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.

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

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!!

I teach students to discover and utilize tools they already have in order to take their playing to the next level. As a Juilliard-trained musician, I know how important it is to never lose sight of why we love music in the first place. This looks different for everyone, and I believe that music lessons are about finding what students can apply from other areas of their life that will enrich their musical experience. As a kid and an adult, I've found that feeling inspired is the best way to motivate oneself!

Katie was exceptionally patient and encouraging with my five year old daughter. She was a major asset in teaching my daughter the basics of violin - including proper stance and note formation. I could not recommend her enough.
Michele
Katie was a wonderful violin teacher for my son (four years old at the time). Katie knew how to make learning music and the violin fun through games and various activities. She was attentive and patient, kind and encouraging. She worked with us to allow him to participate in the annual recital--she played a simple, beautiful song while he plucked an open string. She is reliable, accessible, and caring. Couldn't ask for a better, more qualified, and dynamic teacher than Katie to facilitate a positive musical experience a young child.
Michelle
I greatly enjoyed my violin lessons with Katie. She improved my violin technique, encouraged me to tackle challenging solo pieces, and helped me prepare for youth orchestra auditions. She also guided me in producing video recordings for my college applications. On top of that, she is extremely patient and cheerful. Katie is the best!

I just completed my fifth lesson out of my 10 lesson package with Margaret. She is wonderful! Always exactly on time, provides clear instruction and is very encouraging and patient with beginners. I'm an adult who is just now learning to read music, and she makes it way less scary! Definitely recommend taking lessons with her.

"I studied viola from 4th grade through college and have had many different teachers. I took a very long break from studying because it was getting to be too much like work and no fun.
Returning as an adult student was a tough decision for me, but Kendra has made it fun again! We've worked through some of my old bad habits that none of my previous teachers addressed and I can play without left hand pain for the first time in my life. It's amazing!

Kendra is patient and encouraging and has really helped me rediscover my joy and love of playing the viola. I can't recommend her enough!"
