Learn viola from an experienced, professional, and motivated teacher.
Lessons are tailored to fit each individual student's ability and goals. I believe in challenging students while maintaining a supportive and encouraging environment. Lessons will cover music theory, technique, and solo pieces. The goal is to develop in each student the specific skills needed to play a string instrument as well as to nurture an understanding and love for music.

After the first lesson we knew that Leah was the best instructor our son (11 years old) ever had. Within a week, his sound improved dramatically and he was practicing much more productively. She also pointed us to some great youth orchestra opportunities. We strongly recommend Leah!

Leah is a great teacher and makes lessons enjoyable. She made it easy to understand what changes I need to make to improve my technique. She gave me reasonable goals for my violin practice in the coming week. I really like her teaching methods and style. I look forward to our next session together.
