Lessons are fun. My philosophy is that students should have music in their lives and benefit from the lessons they take now for years to come. Learning to play a musical instrument will help students with math skills, study habits, and develop a skill that will last for a lifetime.

After 3 months students will understand the fundamentals of their string instrument, know how to care for their instrument, warm up properly, be able to read and play introductory passages. After 6 months the student will have learned basic music theory, how to read music, and have advanced through playing multiple songs.

About Betsy

Music is the biggest passion in my life. I love being able to share that gift with my students, and look forward to their progress as much as my own. I continue to grow and develop as a musician, and love connecting with people through music. My students all learn to love and appreciate music, t

Whether you're a beginner looking to explore a new instrument, or a young professional preparing for an orchestral or college audition, I'm eager to share my passion of music and teaching experience with you. Throughout my teaching and performing career, I have been highly successful at helping students bring out the very best they can offer. Many of my students got accepted to study at major universities and music conservatories, and/or earned positions at orchestras or teaching institutions.

I'm strict and have very high expectations, but I was also praised for being encouraging and supportive. I strongly believe in the power of music, and the many benefits of learning a musical instrument.

Ferenc is an excellent instructor! He is patient and explains things well, and is very nice to boot!
Victoria L.
My daughter loves Mr Ferenc, he is so kind, patient and thorough, and works with our limited schedule. As a former violin player myself, (albeit 22 years ago) I really appreciate how exacting his standards are for form and posture and I wish my early instructors had been of his caliber.
Ted
Ferenc is an incredibly talented violinist and mentor, who used to be a violin professor before coming to Vegas. Besides being knowledgeable, he is also very patient with kids (being a parent himself). He might travel to the student's location, but I don't know for sure.

I teach from the earliest beginner through adult. My violin students are currently performing for different schools and ensembles. When students are performing with orchestras, much time is spent working on that music as well as their regular music.

"I highly recommend Jill Good as a violin teacher

Taking violin classes with Jill Good has been a great experience for me. I wanted to learn how to play violin at the age of 26, but I was afraid of the difficulty. With her this was not a problem, she was an amazing teacher and has been able to teach me from the very beginner level. In one year I learnt much more than I even expected, I feel as if I have made a lot of progress. She also has the ability to connect with her students and her talent at teaching is truly superior, which makes it even more enjoyable to go to class and play violin around her! She is extremely dedicated and experienced and the most important thing is that she is also very patient, at least with me!
I admire her for her joy and love for violin, another of the things I am very thankful from her is that she came with me to the store and helped me to chose the right violin to buy and now I am so happy with my violin."

"I’ve had the opportunity to interact with Sofia in different capacities over a number of years. I have seen her flourish as a performer, having attended a number of her soloist and orchestral events. At the same time, it has been exciting to see how she very effectively leverages her passion and technical violin skills with her natural gift for teaching. She’s able to build a true rapport with her students by being involved and really caring about their self confidence and growth as players and performers."

Elicia is very good at being able to keep an eye and ear on how you're playing and giving you advice at how to play better or what to correct. She's also very flexible in how she teaches - whether it's more streamlined or casual lessons, she helps your improve either way."
