About

Lisa has a Bachelor's of Viola Performance from Brigham Young University, where she studied primarily with Dr. Claudine Bigelow, Dr. LeeAnn Morgan, and Scott Lewis of the Utah Symphony. The influence of BYU's Primrose International Viola Archive, the world's largest collection of viola music and memorabilia, allowed her to expand her repertoire to include little known music such as the Primrose scale method. Lisa has had numerous performance opportunities across the country, including at Carnegie Hall and especially loves viola solo, quartet, and chamber music. She has also been a student of the piano for nearly 25 years--competing, performing, and ultimately instructing youth of all ages.

Lisa has been teaching viola and piano for almost 15 years, beginning with the co-founding of a non-profit program at her local high school teaching small group lessons to low-income elementary students, and co-managing a free piano class for ESL students at a local church.  Her experience spans over a decade of private instruction for students of all ages and levels. She is well-versed in multiple methods such as Galamian, Flesch, Auer, Primrose, Kreutzer and more, and is constantly studying new teaching styles.

Lisa gears instruction to the needs of the student. Although teaching primarily classical style, many students like to supplement with more modern music, and Lisa is adept at choosing appropriate solos and exercises to support techniques in any genre. Lisa believes music lessons should be fun and tries to help students feel at ease and  gain confidence in their abilities.
