Great violin teacher, good at explaining, and has good rapport with my teen son.

I have been enjoying lessons with Ryan a lot. He is great with giving encouragement, pointing out blind spots. Working with him is not just learning the music and instrument, it's learning about yourself and the way you relate to music.

I am very passionate about technique, and so I make sure each student is set up for success by encouraging good posture and both left and right hand placements. I believe scales are vital, so each of my students does a variety of scales and rhythm exercises to ensure they are confident in counting as well as note accuracy and intonation. My mother is a piano teacher, so I grew up loving music, and in turn, falling in love with the idea of teaching! I care deeply about each student and want to ensure that they walk away from each lesson with new knowledge, whilst learning to love the violin and music in general!

Excellent Teacher

I am an older student and I started to learn to play the piano more than a year ago under a different teacher. I started with Eugene about 4 months ago. I was struggling with the piano previously. But after just 2 lessons with Eugene, I found myself playing confidently. Eugene explains so clearly and everything makes sense to me now. I enjoy practicing everyday now. He is excellent teacher, patient, and very professional. He is always on time.

"It's a blaze to work with Luther! He identified my problem very quickly and provided concrete advices on improving the sound. His understanding on how beautiful sound is made is very clear and systematic. There are so many dimensions in the sound making for violin but he always breaks it down and works on each individual part of my postures and bowing. My sound is now much fuller than before! He also not only teaches violin but also how to think about music in general. I feel like I am constantly critically thinking on how I can experiment with each phrase after I take lessons with Luther. I will highly recommend Luther if you want to find a violin teacher!"

Alethia is very professional. I have been thoroughly impressed with her knowledge of the instrument / theory. Alethia will surely be my violin teacher for a long time. I would strongly recommend her to anybody."

"Hi, Three of our children took violin lessons with Cara Arnold for 4-5 years. She was an amazing violin teacher. She understood how to tailor her lessons to each individual child and was adept at finding music pieces that were challenging but also fun for the kids to learn. She has an enthusiasm for violin that she shared with our children and was always encouraging to them- but was also able to toe the line or ask for more when needed. I highly recommend her as a violin teacher. She is thoroughly knowledgeable in her subject and has years of experience with all ages. She also completely enjoys her job and it shows."
