I teach violin and viola lessons with the aim of improving technique, musicality, and interest in the instrument. Learning a string instrument can be challenging, but I believe it is also one of the most rewarding endeavors you can undertake. I focus on sound production and facility of the instrument, and try to make sure that every student is learning repertoire that helps them and interests them.

Trusted teacher: For violin and viola students, I use a combination of the Essential Elements curriculum, the Suzuki curriculum, and I also often compose original music tailored to the learning needs of each student. I want the student’s experience to be fun as well as educational, so in addition to the curriculum exercises, I will also be sure to add in some fun pieces that the student already is familiar with and enjoys. I have learned that being immersed in the world of music is vital for being a good teacher. Musicians who only teach and do not “cross-train” by performing on their instruments regularly and continuing learning simply do not have as much to offer to their students. I pursue all of these avenues actively, not only for my own benefit, but also for that of my students. My primary goal as a teacher is to be a motivating and inspiring mentor and guide. As the famous Chinese proverb says, a teacher opens the door, but students must enter by themselves. My highest aspiration is to show my students doors that they never knew existed, and giving them the tools to go through those doors on their own.

Hello! I am a Baltimore-based violist studying at the Peabody Institute of Music. My primary goal in teaching viola is to help people make progress as efficiently as possible, with whatever intensity feels right for them. I encourage scales and a small technical regimen for sound production and conditioning, to go alongside practicing repertoire using a method that makes it simple to play cleanly and expressively. Understanding the logic great compositions are built with is essential for making that music truly come to life, so I am a big proponent of teaching music theory as a part of lessons. For beginning students, developing a good musical ear and enjoying exploring the possibilities of the viola always comes first.

Young Strings is the violin and viola studio of Liam, BMus. Liam offers online private music lessons via Zoom from his studio in the Niagara region of Ontario, Canada that are fun, engaging, and impart a real sense of musical understanding. Beginning students will learn from the Suzuki violin/viola method books, supplemented by more creative songs and arrangements. For intermediate/advanced students, we study more advanced techniques such as shifting, vibrato, and advanced bow strokes. The student also has flexibility in terms of style they would like to focus on - classical/pop/improvisation/etc.

Zachary - Woodland Hills, CA$66
Trusted teacher: This course is for viola and violin students from the beginner through the high school level, and any age from 5-99! My goal is for my students to foster a healthy and long-term relationship with their instrument. The course focuses on practicing and truly understanding technique, with an emphasis on listening. Weekly assignments tend to include technical exercises, scales, and classical pieces of the student's choice. Basic improvisation is also an interest of mine and, I find, a valuable experience for my string students. I believe repertoire is largely a matter of student taste. Students of mine have learned pieces in the Suzuki books and other classical repertoire volumes, but have also learned pop and fiddle songs according to their interest. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Violin Performance from the University of Puget Sound, where I graduated in 2015 before moving to Vienna to study privately for three years. I am currently on hiatus from a Master of Viola Performance degree at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague . I have been teaching violin intermittently since 2009. While my musical education is classical, my performance interests are much wider. I have performed jazz and pop improv, and am currently exploring how hip hop can be implemented on the viola and violin.

Trusted teacher: “Talent grows through exercise…” - Shinichi Suzuki I have been giving violin lessons for 10 years, my working method is based on the Suzuki method, the mother tongue method. A child first learns to speak before learning to read and write. Language learning is done mainly by listening and mimicry. For music, it's the same, you must first master the basics of the instrument before knowing how to read notes and scores. Whatever the age of the student, beginner level or confirmed, I offer private lessons of violin and viola. No knowledge or musical notion is necessary beforehand, the theoretical achievements are made as and when the discovery of the instrument.

Trusted teacher: I can teach viola classes at all levels, and violin to students up to the sixth of Professional Grade. I can also teach music theory at all levels and support the study of other subjects taught at the conservatory, such as music history, analysis, orchestra, chamber music, etc. I believe that the teacher must be able to adapt a lot to the student, and especially in music I find it very important to understand the sensitivity and difficulties of each student. I consider myself a demanding person, but very empathetic and patient. It is very important to me, apart from all the factors that affect the performance, to emphasize the care of the posture and the tensions of the body to avoid injuries that can be caused by playing the viola or the violin.
