Bachelor of Arts in Music from University of California Irvine
I am a violinist with 25+ years of teaching experience on violin in the Suzuki Method. Viola is my much loved second instrument.
I particularly enjoy playing Scottish fiddle on my viola.
Violas are measured in inches. For a beautiful sound, a viola should be at least 12 inches long (for a child). The viola is also wider and heavier than the violin. For this reason, I will take beginners as students from age 11 to adult on viola.
Violas are not all alike. It is highly recommended that you consult with your teacher or potential teacher before purchase.
