She is outstanding. I am very impressed with her teaching my daughter violin.
Alex
It was a great first day. My child felt motivated by her teacher
Ryan
Cara is the best music teacher we've ever met. My daughter Amanda (now 6 years old) started learning piano from her 8 months ago. Before that Amanda learned piano for 1 year but didn't have good progress. Now, Not only can Amanda play piano very well, but also she can play violin well for 5 variations of Twinkle Twinkle, after only 9 violin classes from Cara. The most important thing is: Amanda is falling love with the music, which I believe will benefit her whole life. In our opinion, experience, fun, discipline and child-centered are the key to Cara's teaching success. We have met with her husband (a retired band director), and two daughters (both professional violinists), we can feel their love to the music and really admire their music skill.

Our friends thought we were crazy when they knew the fact that we need to drive 60 minutes single trip to take the weekly lesson, but after they see Amanda playing piano and violin, they think it well deserves it.

Cara is the best music teacher for kids in Metro-Orlando area. If you want your kid to fall in love with music, she is your best choice. Go Cara!

Justin's enthusiasm as a guitarist and instructor is absolutely infectious. He had great insight that brought me nearly immediate improvement and showed me exercises that make practicing fun. I'm really glad to have found him!
Madeleine
First lesson and Justin was great. Our daughter really took to him.
John M.
My son is almost 9 and has been playing for about 2 years. His last teacher provided a solid foundation but Justin has taken lessons to the next level. He sets reasonable expectations but my son is more excited to practice every day because he feels challenged. So far so good. I would highly recommend.

I have devoted much of my life to music, and through MY decades’ worth of study in the jazz vernacular and wide knowledge of music from the past hundred years, hopes to be able to impart this same enthusiasm to his listeners and students.

I am a guitarist and composer from Seattle Washington. Beginning in 1995 I studied with Seattle musicians such as John Hanberry, Ev Stern and Milo Peterson. I have led and co-lead a number of different groups in Seattle performing at local clubs, weddings and bars ranging in styles including jazz, funk, swing and old time string music. Most notably I hosted the local Thursday night jazz jam session (2015-2017) and played double bass for the ‘20s jazz and Appalachian fiddle music band Porterbelly (2012-2020). In 2020, I moved to New York City to study at NYU.

Viviana
My daughter loves to play with teacher Eleonora. She’s been practicing with her since the past two years and cannot be happier as for results and focus. Eleonora is very patient, attentive, professional and with a fun approach that makes kids at ease and get ready to play.
Tzipora
Eleanora is a patient, kind, warm, and very professional teacher. She is everything you could possible hope for. She adjusted her pace to meet my schedule and kept me on track with a firm but gentle approach. She has reaffirmed my love for music and taught me things (such as improvisation) which I never imagined I could do. In just a few lessons, I feel like I have come so far with Eleanora!
Judith
Eleanor is professional, but also someone I can really relax with. She is calm, patient and really knows what she is doing. My goals for playing harp music are not standard, and she instantly adapted and stepped in just where I wanted to be with my instruction.
