Ina Strings Studio Violin and Viola Lessons (Madison, WI)

Ina Strings Studio

Violin and Viola Lessons

Madison, WI

 The Ina Strings Studio offers Suzuki and traditional violin and viola lessons for students of all ages.

Lessons are available online, or in person at locations on the East and West sides of Madison.

Teaching Studio

I offer weekly individual lessons geared for each student's age, ability, and goals. Lessons are available at two locations in Madison, Wisconsin: on the east side on Richard St, and on the west side on Seybold Rd. I also provide online lessons on request. 


My approach to teaching is a unique blend of my own European and American education, mixed with principles of the Suzuki philosophy and Paul Rolland teaching. I draw upon many years of experience as a teacher and a performer to apply a variety of music and teaching tools that help each student achieve their best potential.


I am passionate about teaching, and feel that a friendly, personalized learning environment is important. My emphasis is on developing essential instrumental skills, such as proper posture, technique, beautiful tone, and musicianship. The ultimate goal is for each student to become not only a good musician but also a well-rounded person by learning character-building skills including discipline, time management, independent thinking, patience, and self-esteem.
