students and fostering a love of music. I can teach classical as well as improvisation. I have played as a classical musician, both solo and orchestral, and I’ve played with numerous rock and folk bands.

About Melissa
I began playing violin in elementary school, and immediately knew this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. My first words as a baby were lyrics because I sang before I spoke. I played violin until 11th grade when I fell in love with the sound of the viola.
I studied music performance and music education in college and I have a bachelors degree in both. I have played professionally in orchestras, quartets, as a soloist, and in many rock and folk settings. I have even put my violin and viola through a distortion pedal and a wah wah pedal in heavy metal/punk music. I have over 17 years of teaching experience and am a licensed teacher in the state of virginia. I have taught in a classroom as well as privately, and have also taught students with autism.
As a student of mine you can expect to improve your playing skills week
to week. I can teach from the very first lesson on. Students will learn techniques to improve their playing and will play fun music. If you are interested in learning improvisation, I can help with that, too. I enjoy teaching violin, viola and cello.
I am most passionate about teaching students to become independent, critical thinking musicians who will be able to rely on their own knowledge to learn new music as they go along. I stress music reading, ear training, and strong fundamentals in playing. I am very encouraging, love spreading my love of music.
Just a quick note: I do like to do my business through this website. If you send me an email trying to get me to personally write to your email, I will not respond.
