Private 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 ...

Hollis has been my violin instructor for over a year. I'm an adult beginner student and have truly enjoyed learning with her and am quite happy with my progress in the first year. She's very positive and has a keen ability to pick up subtle issues with my technique that always make a big difference in my playing once I apply/correct them. She does an excellent job of keeping my focused and my love for the violin continues to grow with each lesson. Whether 4yr old or 50+ yrs old, I highly recommend her.

I've been taking piano lessons with Jonathan for over a month now and I've been very pleased with his teaching. He's extremely knowledgeable and skilled, but what I appreciate most is his enthusiasm during lessons. He keeps the lessons fun, even when the subject matter is difficult. On top of this, he's just a cool, nice guy who I've enjoyed getting to know.
Brandon
Working with Johnathan has been a joy.

It was my purpose setting out to study music in general, not just to study an instrument but to use the instrument as a means of approaching music in the abstract. I set out to study music’s mechanics and theoretical foundations.

Jonathan is very knowledgeable and very meticulous. He has a precise and analytical sort of mind, and very strong foundations in his classical training.

To have a wealth of knowledge in one's subject is not enough, one also has to know how to teach (which is a whole skillset of its own). It is clear Jonathan is an experienced teacher. I have never felt rushed with Jonathan, he is very generous with his time. He provides ample resources for study outside of our sessions, and is quick to respond to emails. He has lent me books, sent me links to videos, and provided me with plenty of homework.

Jonathan has also been very accommodating in allowing me to have some authority in planning lessons and exploring my own interests. Particularly I wanted to study modal music and found a folk song in the Locrian Mode. We took a break from the Suzuki work we had been doing and he helped me transcribe the song and practice.

I could not recommend Jonathan enough, I am switching focus from violin to piano for the time being and will be employing him as my piano tutor, and I’m very much considering taking spanish lessons under his tutelage as well.
Ian S.
Ian Really enjoyed his lesson. Jonathan is very knowledgeable and helped Ian with his basic skills and gave him great pointers. He also gave him an outline and daily practice requirements.

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

Musicking is meant for everyone - let's get started! My name is Christina Sack. I'm a 4th-year student of Music Education at the University of Connecticut. I love to give violin lessons that are completely personalized to YOU. Regardless of whether you are a complete beginner, would like tips on a specific technique, need a mock audition judge, want to improve your ear, you name it - I'm excited to meet you where you are at and point you in the right direction for success.

Fundamental to playing any genre of music is a firm foundation in technique. Students can expect to receive positive and constructive feedback about their performance in each lesson, along with demonstrations and practical suggestions for further practice. If you have a particular method of study that you wish to pursue or a book that you would like to use (Suzuki, Essential Elements, O'Connor, etc), I'm glad to work with you within your method of choice. If you don't have one, that's also fine - I'm happy to ...

"Awesome Instructor!

It's evident she cares for her students....very patient with my daughter, my daughter has been under her care for about two yrs now, even sparking her interest to play another string instrument!

I cannot say how appreciative our family is of Ms. Heins and would certainly recommend her."
