Natalie F was my orchestra director when I attended Oxford High school. Her direction has inspired me to become the best musician I can be as I attend undergraduate school for double bass performance. Natalie is amazing at setting up the experiences to know what it is like to be a musician. Also, she typically is very knowledgeable about current going on’s in the orchestral world. She has on multiple occasions given me or recommended me for professional gigs. I’ve known her long enough now to have seen her growth as a music educator and can tell you that she has a bright future in this regard.
Heather
Very detailed oriented. Excellent rapport with students and well connected in the professional and semi-professional music community giving students additional performing opportunities.

Natalie has been so helpful with our transition into online lessons. So grateful for all of her wonderful insight and vast knowledge of the instrument. Her lessons have been so fun and enjoyable!

This was my first lesson with Zeynep. I have had several Tutors over the past 4 years. Zeynep was ready for my arrival. She was friendly, yet very professional. She watched me play a short piece and was able to discern from that where I needed help. Zeynep was able to give me new tips on bowing and finger placement. I am certainly looking forward to my next a Lesson with Zeynep.
Addison/Lauren
My daughter had the pleasure of taking lessons with Zeynep this past summer in the PALS program in Aspen. She loved each week when it was lesson time. This is what Addison had to say, "She always would say the area I needed to work on nicely. I loved that she gave me knew things to learn at each lesson. If I didn't understand, she would keep encouraging me until I did." This was an excellent experience!
Bethany
A unique and special experience! My daughter always looked forward to her sessions with Zeynep. She has been her mentor for the past two summers at the PALS program. Once after a lesson my daughter told me that she was surprised how much better she played the song after her session with Zeynep. I love the way Zeynep engages with my daughter and brings out the best in her.

Mel has done a fantastic job getting me started on Mandolin. I have a tiny bit of musical background, and he has been able to help me quickly move to where I need to be in order to challenge me to grow. I highly reccomend him.

Mel is incredible and a very thoughtful instructor. He takes the time to make sure you understand the concepts and works with you to make sure you progress in an efficient logical way. He really spends the time with you and you feel like he is as committed to your learning experience as you are. I would recommend him for anyone looking for lessons and I am excited to keep studying the fiddle and violin with him.

My name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands. It all one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not having fun while learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND educational at the same time. I have had many parents tell me I'm one of the best teachers they have ever seen. (A couple of them were public school teachers themselves). I truly want my students to succeed and I will do everything in my power to help them accomplish that!

Michelle
Extremely unprofessional to abruptly cancel scheduled/paid lessons without the courtesy of a message or any notice because this instructor was unhappy with a 12-year-old child's progress. Very surprised by and disappointed in the manner in which he handled this situation, certainly could have been handled with more respect and maturity.

Jerry is a wonderful instructor. I wasn’t sure how online lessons would go but they have been seamless and fun and my son is making progress with the bugle. I would highly recommend this format and this teacher. The convenience and quality of instruction are excellent. We are signing up for more lessons and may move on to another instrument once my son feels confident on the bugle.

"I met Pyunghwa in Germany when I was 14 and took lessons with her for 2 years. I was having trouble finding a good teacher before then and was quite lucky to find her. She is a kind-hearted, caring, patient, and motivating teacher, not to mention her impressive performing career. As her student, she taught me to look at my music through the lens of a musician, pushed me to connect notes with expression, and imparted useful techniques with which to approach challenging pieces. She always knew exactly what I needed to work on in lessons and how to guide me through it in a way that I would be able to tackle the pieces on my own later on. She would first demonstrate with her violin, then have me practice with her until I was confident. With an expert’s ear and great attention to detail, she picked up the finer details that I might have breezed over. I used the techniques she taught me even when I’d moved, and she was no longer my teacher. Our lesson time was always maximized, and Pyunghwa was energetic and encouraging throughout it.

Pyunghwa cared for me as a music student in her instruction and also sought after opportunities that would help me expand my skills as a violinist. With no school orchestra to join, she found opportunities for me to perform with the local youth orchestra that gave me the experience I later built on to lead my school orchestra as a concertmaster.

With her knowledge and experience, Pyunghwa is a wonderful teacher for both the beginner and the advanced student. She is firm but gentle and patient, able to connect the new student to a challenging instrument in an exciting and approachable manner. As for the advanced student, working with a teacher with such vast experience and natural skill is a blessing."

"I am a returning student to the violin. Nikita is a musician who is passionate about what he does. I "studied" (more like, didn't practice) violin for 13 years when i was younger. I had a lot of bad habits. Nikita ensures that when you first start out that you start out with good habits and he emphasizes this by going slowly. My violin teacher growing up would always chide me about how I didn't have the right posture for holding the violin and bow, but I was never able to improve. Then, recently I had another violin teacher and I struggled to improve my form for over a month with him. Nikita? I improved immediately. He is a talented teacher and one you will enjoy having for both his passion and his ability to correct and improve your playing."

"My 11 yr old son has been playing violin for a while with the same teacher, and we decided to change teachers to learn other techniques and to pique his interest. We have been with Tigran for almost two months now and there has been a significant
improvement with my son's playing. He seem to acquire back his enthusiasm and passion for playing. He plays with our community Youth Orchestra on the 1st violin
and sits on the 4th chair before starting with Tigran, now he was advanced to the 2nd chair. We are grateful to Tigran for his patience and time. He is very accommodating with his schedule and goes out of his way in teaching my son, on top of it all he is very professional. We would highly recommend him as a great violin teacher."

Kelvin has been an excellent instructor for our daughter. He is articulate in a friendly and informative way. She enjoys her online lessons with Kelvin and has improved her technique within months. He has discovered and adjusted the unhelpful habits that she has developed over years of study. The improved quality of her playing has not only lifted her confidence and inspired her to keep practicing, but it has been recognized by other instructors as well.
