My name is Eliana. I am a Suzuki viola teacher, “traditional” viola teacher, and sometimes Professor of viola based in St. Louis. I love all things playing and teaching music and have been teaching viola (and sometimes violin) for over a decade but I have never blogged about it. . I’m originally from Louisville, Kentucky (Go Cards!) but I’ve also lived in Wisconsin and New York.
I’m hoping that this blog will serve as a place for me to share ideas for teaching the viola, and teaching in a Suzuki studio. I have also recently started a Teachers Pay Teachers Site where I have both free and reasonably priced downloadable resources for string teachers. One of the best things about being a teacher is that both the viola and Suzuki communities are chock full of sharing, encouraging, and all-together awesome people. I have benefited from the wisdom and expertise of others and I want to share the love. As Shinichi Suzuki said: “When love is deep, much can be accomplished”.
