How Outschool Works
Don't see a time that works for you?
This class may be taken as either ongoing lessons or as short-term coaching for specific music. Learners will receive individual instruction from a violin/viola/cello teacher with over 25 years of teaching experience. Individual lessons are tailored to each student and their age, level, and learning style and often involve appropriately-leveled scales, technical studies, and repertoire, without losing sight of the fun of making music. I am happy to work with violinists and violists of any...
Learners will be expected to spend some time between lessons practicing. Exact assignments and time required depend on the learner.
Working instrument that is in tune (see videos listed below or message me for help) Bow and rosin For violin and viola: Something to serve as a shoulder rest. If you don't have an actual shoulder rest, a sponge or cloth with a rubber band may work For cello: Endpin strap/rock stop/something to keep the cello from slipping. A carpeted surface will work for this.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Learners should have an adult nearby to assist with the instrument if necessary, especially younger learners and those who are new to the instrument.
