Jonathan is the best violin teacher! My son had his first lesson today and he absolutely loved it. Very quickly Jonathan was able to find my son's strengths and the areas that he needs to work on. Not a minute was wasted during the lesson, at the same time he took his time to explain everything in detail. I can tell he can work with any level student. I liked his knowledge, passion, energy and positivity. If you are looking for a violin teacher for your child or yourself, do not hesitate to go with Jonathan!

To follow up, Jonathan is not only a very talented musician; but also takes his time with my daughter to help her understand, comprehend, and improve. The evening after our first lesson with Jonathan, she asked if she could play more (more often and longer) in lieu of chores - WOW! Never thought I'd hear that from my daughter; but Jonathan made the session enjoyable and encouraging to her. THANK YOU!!

This was the 1st violin lesson for my 5 year old daughter. And it went far better than expected. Mrs. Rui is a wonderful teacher. Patient, warm, and very talented with teaching young children. I was impressed to see how much my daughter learned in only 45 minutes. When it was over my daughter said, "That was so much fun!". My daughter is looking forward to her next lesson.

Aside from all the technical aspects of learning violin, I will coach you to become a confident musician. You will achieve this confidence by strengthening your skills and having fun at the same time!

You will learn: proper technique, music theory, music history, to sight-read, tune your violin, solos, collaborate with other musicians, how to conduct, and how to prepare for an audition.

I take the lessons at the student's learning pace, and I challenge them to get past mental barriers.

Whether you are playing as a hobby, interested in preparing for an audition, or simply need extra help, this is the place for you. You must be able to purchase/rent a violin.

If you want lessons in your home, contact me and we will see if I can make the arrangements, otherwise, lessons are held in my home studio.

I have taught violin for 30 years. My students enjoy playing in groups and performing as soloists. Many of my violin students have attended music camps throughout the U.S I teach using a combination of Suzuki and my own select books and pieces. I offer three showcases per year that are filled with such FUN. The showcases are so fun that the usual response to them is : Can I play more than one song next time and I should have invited more friends to come. I am excited that YOU want music lessons

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!

Cara is an absolutely amazing instructor! As an 'older' beginning student, I was treated with kindness and sincerity. Her patience with my ineptitude made me feel like a pro, rather than a beginner. She was able to listen to what I wished to accomplish and in a few short months, she delivered just that and more. Thank you, Cara!

I want to provide students with the opportunity to do and achieve anything they desire with music and become well-rounded musicians. My goal is to enable students to make music independently and become self-sufficient learners. As a result, students can enjoy music for their own playing and/or choose to become professional musicians.

As a brand new adult student, I had concerns that I could find an instructor who could work with my sometimes-busy schedule. Anna enthusiastically agreed to teach me though, and after almost a year of taking lessons with her I've seen great progress! Anna shares her wealth of knowledge in a friendly and encouraging manner, and has happily tailored my curriculum to fit my interests. I'd highly recommend her to any student, without hesitation!
