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.
JoAnn C.
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!

"Kelvin is an awesome teacher. I wanted to learn to play by ear, because that's the way I learned to play the guitar. I had been looking for a teacher for several weeks, and after contacting several teachers, most of them didn't respond. The one who did respond refused to teach me without sheet music. I was about to give up the whole idea of playing, but Kelvin took me on and has developed a method of teaching me without the burden of having to learn to read sheet music. My playing has improved with only four lessons! I highly recommend him as a teacher!"

"Our daughter had her first lesson yesterday and loved it and Mikaela. She said it was the best day ever and can't wait for her next lesson next week! Mikaela obviously has experience teaching children and make our daughter feel at ease and comfortable. Most of the first lesson seemed to be focused on proper instrument and handling, which makes sense. It can take years to undo poor posture and position if not begun correctly. Mikaela explained what she was doing and why, and made sure our daughter understood everything as she went along. Thank you for a first great experience!"

"Best Violin Teacher Ever!

I'm currently having violin classes with Kan for half a year right now, and so far I think she is the best violin teacher I have ever met. With a variety of effective teaching techniques, Kan can always help me to improve my violin skills in many ways. She teaches me a lot of advanced finger exercises which is really helpful and efficient. Another amazing thing of her is that she can ALWAYS notice what your problem is and tell you right away so that you will no longer make that mistake any more. As an adult learner, She is SUPER patient with me and pays a lot of attention to my questions. Otherwise, she is a professional violinist and so knowledgeable and helpful as a great teacher. I'm so happy to have a class with her every week and will definitely recommend her to my friends who wants learn violin!"

"This teacher has tons of experience teaching youth, and we recommend him highly. My kids just love their lessons, even during the summer months. It is difficult to find a truly caring mentor who doesn't cancel lessons due to other commitments, but this teacher really cares about getting things "done" in his music studio. Very friendly and encouraging."

"Rebekah is a thorough and patient violin teacher. When my 7 year old, daughter asked to learn the violin, I was not sure if she had enough of a capacity to focus, which is necessary for playing the violin. Under Rebekah's instruction, she has flourished; she is playing scales, songs, and reading music. After each session, Rebekah reviews with me the homework she has assigned to my daughter. Thanks to Rebekah, my daughter is developing a real appreciation for music, while enjoying the learning process. I highly recommend Rebekah!"
