Get to know Brian Anderson

Brian Anderson is a violin and viola teacher from Northern Virginia working towards a Master’s degree in viola at Stony Brook University under the direction of Matthew Lipman and Lawrence Dutton. A graduate of the Peabody Institute, where he studied with Choong-jin Chang and Victoria Chiang, Brian is a dedicated teacher and chamber musician, with a focus on both free, fresh interpretations of standard repertoire and diligent study of contemporary works. His teaching approach is based around helping students find intrinsic value in playing music by combining creativity with an intuitive and logical understanding of each concept.

His festival experience includes fellowships at Madeline Island Chamber Music, the Garth Newel Emerging Artists Program and the Renova Music Festival, in addition to three summers of prior study at the Eastern Music Festival. Brian has collaborated in chamber music with artists such as Andres Diaz, Isaac Melemed, and Judith Ingolfsson, and he has played in masterclasses with Kim Kashkashian, Ettore Causa, Cynthia Phelps, Misha Amory, and the American String Quartet, among others. In his spare time, Brian enjoys playing soccer, composing and arranging music, and learning jazz with his family.
