As Abbe' Dimnet once said, "Children have to be educated, but they have also to be left to educate themselves." I aim to teach my students how to sing through kinesthesia. This allows them to internalize what they are doing in the studio so they can practice it at home and be more successful. P

Ellen is excellent! She has listened to our daughter and helped her to learn several songs on the violin which is what she wanted. She is actually practicing almost daily! Ellen plays alongside her so she can get a feel for the notes and how they sound. I like the way she teaches. She encourages and praises our daughter all the time.

Luther stays where I’m at and then helps me go the next step. That is useful for consistent gradual progress without the frustrations of moving either too slow or too fast (I am a beginning tenor saxophone player). Nice interpersonal style, patient and easy going, while methodical.
Geoff K.
I think Luther is great. He works with my 10-year old son on piano, singing and even trumpet and violin as needed. My son has to work hard to progress, and Luther customizes the lesson plan for him and seems to understand him well. I'm really excited about them working together.

"Anna is an awesome instructor for my 12 year old daughter who is a beginner. Each lesson my daughter learns something new and progresses on the violin. Anna does a great job of teaching the basic techniques and not letting my daughter develop bad habits. Anna gives clear feedback: she praises what was done well and corrects what needs improvement. Anna encourages my daughter to excellence while making the lessons fun. My daughter loves violin lessons with Anna and looks forward to each lesson."

"This was our first lesson of this kind online. My daughter has taken lessons before and became bored and never wanted to practice. I see a whole new excitement in her! The lessons taught by Mallory were built perfectly for my daughters age level. I can tell that she has taken the time to make sure it's a good fit for the age of the person she is teaching. Everything from the words she used, the songs she taught her and the movements really kept her interested. I can't wait to see what is in store moving forward. I was worried she wouldn't get that one on one attention type of feel online, but it was just as if she was right there with her. She was also able to type the homework right on the screen for us. This was just so convenient. I love not having to leave the house on a school night."
