Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

Where do I begin. Kathleen is extremely patient with me and very encouraging. I have loved the violin for a long time. However, over the years I would get discouraged and quit. With Kathleen, I look forward to our sessions. She's very knowledgeable and I like that she will play along with me and send audio clips that reinforce the place where I struggle. I have learned so much in such a short period. She's a keeper! I'm truly blessed to have her in my (music) life. Thank you so much Kathleen.

"As a former professional musician with an undergrad in Music, my standards are pretty high when I'm selecting musicians to teach my kids. My son has been taking viola lessons with Regina for 2.5 years. She is professional but also down-to-earth and great to work with. My son, now an 8th grader, played a level 1 solo at the District and State ISSMA contests and earned a Gold at both levels--the only kid in his school to do so. We credit Regina for appropriately pushing him to be his best. You can be assured that when you choose Regina, you're choosing one of the very best teachers around."
