Sean is a wonderful, patient viola teacher. He helped my young daughter master fundamentals at a young age and helped her to have fun while doing so.
Lisa
I am a mother with a teenage boy. My son have learned piano for 5 years, and he decided to pick the viola as the second instrument so he can join the school orchestra with his friends.

We are looking for a viola teacher who have the passion in teaching music and can communicate with the teenage boy. Sean was referred by a friend. Learning viola with Sean is a joyful experience, very encouraging, and inspirational. He is strict while cheerful, is quite patient with students, and pay attention to the details. He motivates his student with his life experience. After tried several classes, my son loves him. He decided to go with Sean for viola.

Sean is a fantastic teacher! I feel that he tailors his lesson plans just for my needs. He has helped me to achieve a lot and I will be forever grateful that we chose to work with him and not another teacher. Sean is personable, but professional. He always has insightful things to say, and will always deliver these insights constructively.

Private Viola Teacher

My teaching always begins with the fundamental concepts of violin playing. These include; familiarization with the instrument and terms associated, posture, basic theory and note reading, and rhythmic and pitch related exercises. After a student becomes confident with these basic concepts, we will cater a course towards a student's particular goals.

About Rahmaan

I first picked up the viola when I was 10 years old in sixth grade orchestra class, and I haven't put it down since. While most professional musicians were certain of their career paths from a young age, I had no plans to pursue music professionally, until an opportunity to perform at Carnegie Hall

I've completed about 1 year of lessons with Carolyn, and my experience has been exceptional.

Carolyn is insightful and encouraging. She knows when to offer critical feedback and when to offer positive feedback based on her student's temperament. She also paces progress based on the student's aptitude, too.

I'd recommend Carolyn for any beginning string musician without any hesitation.

Dr Carolyn is very patient & made every step of my beginning lesson enjoyable. I’m looking forward to my next lessons on the web with her!

Private Viola Teacher

I've been teaching viola for 2 years and my students have felt more prepared in their community and school orchestras. As students progress they will better understand scales, bow technique, and musical phrasing. I specialize in beginning technique, typically use Essential Elements books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: personalized exercise packets, a keyboard, and scores. Something different about me is that I offer students methods to begin composition.

Adult students are welcome.
For lessons, parents are welcome to sit in!

About Trinity

HI, I'm Trin! I'm excited to meet you on your journey with the viola! I've been teaching private lessons since 2019 and have loved helping my students read music (not just in alto clef) and understand fundamental music theory. I also believe in performing the viola like it is "an extension of you

I am a 13 year-old student that has played the viola for 4 years and Ms. Trinity had been the best viola teacher I’ve had so far. I feel like I have advanced so much in my playing during the short year that she has taught me. I am now doing things that I thought were really terrifying at first, such as double stops and shifting.
I find Ms. Trinity very supportive and friendly, so I would recommend her to any kind of younger audience that may have a fear of playing certain pieces or learning something seemingly intimidating. She also likes to listen to the student’s requests and feedback, letting the student have a choice in their learning experience.
I have also found her prices reasonable and affordable for anyone that is having trouble finding lessons that are not painful to your wallet.
Overall, I have had a pleasant experience with Ms. Trinity as a teacher and recommend her to anyone that wants to pick up the viola or just needs a little push to advance in the right direction.

We did online tonight per my request. Michael is so patient and encouraging and he answers my questions that are endless. I feel hopeful that I am learning the correct form and things I definitely would not pick up just trying to teach myself through the book. Thank you Michael!

I just completed my fifth lesson out of my 10 lesson package with Margaret. She is wonderful! Always exactly on time, provides clear instruction and is very encouraging and patient with beginners. I'm an adult who is just now learning to read music, and she makes it way less scary! Definitely recommend taking lessons with her.

"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."
