More about our viola teachers:
I teach violin and viola. I began to play violin at the age of six and graduated from the Sobinov Saratov State Conservatory in 2005, actively performing in solo, chamber ensembles, and string quartet concerts. Among my awards are the Grand Prize in the Fourth Regional Goldenberg Violin Competition, stipend from the “Russian Performing Art” foundation, Diploma at the 5th Demidov International Violin Competition, and an award from the VI “Golden Talent.” In 2006, I was selected to join “Youth Symphonic Orchestra of CIS Countries” and through 2009 toured the cities of CIS, Europe, and USA under such conductors as Yury Simonov, Mark Gorenstein, and Vladimir Spivakov. In 2010 I was accepted into Artist Diploma Program at Temple University in Philadelphia and completed my Master of Music degree in violin performance (2014) in the class of Professor Schmieder. I am currently working toward an MM as a second major in viola. I currently play with Symphony in C and New Jersey Capital Philharmonic Orchestra. Read More About Akhmed

While in Georgia, I taught for the University of Georgia Community Music School and the Eugene Lee School of Music where I would teach privately, give group classes, and sectionals for the orchestra. I taylor my knowledge and experience as a musician to the individuality of the student. The student's musicality is my guide and I find importance in relaxed playing. Along with the teachings of great string players in history, I employ the Suzuki method and Gordon Music Learning Theory in my teaching. -Learn More About Carolina
