Teaching and Community Engagement

Violist and educator Márta H. Lambert has over 10 years of experience teaching a variety of musical skills both on and off the instrument.


Márta's teaching methods draw from a blend of educational experiences that range from engaging beginner students through an integrated learning of the Suzuki Method, coaching pre-college level musicians at the Academy for Chamber Music at Seattle Chamber Music Society, and previously serving as a Teaching Fellow of Music Theory and Ear Training at The Juilliard School. Márta's skill and passionate commitment to teaching and helping students achieve their goals in music has earned her faculty positions at the Academy for Chamber Music at Seattle Chamber Music Society, Kinhaven Music School, Suzuki on the Island (SOTI), and the Eisman Center for Preparatory Studies in Music (ECPSM) at Queens College, where she not only taught private lessons but coached chamber music, led the preparatory orchestra, and taught conservatory musicianship. Márta's private students have earned entry into summer music programs including Fontainebleu Music Festival, Greenwood Music Camp, Kinhaven Music School, Bowdoin International Music Festival, and Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival, among others. 

As the Director of Education and Community Engagement at Seattle Chamber Music Society, Márta has the opportunity to lead the Academy for Chamber Music and to cultivate projects that aim to make classical music, particularly chamber music, more accessible. relatable, and enjoyable for all audiences. Prior to moving to Seattle in 2024, Lambert participated in a number of community music programs including Juilliard's Morse Fellowship and Yale University's Music in Schools Program, and pursued additional projects including a 10-week solo recital series for patients in New York Presbyterian Hospital. The necessity to maintain motivation and stay involved in the community during the pandemic prompted a number of online initiatives including orchestra workshops and music history classes for her students at ECPSM, and a collaboration with the United Nations Chamber Music Society, which premiered works, and raised awareness for major crises around the globe.

Márta's nurturing teaching style and her commitment to excellence drives her passion to cultivate a supportive teaching environment for young instrumentalists to discover their individual potential through musical studies.

"It is my privilege to study under the guidance of an exceptional viola teacher, Marta Lambert, who has transformed my musical journey. From the first moment I met her, I was awed by her remarkable talent and dedication to the art of viola playing. Not only does she exhibit unparalleled musicality and technique in her own playing, but she also imparts these skills with a teaching style that is both inspiring and effective.

Under Marta’s tutelage, I have not only improved my technical skills on the viola but have also gained a deeper understanding and appreciation for the instrument. She has a way of explaining concepts and techniques that resonate with me, allowing me to grasp them with clarity and apply them in my playing. Her passion for the viola is infectious, and I have found myself delving into the nuances of viola playing with newfound enthusiasm and curiosity. I am immensely grateful to have the opportunity to study with such a talented and inspiring viola teacher. Her expertise, passion, and dedication have been instrumental in my growth as a violist, and I will always hold her in highest regard as both a mentor and a musician."
