Anastasia teaches viola, jazz, aural skills, and voice to students of all ages in Asheville, NC. For viola, she uses the Karen Tuttle Coordination approach. For voice, she uses fun, engaging, and relaxing games to free and expand the breath, with jazz standards, pop songs, and folk songs as a basis for learning.
For all instruments, she incorporates exercises and activities to train body awareness. Her teaching philosophy blends comfort, technique, critical thinking, problem solving, musical enrichment, and fun. She emphasizes ear training and musical vocabulary development regardless of level and genre.
