I believe that students can only learn properly in the right atmosphere, with an enthusiastic, motivated instructor. If the experience is not fun the student will not excel in what they do. I believe the students should periodically have a chance to show what they are learning by performing in recitals with others.

JACK IS TERRIFIC!

I wish we had found Jack years ago. We hired Jack specifically to help my daughter prepare for an audition. The audition was a success! Jack's approach to teaching is no nonsense and precise, but he has a warm and gentle way about him that motivated my daughter in a way that others haven't. Aside from his teaching ability, I was pleasantly surprised with Jack's sense of urgency and flexibility in responding to special scheduling needs. This is the first time I have been inspired to write an on-line testimony. I hope it helps other students discover Jack's tutoring.

If I looked for a million years I could not have found a better instructor than Jack. He is a peach. I am an older student with Osteoarthritis and I'm hoping that violin will both help avoid Altzheimer's and exercise and stretch the fingers. Jack is sympathetic to my needs and is helping in any way possible. I always look forward to Jack and his sunny personality and expertise. I'm sure that I have reached the epitome of "difficult students", but Jack is always patient and pleasant. He is a true professional in every sense.

Jack is a great teacher! He teaches well and professionally. He picked out the right text books for the lesson which I think very importance. My girls piano skills improve significantly. He also makes it fun to learn so the girls love it. Highly recommend him to everyone.

I do not use one single method when I teach. Depending on the student, I usually combine Suzuki and Traditional methods.

I believe in the individual's music experience! I believe in teaching strong technique, no matter what style of music is played. As technique is developed, I enjoy helping my students embrace their individual music interests, be it hip hop, jazz, classical, fiddling, tango, or creating their own styles and compositions!

The way of her teaching was so attractive

We miss her a lot but great fortune for

I never had a tutor before, so it was difficult for me to choose from the wide arrange of tutors there are. But I think Dan was the right choice. He's very professional and goes far and beyond to help his students understand how certain things are when playing the violin. I would definitely recommend Dan to anyone looking for a violin tutor.

Dan worked wonderfully with our 9 year old son who has trouble focusing. The structure of the lessons was well suited to his needs. Dan was understanding of our son's difficulties. I would highly recommend Dan in terms of patience, expertise, and being able to adapt to the needs of each student.

I initially began watching my father teach hundreds of students
suzuki violin in Monterey, CA in the 1980's. I began really learning the
instrument in college in order to receive my teacher certification in
public-school music teaching. MA in Mus Ed. Learn bow technique,
pizzicato, care of the violin. Let's play duets!

Concetta has a lot of excellent suggestions for improving singing performance. The typed notes she sends after each lesson were a tremendous asset as well. In only five lessons, she improved my daughters stage presence and taught her how to engage an audience. We were always short term clients, but Concetta more than met our goals and expectations. I would very much recommend her for any level of voice and performance. Excellent teacher

The violin is one of the most empowering musical instruments to learn, and has frequently been the subject of many music research studies. It has been found that those who learn to play the violin have also benefited in other areas of their lives.
