Benita has proven to be a very smart, reliable, and flexible violin instructor for my 13 year old son who needed additional help while taken orchestra via virtual learning. I have seen a significant improvement in his playing skills and grades as a result of her weekly lessons. I highly recommend Benita!
Chloe F.
Miss Benita as we call her :) is so good with my 8-year-old daughter. In just 3 lessons they have built a great rapport. Benita is relaxed, reassuring, with a great sense of humor while at the same time imparting great knowledge of the violin to my daughter. I appreciate her welcoming us into her family home even during the pandemic. We felt that in-person instruction would be more desirable than online, and I think that my daughter is learning so much more with our arrangement.
Elisa V.
Very patient and a really good teacher with my daughter!☺️

I had a great first lesson with Damien. He is patient and extremely considerate. Damien took the time to determine a baseline of my general knowledge. He answered my questions and fully explained the concepts that we discussed. At all times I felt that I was having a positive experience and I have set goals for my next lesson. I am energized and motivated to continue and look forward to my next lesson with Damien.

Lipeng is very patient and encouraging for my beginner 11-year-old, using the video format well to demonstrate the songs and watch the student. She has been a good fit for a player who is motivated to improve but can complain a little bit about practicing everyday.
Paul C.
Very first lesson with Lipeng and I enjoyed it so very much. Lipeng encourages to listen to the music and then accentuate the notes to make it music, not to simply play them.

I’m an adult viola student which is kind of different for me. I started playing again after a couple years and I’m trying to learn ways to play with other musicians. Emily has been really good with helping me focus on what I want to learn. She is patient with me and also plays with me and makes me feel comfortable in my lesson. afterwards I feel good and positive and I want to play more! I suggest her for anyone trying to be creative and wants to improve on tempo, rythm, tone etc. she’s good.

It is a year later and my daughter is playing well. Anje enjoys her classes and thinks Emily is a great instructor.

"Wonderful results, and a lot of fun!

If you're looking for someone to start the violin with, look no further than Arielle D. She can start you from the ground up, even if touché never read or played music a day in your life. She will try different approaches if the standard book stuff isn't working. She's also great with scheduling, very easygoing with make-up lessons. She also made me feel very comfortable and relaxed during my lessons."
