Matching you to a viola teacher


1. First up, we tend to be a bit choosy about the type of viola teacher we work with. Call us pernickety (don’t you love that word?) but we really do insist that every viola teacher we register meets a very high standard.

2. We get to know every viola teacher in the Stars & Catz network personally. It’s not that hard to do—we’ve found that the viola teacher is very likable breed! What’s more, it’s essential for us to know each viola teacher well, so that we understand their particular areas of expertise, their preferred methods of teaching, their own personal motivations, and more.

3. We get to know you, too. Before we think about matching you with a viola teacher, we take the time to find out exactly what you’re looking for from your viola lessons. These details act as important guides in helping us choose the viola teacher who best meets your needs.

4. Beginning your viola lessons! The first lesson is usually an exciting meeting, where rapport is established between you and your viola teacher. From here, you should be off to a flying start. We’ll get in touch with you after your lesson to find out how you went. If, for some reason, your first lesson is not satisfactory, we’ll step in to resolve any difficulties and make sure your viola lessons don’t miss a beat!
