My daughters first online lessons and a wonderful experience! Ruben is very engaging, friendly and knowledgeable. He is easy to contact, accommodating and quick to respond to questions. Would highly recommend!

My 9-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son have been taking uke lessons for 3 weeks now and they really enjoy Ruben's style of teaching; so do we. He provides a great combination of making it fun while also really teaching them the foundations of music. They are already reading and writing some music and they enjoy doing their music homework. Most important, they are having fun at the lessons and while practicing at home.

I have been teaching the violin/fiddle to children and adults for 9 years. My speciality is in teaching young children and youth. I do teach methods that are appropriate to their level, whether they are beginners or have been playing for a while. I love teaching adult beginners as well, we all need a good start with a firm technique base for left and right areas (violin and bow) of playing the violin. I teach from the concept of Musicianship: warm ups to prevent injury, correct techniques for playing, and using theory books and violin method books that are creative and easy to follow and understand, both for children and adults. I teach note-reading as well as aural learning because a student, young or older, needs both music notation and ear training to gain the best possible perspective on learning this instrument and having fun. As a teacher, I love being creative in lessons, it's very important and helps the student to assimilate the techniques and pieces so they can move ...

Diane is an amazing teacher!! My two daughters (8 and 12yrs old) have been taking lessons from Diane for over 2 years and they love her lessons! Diane is very kind-hearted, very positive, and patient. They have a great violin rental and purchasing program with a very reasonable price and her husband as a professional luthier, setting up all the instruments for us and whenever the kids need to switch a violin size, they take care of it. We are very happy with Diane and it's hard to find a teacher like her.
Nancy
Was my first violin lesson today, and Diane is very thorough and easy to follow. She is excited about the violin and not just a teacher so I already know that I have a great teacher. I am so excited about my journey with her!
Amber A.
Diane is a fabulous teacher!! When my daughter wanted to start violin and fiddle I knew I would need to know something about violin to help her at home. So, Diane taught my 5 year old and me. Diane really has an amazing bond with my daughter and has truly become one of our family... She makes the lessons fun and engaging for my daughter... She takes a personal interest in her students and gears the lessons to their level. Diane is always willing to work with you when it comes to schedules as well, for example: summer time vacations.... I highly recommend Diane as an instructor. She knows her instrument, her theory, and how to convey the information to adults and small children. We have now been taking lessons for a couple of years and my daughter still looks forward to them and that is due to the investment that Diane has personally made in their relationship!

I believe that learning music is one of the greatest gifts that people can obtain and achieve in life, because if builds self-confidence, provide happiness to ourselves, and appreciate different cultures. Through singing, it has the power to touch the empathy of people through communication of words as singers deliver these texts within their sounding voice.

Having the talents in music is not predetermined whether you have them or you don’t, but I firmly believed that musical talent is a skill that can be learned and enriched. Through hard work and practice, I do agree that everyone can achieve these skills and become an exceptional musician. It is in my environment as a voice instructor to encourage and uplift my students through the very best of their capability by learning wide variety of songs while maintaining healthy vocal production throughout their instructions.

Through my previous mentors, I had received voice instructions with intense and thorough understanding of ...

"The teacher was knowledgeable about all aspects of sewing and was able to tell me how to finish off one of my projects that I brought with. It was a jacket and skirt. I needed help mostly with the jacket and mainly understanding the finishing instructions for the jacket. I sewed some in the hour during the lesson and then Terry showed me on the instructions what to do at home. She then asked me to bring a new sewing project that we could start together when I come in two weeks. I would highly recommend Terry to any level of sewer wanting lessons. She is also a very kind lady as well."

"My name is Ron. Last year my 10 y/o twins took weekly origami lessons from Haggit for a period of 6 months. They are both doing origami diligently since then, and proudly teach origamo to their classmates. Origami became a fun family activity in our house.
In march 2019 they invited their friends to celebrate an Origami birthday party. Haggit taught the guests how to fold several models. The children had a great time. They were all talking about their experience the following day at school. I highly recommend Haggit for teaching and leaading Origami parties"
