Samuel is very patient; he has a great personality and well prepared for my kid's class. I'd highly recommend Samuel.
Emma
Sam is great with my 10 year old daughter. He is easy going and makes the flute lessons fun and my daughter enjoys her weekly hour lesson. We let Sam know what our goals were and he has created a plan accordingly.

Sam can do both in-home and online lessons. The in-home lessons are great, no need to travel.

Overall Sam is a great teach and very affordable.

Lessons are tailored to each student depending on what they would like to learn, and where they want to take their playing. I have fun playing violin and I want you to as well!

Every student is unique, so I will tailor the lessons to you and make it fun! I'm passing on to you the training I received from the very best master teachers of the violin. Stringed instruments are challenging, but I believe in enjoying making music at every level, while establishing a strong foundation in good technique. For learning fundamentals of music theory and ear training, we will play various rhythm and improvisational games. I have extensive background in European classical music, and I've also done quite a bit of improvisation, some fiddling, and electric violin and viola. Whether you want to be the next Joshua Bell or the next Lindsey Stirling, I can help you improve your playing. I will help you sing, dance and tell a story through your violin or viola.

About Gloria

Born into a musical family in 1966, I have extensive performance experience as a classical violinist and violist, and I've been composing my own music since 2000. I am very grateful to have studied with some of the finest teachers of violin, viola and chamber music, and I graduated in 1990 from th

Gloria has been a wonderful and inspiring teacher over a period of very formative years for me as a violinist. We first worked together for all 4 years of my undergraduate violin performance degree at Mills College from 2010-14, and Gloria helped me develop a lasting appreciation for listening deeply and developing focus for small details. We worked together on everything from solo Bach and Hindemith sonatas to concertos, chamber music, and orchestral excerpts. She has been a lasting influence in my life as a musician, and I will continue to return for musical and creative advice over the years even when I live far away.

I have been studying Broadway singers for years. I have been a Musical Theatre performer for years and I am still studying singing, acting and dancing. I am still young and know what it feels to want to better yourself everyday, so I can relate to most learning students. I put a lot of importance to vocal training, technique and warm-ups.

"I love my lessons with Andree-Ann! At first, I was a bit apprehensive about taking online piano lessons, but honestly she's helped me so much and I would highly recommend her. I'm preparing for RCM exams in Toronto, and I'm hoping to take level 9 this summer. At this point, I'm not a beginner anymore so I mostly need help with musicality, phrasing, and interpretation, all things that Andree-Ann has been super helpful with! She is a great teacher who expects you to work as hard as she does when she's teaching."

She then guided my lesson practice toward those goals, while at the same time making sure I was getting the underlying foundational principles to build upon.
