Learn To Play Viola or Violin

My studio is a place where children can learn in a fun, stress-free environment how to play the violin and/or viola. There is space in my studio for both young people and adults. It is my goal to make playing fun and long-lasting by tailoring the curriculum to each student. This includes various types of folk music, pop tunes, and classical Suzuki methods. For my older beginners, I love to encourage the student to find and request music that inspires them. Located in Boise, Idaho, I am an experienced teacher of elementary, middle school, and high school students, and will help them increase confidence in their instrumental and ensemble skills.

What are my students saying?

Both of my daughters learned to play Viola with Ms. Maria. She is great and patient with small and big kids, has a lot of teaching resources so the kids are engaged and interested during the class. We love that her students are encouraged to play in festival every year and she organizes her own winter and summer recitals.

My son started practicing violin with Maria at the age of five. She leads innovative classes and is patient, fun, and intuitive in her process. I highly recommend her as a teacher of music, she leads with passion and creativity and has an eye for perfection without being overbearing
