Very good teacher, our daughter likes her and is motivated to get better.

I learned piano with her. She is a good teacher.
Eva B.
Laura is an amazing teacher - I could see it right away - and my daughter really opened up to her. It seems, however that my daughter may not be ready to study the piano just yet. We bought a 5-lesson package, so we will see if that changes between now and then. Either way, Laura was a great choice for our first piano instructor!

I play violin for over forty years. First time I had a pleasure to listen Mr. Meloney playing violin I was very impressed so I asked if he can listen to one of my short violin piece. I realized, that he has a lot of knowledge in teaching. Mr. Steven is a genius violinist and professor.

"Fantastic Violin Teacher

Alexandra has been giving 30 minute violin lessons to my 7 year old for the last couple of months. She is extremely patient,polite, and professional. She always comes well prepared with a detailed lesson plan tailored to my daughters needs. She takes the time to communicate progress and always let me know when she will be out of town and when we can resume or schedule extra sessions. My daughter loves the lessons and her teacher. She is always happy when she knows that her lesson is coming up. It's exciting to see her progress and her confidence grow with each lesson. I highly recommend Alexandra as a teacher for your child"

"taking just the one course and I wanted to come back for more. She re-lit the inspiration to continue and want more practice and want more education. Being a beginner she tailored to me even with other students. I feel very comfortable and she goes out of her way to help those get it right even when they feel weak in the spirit about just starting. I would really recommend taking courses from her. Not only did I feel catered to, she also was very honest about her boundaries and what she was willing to do and put herself out there for. I am happy to have met this woman and look forward to taking private lessons to improve not my only my love for music but love for the violin."
