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.

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!

Very knowledgeable and experienced in not just playing the violin but teaching it as well.
Chris T.
At the age of 58 I decided to start taking violin lessons for 2 reasons, enjoyment of playing music and exercise my brain. I found Lucy K on the takelessons.com website and she was able to accommodate my request for lessons in my home on a Sunday. Starting from scratch, she taught me the fundamentals of playing and I have made some progress over the last 8 months. She is patient with me yet will push me along and at time bring me out of my comfort zone, which is good. She has the ability and training to teach students from early age to older adults like me. In addition, she also teaches piano, which my wife started lessons with Lucy K at the same time I started violin. She has my recommendation if you have interest in either violin or piano.

My little one of 9 has a bad attention span and Jessica is very patient with him. She uses games and such to keep him interested; he loves the Monkey game! He recently played at the studio recital and did so well. I'm sooo proud of my little one.

p.s. thanks for rescheduling lessons Ms. Jessica :)"

"Mrs. Beckley has taught my daughter how to play the violin for several months learning notes, chords, and beginners' techniques. She is always patient as she directs my daughter's lessons. Every week she gives assignments to be practiced before the next lesson. Mrs. Beckley always says, "You are welcome to suggest music that you would like to learn instead of the assigned music piece that I assign for practice."

She said that if we have trouble finding sheet music, she will write it out for my daughter to learn. Mrs. Beckley is a very skilled instructor, and my daughter agrees that she gives great direction with skilled consistency."

You Know You’re a Violin Player When…

Let’s face it; not everyone can be a violin player. It takes a certain individual to master such a complex instrument that requires immense dedication and concentration. From rough finger tips to grueling practice sessions, violin players are challenged both physically and mentally whenever they step onto the stage. Whether you’ve just started taking violin lessons or you’re a seasoned violin player, chances are you can relate to more than one of the following things… 1. Ever …
