I’ve been playing the viola for about 5 years having learnt the violin prior to switching instruments. I haven’t had any formal viola lessons before this year, and as the viola is not as popular an instrument as the violin or cello, finding a viola teacher proved difficult, and finding a GOOD viola teacher was almost impossible. As an adult with autism, just finding a teacher who could connect with me on my wavelength is a challenging task, and I’ve gone through numerous music teachers in the past, and many could not break down the barrier that is autism. On meeting Mr Yeo, my worries dissipated. Mr Yeo is very patient and encouraging during lessons, and explains things in a way that is both easy to grasp and fun! Mr Yeo also further motivates me in my practice by giving me feedback on video recordings of my practice sessions when I send them to him so that I can make the most out of my viola practice. Since starting viola lessons, I’ve improved by leaps and bounds. I’ve only had 4 adult viola lessons with him and yet I feel like I’ve had many more because of my progress. I am looking forward to learning more from him!
