I am an experienced teacher of 16 years! I thrive on finding each student's specific learning style and cultivating a positive and productive learning experience within that. I apply consistent and focused energy in getting my students to strive for their best, and I aim to inspire them to respond in turn with the same focused and accurate effort.

I teach using a modified Suzuki method. This means that, while I do subscribe to Suzuki's "mother tongue" approach, I also believe that education on an instrument requires literacy from a young age. I have discovered in my years of teaching that an early ability to read notes and understand musical theory and form is not a handicap to a student's development, but rather a benefit to the student gaining a richer, fuller understanding of their instrument and music in general.

I believe that every person can be taught, that parental involvement is crucial in the development of musicians from a young age through the high school years, and ...

My daughter has been learning piano with Leah for over a year now. I really appreciate that Leah is able to keep her interested in learning. In fact, this is the longest learning activity my daughter has been able to keep up so far without giving up. We definitely love that Leah will continue teaching our kid.”

I like for my students to learn effectively and efficiently. In addition, I teach them quality over quantity. It's not about the amount of time you dedicate. It's about what you dedicate in the amount of time.

"Gifted Teacher!!!

If you are searching for an outstanding violin teacher, I highly recommend Helena.  Her students benefit from her many years of teaching and performing experience as well as her extensive educational background.  When you learn musical pieces with Helena she teaches proper technique with just the right amount of music theory to produce well-rounded musicians.  Some of her best qualities are her great abundance of patience that she mixes with professionalism, kindness, a sense of humor, and a great deal of encouragement.  Helena is certainly a violin teacher you will be glad you found. I feel privileged to be her student! Thank you Helena for continually inspiring me to learn and keeping me challenged as well!"

"When I started lessons with Geronimo, I was hoping to work on sounds quality and enhance my performance skills. I was not disappointed. My favorite part of working with Geronimo was his attention to details and ability to help me meet my goals as a musician. He is extremely knowledgeable about music technique and able to guide his students through each step of dissecting songs to bring out the best dynamics. I feel that he is an excellent choice for students of all ages that want to blossom in their abilities."

"I am an adult learner, I started with a different instructor but I was frustrated with a number of things. I contacted Tania with my frustrations and then started lessons. She has been a joy to work with. Her first question to me was what my goals were. I really appreciated this, because I am an adult who has carved out 30-60 minutes each day to practice. So I definitely have goals. The overall goal of improving is nicely balanced with pieces and styles that I find interesting and enjoyable. My previous teacher was not very attentive to body mechanics and so I was hitting a wall both in terms of ability and comfort. I mentioned to him my back was hurting and he thought I was making conversation rather than asking for help. I didn't even need to tell Tania my back was hurting after practicing, because she starting suggesting tweaks to my mechanics after watching me play for just a few minutes. Playing immediately became more comfortable and enjoyable. Tania understands that playing violin is parts listening, mechanics, theory and playing. When I'm having trouble with one we will discuss parts of the others and a first it didn't seem related then suddenly I see a convection between the different parts and the connection makes my playing better. I would absolutely recommend Tania. She has a deep understanding of the topic and makes learning violin funner and easier. Scheduling has always been easy."

"Patient, encouraging, knowledgeable

He is a very good instructor. His ears some how manage to survive the treacherous hour of me trying to find notes without even a hint of suffering. Not only has he guided me on how to practice and improve, my violin was in terrible disarray. He has helped me identify what needed repair which has also helped in the quality of sound. The environment where he instructs is welcoming, tidy, and comfortable. He is fantastic in his abilities as a musician and a teacher. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
