“… 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, Columbia 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. Students have the option of adding composition, folk violin, and improvisation to their main course of instruction.  For more information please email your inquiry to this address.

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 address and in the subject line indicate "Video Exchange Program"

Anabasis Red Viola ~ Piazzolla Tango Etude No. 3

 

After numerous 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!
