I purchased a package of violin lessons with Mary-Elizabeth for my wife a couple months ago for the holidays. She has continued her lessons on a fixed weekly schedule. Here is what she has to say: "Mary-Elizabeth has made learning the violin very easy and enjoyable. She is patient, fun to work with, encouraging, and has a great sense of humor. Even though I had violin lessons before, working with Mary-Elizabeth has made a big difference."

Guitar is the first instrument I learned to play starting from when I was 12 years old. I have taught many students how to play guitar from the ground up!

My teaching method starts with what you want to learn to play. That's what it is all about, right? Learning the songs you want to play becomes a vehicle for knowing more about guitar.

For beginning guitar, it is best if we can meet in person so I can see your hand position and posture in detail.

Hello there! My name is Lauren, and I have over a decade of experience teaching violin. I earned my BM and MM degrees from Eastman School of Music in Violin Performance and perform regularly at venues such as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center.

As a teacher, I adapt my teaching methods on-the-spot to introduce and reinforce concepts in a patient, enthusiastic, and creative manner tailored to each student. In addition to equipping my students with proper violin technique, students are empowered and develop their communication skills and confidence while fostering a lasting curiosity for learning and a genuine love for the imaginative and expressive capabilities of music.

Lauren is an amazing violin instructor to our 11 year old son. She is always on time, has a great way with kids, and really brought out his confidence. I over heard him in the lesson saying “ohhh, that’s how you do it.” Lauren is a highly accomplished musician and outstanding teacher. We highly recommend her to anyone.
Thomas
When I first started studying with Lauren in 2017, I was a freshman in high school and stuck in the fifth stand of my orchestra. Six months later, I moved up to being the concert master. Lauren is amazing. She brings out the best in my playing. She has a great ear for music, she is an amazing violinist, and the best teacher I have ever had. With Lauren I was able to progress from 3rd position to 7th position in a short time. She is very kind and patient, and never gets frustrated with me (unlike all my other teachers). She is the reason I have been able to excel at violin. Best. Teacher. Ever.

"As an adult beginner, I found Don's approach of focusing on the fundamentals key to producing a strong sound and forming good habits when practicing cello. I played violin for six years growing up but in that time never received such great instruction on technique of playing a stringed instrument as I did in a few months of cello lessons with Don. He is a very knowledgeable cellist and quickly recognizes adjustments in technique required for improvement. Additionally, he organizes recitals for his students, giving us a nice opportunity to perform. His knowledge, patience, and gentle manner make him a great instructor."

"Kelly has helped me take strides on my singing pathway. I have grown immensely when it comes to controlling my voice and how to properly support it. Whenever a technique is difficult to understand, Kelly will explain it in a technical way and then also break it down in a fun way to make it much, much easier to comprehend. This helps so much because then I learn the terminology and also how to actually do what is being asked of me. Kelly is so knowledgeable on what she teaches that she can create different ways to deliver each technique to her students on the spot in a way that will truly stick with them. The comfortable and positive atmosphere that Kelly creates allows me to really enjoy the singing I am doing and also experiment with my voice and not worry about sounding awful. I am so grateful to have such an encouraging, fun, and knowledgeable vocal coach. She is truly the best!"
