No student learns the same way, or at the same pace. I help students find the fun in what they're learning while helping them excel. Thanks to this approach, many of my students have been seen in the front seats in their orchestra classes and received many awards including: Superior Ratings at UMEA's Region Solo and Ensemble, acceptance to All-State Orchestra, Superiors at local festivals. Not only is she compassionate and caring, but she gets excellent results.

I believe fundamentally that each student has a unique learning style and benefits from a tailored approach. I do not subscribe to a particular regimented program of study, rather I select the repertoire and etudes to match each student's needs. I believe in choosing both concert music and etudes to challenge individual deficits and work on skills that will apply broadly across the repertoire.

I have a background in both violin and viola and believe that many of the skills which are taught to young violinists are not addressed early enough with young violists. It is my goal to make sure that young violists develop strong technical facility that enables them to develop into mature musicians with ease.

About Joshua

I am a professional orchestral violist and recording artist based in Long Beach, California. However, I am currently living in Denver, Colorado. For the past two seasons, I have primarily served as the assistant principal violist of the Pacific Symphony, while enjoying a flourishing freelance career

First lesson, while a bit glitchy with the lessons thing, the instructor adjusted while we figure out next time. My son really liked working with Josh, and is looking forward to more.

I have put my daughter in singing classes with many different teachers but none were as spectacular as Mary. She is in love with these classes and all the technique being taught in them, and I've noticed a lot of progress in her singing plus confidence in her ability. I sadly cannot afford any more classes but recommend Mary whole-heartedly to anyone that really wants to advance as a singer and have serious improvement.

Mary is an excellent violin teacher. She has a firm yet kind approach with an effective method in teaching a challenging instrument. She is punctual, reliable and passionate about teaching. In short, we had a wonderful experience and highly recommend Mary!

"My 13 year old granddaughter just finished her 1st year of viola at school in June 2014 and she wanted to take summer lessons to stay sharp. There were a lot of teachers available within a 10-15 minute drive, but after trying other teachers, we chose Mark (a 30 minute drive ) because, as others have commented, he is extremely patient and teaches by correcting, not criticizing. He simply has a gift for teaching. I have never regretted the extra drive. Once you've had a lesson with him, you won't want to go to anyone else."

"If you’re looking for a dedicated, knowledgeable and patient strings teacher, you will love Mrs. Heins. Both of my sons have been taking lessons from Mrs. Heins for several years (one for viola and one for cello). They have learned so much under her instruction, such as earning All-County and All-State honors. They also practice their live performance skills twice a year during informal musical concerts. Mrs. Heins also offers participation in the Royal Conservatory Music Development program, which can earn your child credit for college. She is a gem and should you choose her, you won’t be disappointed."

"Zachary is astute, professional, clear in communication, and a compassionate and effective teacher. I have had violin, cello, and viola instructors for my children for 15 years, and Zachary is among the best. There are a few things you look for in an instructor:
1. That they make an honest assessment.
2. That they make a plan, communicate it to the student, and stick to it.
3. That they work with what the student brings to the lesson in terms of skill.

Zachary took my daughter in quickly, was able to assess where she was and put together an effective plan for her. I noticed the improvement immediately and my daughter was inspired to practice.

Highly recommended."
