My son has loved taking lessons with Linda. She is setting just the right pace with him. She is flexible given his strengths and weaknesses. He was genuinely disappointed when I told him he couldn't go to lessons this week because of a family commitment. Can't recommend highly enough!
Janet P.
very comfortable and satisfying first lesson.
JoAnn C.
Linda was great! As an adult beginner with the cello she made the lesson enjoyable and easy to follow. She adjusted quickly for where I knew a little and where I knew nothing. Highly recommend her!

I have been playing the violin for 18 years and teaching for 10 years. My curriculum includes a heavy emphasis on sound quality and correct, relaxed technique, followed by musicality and a well rounded music education. My goal is for students to be well versed not only in how to play violin, but also be knowledgeable in music history and theory. I believe that students should enjoy their music lessons while utilizing their individual learning style.

My violin students learn both classical and contemporary genres- I think it is important to have exposure to both! While focusing on the basics of posture, hand technique (right and left) and vibrato, my students will see improvement in weeks with the proper practice technique.

I have a tough time learning but Miss Jess explained everything in a way where I was able to actually understand. She is an INCREDIBLE instructor and I'm so blessed to be able to learn piano with her. She's one of the most patient teachers I've ever worked with and didn't make me feel like I was unteachable like people have in the past. If you're even debating yes or no, just pull the trigger and go learn with her!! I'm so thankful

Miss Jess taught our kids for 2 years, and we loved her lessons! She moved away from where we live and we miss her dearly. She is a wonderful teacher and we highly recommend her!

I earned a Bachelors in Music Performance at New Jersey City University where I had the privilege to study with professional musicians from the Metropolitan Opera, The Juilliard School, Manhattan School of Music, The Seoul National Symphony, and countless other ensembles at the forefront of the industry.

"Great teacher!!

Anna is an outstanding teacher who really understands how to get through to a student! She places a lot of emphasis on physical aspects of violin technique such as relaxation, that often go unaddressed by most teachers, leading to future problems.

The most striking thing about Anna's pedagogical style is that she is truly passionate about bringing the music to life. She constantly emphasizes the emotional interpretation of the music, however simple the piece may be, and ensures that the student projects the right tonal quality and color to bring out these interpretations.

Working with her has been a great experience, and I always eagerly look forward to the next lesson!"
