“… the perfect person to
help you prepare for your solo appearance is Victoria Voronyansky. She is
a very experienced performer and one of the best viola teachers anyone
could have; her teaching experience, besides conservatory level students
and pre-college age, includes working with adult violists as well”
Heidi Castleman, Viola Professor, the Juilliard School
Victoria Voronyansky has taught at the Juilliard School,
Mannes College of
Music, Temple University's Boyer College of Music and Dance,
University, and the Perlman Music Program. Students she worked with have gone on
to major conservatories, chamber ensembles, and top orchestras in the United
States, Europe, South America and Asia. For an opportunity to work with Ms.
Voronyansky please take a look at the programs offered below.
Lessons: in Person and through Skype
Students who are a part of Ms. Voronyansky’s studio meet with her on a weekly
basis. In addition to lessons, students can also participate in pre-audition
classes, Chamber Music Groups, and Studio Concerts. During lessons primary
emphasis is placed on solo and ensemble repertoire, technical studies, and
orchestral music, with additional work on music theory and ear training.

to their main course of instruction. For more information please

Video Exchange Program (Long Distance and International Student)
The Video Exchange Program presents an opportunity for students in the United
States and abroad to work with Ms. Voronyansky through a combination of videos,
written materials, video conferencing sessions, and online Q&A sessions. Upon
submitting initial questionnaire and video each student enrolled in the program
receives detailed analysis of his or her technique, suggested course of study,
followed by individually crafted curriculum and customized technique improvement
guide. From this point students can submit videos of their assignments, and
receive video responses from Victoria with feedback, plus a regular schedule of
video conferencing and/or chat sessions is set up to enhance the students'
progress This is an excellent resource for conservatory level students,
professionals who are preparing for an audition or competition, those who are
recovering from injury, and students who would like to revise their playing
technique. For more details please
email your inquiry to this

requests from fellow Bratsche enthusiasts and some careful work with No.2
pencil, scanner, and various programs, I assembled a video of Piazzolla's
Tango Étude No. 3, with all my fingerings, bowings, and octave changes
marked and shown in the video. "Expressive liberties" were intentionally
left out of the scanned manuscript :) I welcome your feedback, questions,
and would love to see your video uploads of this fantastic piece!
