Viola lessons are geared toward student goals: better orchestra seating, youth orchestra auditions, coaching for chamber ensemble performances, college auditions, or simply to master the instrument. I'm fun and engaging, and make the lessons informative without being overly taxing.

Ms. Tasha's exceptional enthusiasm for music shines through in her playing and her unique teaching style. She teaches violin to my daughters and she is a great teacher who is very knowledgeable about the music world. Her lessons are engaging and helpful to move further; she communicates in a way that anyone can understand and does all she can to help them be successful. She teaches at a level that is appropriate for both my daughters and goes out of her way to help each one of them play and comprehend music better.
