Roger H.
He is very good with me. I'm not a very good student. I have bad habits and I'm overly sensitive to criticism, yet he has not made me feel bad at all about my playing if you want to call it that. I also have a short attention span and can't read music fluently. But his patience is much appreciated, and each week get a little better at it all. I recommend him to those trying their best to sound a little better.
Avery B.
It was really good information and I had a lot of fun.
Annie B.
I have been taking fiddle/violin lessons from Marc for a few months now, and it has been a great experience. He is very patient and keeps things fun by helping me learn pieces that I am interested in learning to play. I would highly recommend him for any instrument you are wanting to learn.

I have experience teaching a wide range of students from young to adult beginners, as well as advanced students preparing for music programs at the college level. I will tailor the lesson to fit each student's level and goals. I am classically trained with Masters of Music in violin performance from Rice University (2013) and Bachelors in Music in violin performance from Florida State University (2011), however, if your interest lies outside classical music, we can work on other genres of music as well! I am currently Assistant Concertmaster of Houston Ballet Orchestra since 2014, and perform frequently with Houston Grand Opera and work as a substitute musician for Houston Symphony. I have over 10 years teaching experience of private lessons in both violin and viola. I have also worked as a chamber coach and sectional coach for Houston Youth Symphony for the past 5 years. I am trying to create more of an online teaching presence with the current situation with the corona virus and ...

I wish I could say many things but one thing I would love to share is that Ms. Rachel is the beat teacher anyone could ask for she really shows she cares, tells you your mistake, and Ms. Rachel helps even when it’s already good she tries to make it great not just good!!
Charlotte
I have been taking lessons from Rachel for almost two years. She usually teaches me in her home but we now do online lessons. Rachel helps me with my middle school orchestra pieces and we also follow the Suzuki series and music theory. She is patient and understands how to help me become a better violin player.

She likes to focus on the positive and is never negative. She’s always supportive and always takes time away to help me no matter what.

Great teacher, very helpful and patient. Can't recommend him enough!

Dan is a fantastic teacher! I studied with him when I was younger and returned after 13 years or so. He is very flexible and will tailor the lesson to your individual needs. Dan is also very perceptive and thorough in his approach, which really helps fine tune your playing. Highly recommend!
Jessica
Dan puts a big emphasis on technique and it will likely make for a better player in the long run. Lessons have lots of examples and he checks for understanding frequently.

"Keiko is a skilled and thorough teacher. She knows how to pinpoint what a student needs and break it down to approach in a practical way. She can talk inspirationally and knowledgeably about the musicality of a piece, but then will show the technique to achieve it. She has high standards yet puts one at ease with her care, attentiveness and warmth."

I am greatly pleased with the progress I have consistently made in playing the violin through Jonathan’s help. Jonathan has helped me to improve my bowing, string crossing, intonation, rhythm, musicality, and playing 3 octave scales, arpeggios, etudes, Suzuki selections, and classical orchestral music. It is always very clear what to work on during the week."

"I recently start to learn Violin with Jonathan and learn a lot more than what I was expected! I was a little bit disappointed because I heard it's late to start violin in my age but since I start with Jonathan, he always been helpful and encourage me.

He's very knowledgeable and perfectly patient. He has the ability to listen and understand where I am in my learning curve and adjust his lessons to my skill level which I love about him.
Not only he knows his stuff and makes his teaching personal to your needs, but he also has a way to make you feel successful even when you are struggling. I always feel better about my playing when I leave his class.
What I like about his teaching style most; he hands you a key to learning more rapidly. I think this is the best kind of teach that you can find.

For these reasons I highly recommend him and I truly appreciate his time, patient, and knowledge.

I wish one day come to I play like him; clean, easy and professional :-) !"
