Amy has an incredible knowledge of violin & viola technique as well as music theory. She is able to explain things in an easy to understand way which has helped me to improve my abilities as a violist. My lessons are well structured and includes work with scales, technique exercises and learning a solo piece. I am an adult student who’s played for 13 years. Stopping in college, I picked it up again after a 10 year break. I am impressed with how much I’ve grown in the two years I’ve taken private lessons from Amy. We’ve been able to expand upon skills already learned, as well as improving other techniques. I would highly recommend her as a teacher for any age and skill level.
