I love having Charlene as my teacher. She is very personable, patient, and loves to help her student advance. She is very musically talented and knowledgeable and knows how to effectively pass on her knowledge in a clear, understandable way. I love that she sees exactly why I’m having a problem with something and exactly what I need to do to fix the problem. I feel fortunate to have her.

Private Violin Teacher

I have been teaching violin boht in the schools and privately for over ten years. I take both beginners and intermediate students. I ask that they are able to read well as reading music can be very difficult to a new student.
I use the books String Builder Book 1 for Violin and Strictly Strings Book 1 for Violin, and Music Ace Deluxe which is a fun way to learn their music theory on the computer.
The students will learn their lines and spaces for both the Treble Clef and Bass Clef as well as the note values in their first few lessons as well as the fingering for ope n and closed strings.
I ask that the students practice everyday except the day of their lesson for only 15 minutes as their fingers are not use to it yet. Once they have been playing for awhile then I ask that they start practicing a little longer each day.

Cynthia O.
A great passionate violin instructor.
Loquacious, but each moment of verbal conversation has a message that leads to the musical lessons of the day. I really appreciate her knowledge and skill. I am often reminiscent of my violin instructor as a child. Each session leaves me with the zeal to practice hard in eager preparation
for the next.

Kathy is a kind, patient and methodical teacher. She develops your piano skills with a structured program of theory and exercises geared toward constant improvement. She has helped me improve my piano technique throughout our time together. I have been able to play increasingly challenging pieces on a regular basis with her. I look forward to steadily improving my piano skills.
Robert Bilenchi
I have recently returned from a week long stay at the Sonatina Piano Camp in Bennington VT and would like to notify all those piano students who may read this review as to the wonderful experience attending this camp can be. The camp takes adult piano students at all piano skill levels from beginner to well accomplished. Students stay in shared rooms (2-4 persons) which includes a piano in every room. Attendance is usually 18- 27 persons. The mansion itself is home to approx. 30 pianos. All meals are provided (and are outstanding) as well as piano classes and 4 lessons with concert pianists or university piano professors. Ample time is provided to practice a performance piece for the end of week performance night. Master classes are given on several evenings for those wishing to perform a work in progress piece for the attendees and the camp owner providing a public lesson.
I have found that the attending student group to be extremely supportive to all other students especially to those experiencing performance anxiety. Repeating attendees (from all over the country) have formed lasting friendships among themselves which have endured for years. Eight week long sessions are given throughout the year. In addition there are summer sessions for school aged youth
and also 4 short week sessions for those wishing to try a sampling of the camp. This past January was my 3rd year attending the camp and I will be returning again next year. My experiences at the camp have been truly unforgettable. More information can be obtained at Sonatina.com

Elisabeth has been teaching our 12 year old son piano for several years. She is very methodical in working through curriculum in her instruction, but also flexible to include other “fun” songs that he wanted to play to help keep him motivated. She is very patient and efficient during the lesson time. I may add that my husband is a classical pianist so we were looking for a high quality instructor. We also appreciate that she is flexible with changing lessons times on occasion when our schedule may change for a season. We’ve been very pleased with the progress our son has made under her teaching.

If your searching for an amazing teacher your search is over. Elisabeth has been wonderful violin teacher to my son! She makes corrections without being critical..that's huge!! We highly recommend her!!
Denise
Elisabeth is helping me realize a dream of learning to play both the cello and the violin in my not-so-youthful years. I deeply appreciate her patience and encouragement, her knowledgeable and confident guidance. Each lesson session is a joy because of Elisabeth's upbeat, positive outlook and her genuine desire to see and hear my playing abilities improve.

This far he is a very knowledgeable and professional person. Unfortunately we found that my cello was lacking due to defects in build and so now I have to get a replacement which I am hoping does not hinder our lessons. He has been very helpful with getting me sites to get material and tools necessary for our sessions. Look forward to our next session and moving forward.

He is really good at helping you understand how to play the instrument in detailed but open ways. He is a font of information.

"I am a professional musician who works closely with Jessica. Jessica and I work together at our church in the youth choir/band and the adult choir (I am the director of both music groups). Outside of the church, the two of us also comprise a duo, playing classical music and modern classics together. I can speak to Jessica's professionalism and virtuosity, and I can also speak to her interaction with children.
Jessica is incredibly musical; she sight reads fluently, she has excellent intonation and a beautiful tone on her violin, her rhythm is flawless, and she has an instinctive and musical sense of dynamics, leading to beautiful interpretations and expression. She is a superb player in ensemble/chamber music. As a soloist, she commands the stage with a presence of beauty, technical expertise, and confidence.
Jessica works wonderfully with children. She is a kind and loving influence, giving helpful suggestions to the children to help them develop better musicianship. She has vision as a musician, and she conveys her ideas clearly to both children and adults."
