Violin Lessons with Emma Method
Emma Method, violin and viola, has been teaching both instruments for six years, working with beginning and intermediate musicians of all ages. Inspired by the famous pedagogue Karen Tuttle, Emma teaches with a focus of relaxation, total body integration, and breathing, as well as other aspects from Tuttle’s “Coordination Technique”. The choice of materials, while always including a mix of technique and repertoire, is developed alongside the student, as teaching should always be a highly individualized process. She is currently completing her degree in viola performance at Temple University.
As a violist, Emma has performed with the Temple University Concert Orchestra as principal violist, and the Grammy nominated Temple University Symphony Orchestra as a section violist, including concerts in the Kimmel Center and Alice Tully Hall. Previously, she was the principal violist in the Stretto Chamber Orchestra, touring with them through Eastern Europe in 2014. Additionally, Emma worked and performed at the Blue Mountain Chamber Music Festival, as well as volunteering at the associated day camp. Currently, she studies with Kerri Ryan, associate principal of the Philadelphia Orchestra, and has previously studied with the respected violinists Genaro Medina and Robert Vieira.
