Such a wonderful teacher ! Christina is kind and so patient with kids who are learning music. She is so smart and her knowledge in music is amazing. My daughter has progressed significantly in the last few months with Christina , at a much better pace than all her previous years learning with other tutors. She is training my daughter for ABRSM exam too . Christina has great communication skills and always lets us know the ways to help kids learn better. Her positivity and graceful presence has made my daughters passion for music increase immensely !! Great teacher !!! Highly recommended!!

My son has been taking lessons from Cristina for 2 years and wow has he progressed. He loves his lessons, can read music, and is playing well. The struggle is getting him to practice! Cristina has a great blend of warmth, knowledge and discipline that works well for my 6,7, and now 8 year old son. I highly recommend her.

After a decade of teaching violin to students of all backgrounds, including students with shyness or attention issues (adults can have them too!), I've learned that there is no one way to learn this instrument. With the knowledge that violin teaches life skills and daily coping mechanisms beyond the music itself, I work to create a learning environment that promotes fun and caters to a student's learning style, strengths, and needs. (p.s. -- I've been featured on the Today Show, ABC News, Classic.FM, and by Ellen DeGeneres!)

I had limited time (and money) to work on my speaking voice. My goal was to make it more pleasant to hear, both for myself and for others. Laura did a great job identifying what I needed to improve, and helping me to make needed adjustments quickly. She even went the extra mile to provide me with some "take away tools" that I can use going forward. I highly recommend Laura. As a teacher, she's fun, knowledgeable, and effective!
Sue D.
Laura is taking me at a comfortable pace as I learn new skills, and is making sure I have the tools in my toolbox to improve. I am impressed at how she can pick up on what I need to improve on through a video conference as opposed to being in my actual physical presence. Go Laura!
Caroline B.
Laura's Italian is impeccable. She is so gifted with the language that you would think she is a native speaker. Her talents are many and her energy is infectious. Cannot recommend her enough!

I believe that every student learns at varying paces. I emphasize my students strengths so they can excel at sight reading or playing by ear. I love to create personal connections so that our learning environment is safe and open. I am a fashion designer and musician who bonds very well with creative types! I encourage keeping practice records, but understand busy weekly schedules.

I began playing piano and viola at age ten and never stopped! I joined the Youth Symphony of Kansas City as a teenager and fell in love with orchestra. My private viola studies allowed me to join groups such as the Kansas City String Quartet Program and Heartland Chamber Music. One of my favorite performances was recently playing with the Heartland Chamber Men's Chorus.

About Hannah

"At the age of 58 I decided to start taking violin lessons for 2 reasons, enjoyment of playing music and exercise my brain. I found Lucy K on the takelessons.com website and she was able to accommodate my request for lessons in my home on a Sunday. Starting from scratch, she taught me the fundamentals of playing and I have made some progress over the last 8 months. She is patient with me yet will push me along and at time bring me out of my comfort zone, which is good. She has the ability and training to teach students from early age to older adults like me. In addition, she also teaches piano, which my wife started lessons with Lucy K at the same time I started violin. She has my recommendation if you have interest in either violin or piano.

He can teach anyone from beginning to advanced. My daughter has been first violin for many years, but still improved her playing tremendously when she started taken lessons with Mr. Speedy about a year a go. He really is a great instructor!!!"

She has basically had to teach both myself and my daughter how to tune and play the violin. Her patience and creativity have been so helpful.
