I am a classically trained violinist and violist passionate about helping my violin and viola students develop a love for music and for their instrument by way of a solid technical foundation and efficient practicing skills. Though I am most familiar with the Essential Elements and Suzuki lesson books, I am willing to use a different method book should you have one available. I welcome students with special needs, and am thoroughly versed in the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic violin and viola repertoire.

She is so nice and friendly. My 5 year old daughter likes the lessons which is interesting and easy to catch up
Prema
Catherine is a kind, friendly and very patient while teaching me violin lessons. She walked me through Musical Grammar and taught me the details of "Violin instrument". She makes the lessons fun and challenging too which helps us to go to the next level of learning. She gets into the details as to how I'm playing and in the end its just that she wants me to get it right . She has always encouraged me and motivated me to learn. I didn;t know the "ABC's of music but she has taught me alot till date. I'm glad I found her as my music teacher.

Catherine is patient, conscientious, caring and a very experienced violin teacher. My daughter has progressed not just in violin skills but also in discipline, resilience and confidence in other skills.

I teach my students proper body posture which strengthens the core. Bowing excercise and scales begin each lesson before me move on to music. I encourage students to eat before the lesson and also excercise which can help alleviate nervousness.

"I started lessons with Panagiota as an adult with zero expectations. After completing a year of lessons with her, what I’ve been able to accomplish has far exceeded my expectations. Panagiota is always patient, kind, and encouraging. She always helps point out when I might be developing a bad habit or my timing is slightly off. I’m now learning second position and am on Suzuki Book 3. Panagiota is a phenomenal teacher and if you apply a strong work ethic, I say anything is possible under her tutelage :)"

"Elizabeth is a phenomenal instructor! Both kind and patient, she is incredibly knowledgeable and takes the time to help me understand the nuances of technique or the background of a particular piece of music. I'm nowhere near a natural player, but her approach to structuring my lessons and practice activities fits my needs as a learner, especially considering that I am an adult student juggling a myriad of other responsibilities. Elizabeth is adept at tailoring her lessons and long-term approach to my growth as a player to my skills and challenges, so that I not only immensely enjoy the experience, but also feel the growth I am making each and every week. She's the best I've ever had!!"
