|Phillip Serna has been teaching viola da gamba for over a decade now – working with a variety of ages in private instruction & group settings. Private instruction lays a strong foundation for building technique, listening skills and confidence – on any instrument. Each and every student is unique with their own set of strengths, weaknesses & diverse skill-sets. Phillip endeavors to instill a positive sense of musical professionalism, responsibility, a strong work ethic, and personal integrity.Studying music can positively affect the development & retention of cognitive skills, build confidence, self-discipline, self-reliance & expands creative thinking. |
Lessons can vary from 30 minutes, 45 minutes to 60 minutes, depending on the needs of the student. Some students sometimes benefit from a longer session. He offers a variety of scheduling options & pricing for every budget & interest level. Due to the upheaval in 2020 of the Coronavirus Pandemic, Phillip has set up a new online scheduling portal for private instruction utilizing the Zoom video conferencing platform so that wherever you are in the world, you can always have your instruction brought to you in the comfort & safety of your own home.
Bonus – Included with private viola da gamba instruction is a free subscription to Consorts-Minus-One, Phillip Serna’s high-quality music-minus-one recordings of viol consort music – yours for the duration of instruction. Email Phillip Serna for more information.
