Customizable lessons to meet your unique music goals!
Focuses for Viola could include... Notation / Sight Reading Duet & Ensemble Performance Solo/Improvising Composition Instrument Maintenance and so much more! Let's Play Music! Many people think that learning an instrument is a long and grueling process that takes years before being any fun, but this couldn't be any farther from the truth! Especially in this day and age with so many resources available, it does not have to take decades to reach a fun and satisfactory level of musicianship. What you are looking for is someone who can teach you what YOU want to know. My approach to music teaching is fully CUSTOMIZABLE. Instead of following a strict curriculum, every lesson is tailored specifically to your goals and interests. Not interested in reading notes? No problem. Only want to cover your favorite pop songs? You got it. Trying to write your own stuff? Let's focus there! Whatever makes music fun for you, you can count on me to help you find less work and more play. For every student I keep a shared Log of our lessons together documenting what we worked on, resources we used, and goals or practice ideas for the week. My inbox is always open for questions or ideas. As an active partner in your curriculum design, you gain valuable insight, not only on music, but on how to go about expanding your knowledge of it, even on your own. So what are you waiting for? Let's play some music! Have questions? I'm more than happy to help point you in the right direction. (whether or not that's with me)
About Avenira C.

What is it that sparks your unique musical expression? That is what I'm here to help you find and pursue. Maybe you want yourself, or your child, to know everything there is to know about music? Perhaps you'd like to learn to how to play your favorite songs? Or do you have your owns songs longing to be put into music? Maybe you're not sure and hope to find a teacher that can bend and flex with your interests? The honest truth today is that there are so many resources available for music study, I believe every single person who has an interest in music should be pursuing it. A plethora of Websites, Apps, Games and Video Courses offer truly quality content today, but knowing where to start and what to focus on can be overwhelming! This is where I come in. I conduct lessons as a trusty musical guide, someone who knows various approaches of music learning that can show or help forge a path that meets your own music goals. Lessons are fully customized together. I keep a shared Document of our lessons, detailing what we worked on, resources we used, reference material and practice ideas. As an active partner in your curriculum design, you gain valuable insight, not only in music education, but on how to go about expanding your knowledge of it, even on your own. I offer 30, 45 & 60 minute lessons to students of ALL AGES, online or in person from my home studio in Beverly Hills. ! Please note that my availability is filling up fast so I may not have any hours listed on the site, however if my profile is still available then I'm still accepting new students and am happy to coordinate a time that works for both of our schedules. I teach: theory, song writing, playing covers, jamming / solo / improvisation, notation, composition/songwriting, transcription(playing by ear), audition prep, duet / band / ensemble performance, family music, recording & computer music On: Piano, Guitar, Bass, Ukulele, Violin, Viola, Cello, Voice Across various genres and traditional lesson approaches. BIOGRAPHY Born into a family of singers and dancers music is more than a study or pass time to me, it is a language and a way of life. I believe everyone is a musician at heart.  Starting in my hometown of Portland, Oregon, my music career has taken me from Seattle to LA; and abroad to Haiti, Kenya, England, France. It is such an indescribable joy to connect with people around the world through music. I've performed in concert halls, symphonies, marching bands, pit orchestras, children's productions, restaurants, solo and ensemble competitions, even at Disneyland. In addition to my hobby of instrument maintenance, I've spent a number of years behind the scenes working stage production and harm reduction for many major events. I've been teaching friends and tutoring regularly since before graduating high school. This early start to teaching has lead me to a very dynamic approach to music education. I know what it takes to go from childhood lessons to lifelong music dreams. And this path is unique for everyone. Some people want to know all the math and science behind how music works, others just want to sing well to the radio. A lot of people don't always know. That's the beauty of musical arts, to listen and find that expression which speaks to you. What are you waiting for? Let's play some music. :) Have questions? Shoot me a message real quick. I'm more than happy to help point you in the right direction. (whether or not that's with me) ~~~ Life is music. There is rhythm in nature, tones of voice, being able to resonate with an idea. The most important aspects of our lives are governed by music; the birthday song, our ABCs, bedtime lullabies, graduations, parades, funerals, worship, movies... - life just wouldn't be the same without music.
