One of the most important ways that I support my students is by creating a positive learning environment. In my class, I encourage students to ask questions, feel confident in their potential, and enjoy the process of learning. The teaching techniques that I use are adapted from the Self-Determination Theory by Deci and Ryan and they are beneficial to student engagement and intrinsic motivation— both important factors for student success. I create an engaging learning environment by providing positive reinforcement, encouraging student autonomy, introducing manageable learning goals, and by providing positive constructive feedback. My goal with every class is to encourage authentic student engagement, develop their intrinsic motivation, increase their confidence, and to inspire students to want to learn more.
With 18 years of dedication to the viola, and earning a Master's of Music degree in viola performance, I teach my students the tools they need to achieve their individual goals.

Viola jokes are for losers... I think viola has one of the most gorgeous tone in the entire orchestra family. I can work on solo pieces as well as chamber music / orchestral excerpts of your choice.

I have had the pleasure of learning from Keiko for the last several months--she is a wonderful teacher and provides helpful tips on improving my technique and skill level. While I've always been interested in picking up the violin, working with her has sparked an even greater interest and drive to do better. I am certain anyone will benefit from and enjoy taking classes with Keiko!

Initially I was a complete beginner. I've been studying with Rob for a couple of months now. I think I'm making good progress and certainly a lot of that is Rob's doing. Very personable and flexible, he's really taught me a lot and is really good at teaching in a way that has me progressing steadily and not being overwhelmed by such a challenging instrument.
Jeff
great first lesson. Personable and informative.
Lin
Identified many of my errors right away, has given instruction on how to correct. Have noticed definite improvement each week, and given new skills each week to practice .(I'm not likely to pass this pattern in the near future!)

You will learn posture and note reading for the alto clef. You will be guided by me through method books and I will create supplemental materials to help you advance. You will play duets with me and develop playing skills. You will learn higher positions and learn to play in an orchestra to follow a conductor. You will learn how to articulate to make the viola stand out in an ensemble. I have been teaching viola for 5 years. My students win seats in school orchestras. I want to be your next instructor.

I learned a ton in my first lesson! Mark is very knowledgeable. He was able to break musical concepts down which made it easier to understand. He was very positive, which helped stay positive!

Mark is a fantastic piano teacher! He is patient and caring. He also has a unique way to help children remember important foundational elements of piano playing. I highly recommend!

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.

Viola:
A stringed instrument that is bowed or played with varying techniques. It is slightly larger than a violin and has a lower and deeper sound. Since the 18th century it has been the middle or alto voice of the violin family, between the violin (which is tuned a perfect fifth above) and the cello (which is tuned an octave below. The strings from low to high are generally tuned to C3, G3, D4, and A4. My lessons always start out with the basics! We start out by learning notes by plucking the strings and then the bow is soon incorporated. The goal is to eventually learn all the notes on the fretboard and also learning how to read and play chords. As the student progresses advanced techniques are introduced, music theory and learning how to solo.

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.
John J Conlon
Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC
Troy W.
Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

"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."
