Though our experience with Jiawei was brief (just three lessons as a summer fill-in for our regular teacher), our daughter very much enjoyed working with her. Jiawei is certainly someone we would pursue as a regular teacher if we had that need.

Great violinist and good teacher.

Taking lessons with Mona has completely changed my playing and technique for the better, much to the notice of my professors and conductor. Despite lessons taking place online, she notices even small details and takes care and kindness in correcting them. Mona’s professionalism and outstanding technique makes lessons with her a must for any violinist.

I have been teaching for over 12 years. The combination of learning technique, music and having fun all at the same time is priceless! No matter what age you are or your ability (beginning, intermediate or advanced), there are no boundaries when it comes to music!

About Wolfgang

Wolfgang was born in Vienna, Austria and raised in the United States. He began his violin studies at age 7. Wolfgang studied with Zona Miller- Pueblo Symphony Orchestra from 1969-1977 and Jessi Ceci- concertmaster of the Denver Symphony Orchestra from 1977-1979. Majoring in violin performance, he

My son has been a student of Wolfgang’s for almost three years now, and in our opinion he is just the best! We’re so grateful to have found him. Not only is he an expert musician, he’s also an expert teacher. It’s not easy to find that combination!

Wolfgang is patient, kind, and funny. He’s always upbeat, and always always gentle and encouraging. At the same time, he has a knack for challenging his students and making them want to work hard for him. He has a deep knowledge of music, and once you progress beyond the beginner level he can really help you with theory, technique, and an endless supply of useful tips about how to get the most out of practice, how to tackle a challenging piece, and how to approach a performance. He has an enthusiasm for his subject that is infectious. Our son has really made amazing progress under Wolfgang’s guidance.

We’ve always found Wolfgang to be super flexible and easygoing on the admin side. We never felt the kind of sales pressure from him that you sometimes get with music schools and teachers. He accommodates our scheduling needs with no pressure and no guilt, and always communicates promptly whenever there might be something on his end that would affect a lesson. In short he’s a real pro, the total package, and you won’t regret hiring him as a teacher.
Erik
I'm extremely happy to have found Wolfgang Track as a violin teacher. Unlike previous teachers I have had, he is extremely patient and easy-going. He delivers instruction and advice very well, making lessons comfortable and engaging.

I am an adult student with a full-time job. Needless to say, I need a teacher that can maintain a flexible schedule and understand my time limits. Wolfgang does both, but never makes me feel like I am "falling behind" or "losing momentum". He is very good at making sure that I feel like I am continuously progressing, which continues to keep me focused.

I can't recommend his services enough. Any student would do well with Wolfgang as an instructor.
Cynthia
My son worked with Wolfgang for close to six years. We absolutely lived Jim. Patient and fun for all ages.

"Tania has been a great teacher for my son. He started learning violin with the Suzuki method and studied with a Suzuki teacher for about four years before stopping lessons. He became interested in violin again in middle school and decided he wanted to take private lessons while in 7th grade. Tania had no trouble getting him back on track, picking up with some Book 2 pieces and moving on to Book 3. She has helped him with his bowing, vibrato and shifting, and his sound has really improved. She also has helped him learn to read better and has introduced some basic music theory into lessons. My son really likes his lessons, and feels that he is learning what he needs. Overall, I like her approach, which I think works very well for this level. She is an excellent musician, and this comes through in her teaching."

She is a very divine teacher and I am definitely coming back."
