    We loved our trial lesson with Dr. Walterman and will be continuing with lessons. She was very knowledgeable and had a positive manner of communicating.

    Hailey Walterman is one of--if not the--best viola teachers Ive had, including as a music major in college. Ive been working with her for nearly 1.5 years via Zoom as an adult getting back into music, and Ive been able to make so much progress in a short span of time thanks to her. Hailey knows her instruments inside and out, and she adapts our lessons to my specific needs, versus a one-size-fits-all approach. Shes very adept at identifying technique issues AND providing clear, actionable solutions to address them. I always leave my lessons knowing exactly what I need to work on and how. Most importantly, Hailey truly cares about her students and developing our unique voices as musicians. She is patient, encouraging, and very professional--and my viola lessons with her have become a joy for me. I highly recommend Hailey.

    Hailey has been my daughter’s teacher for the last five years. She’s motivating, insightful, and excellent at making techniques and repertoire accessible to a young student.
