There is a potential in every person to be truly great at any one thing. All it takes is hard work and honest determination, with determination being the most important. Because where determination comes, hard work follows naturally.
I hope to inspire my students to really love making music and being creative with their instruments. I can give my students all the information in the world and tips on how to improve at violin playing, but in the end it will not matter if the student has no desire to improve. And that is why I love to teach- inspiring students to love what they do!

Abi is an incredibly knowledgeable, kind, and helpful teacher. She makes learning fun and easy.

If you are a beginner, you can expect to first master technique of the instrument. Afterwards, you will learn how to master a beautiful tone and sound.

As an intermediate, you will learn how to approach things in a different way than normal. You will learn not only how to play something "correctly" but how to play musically, artistically and beautifully.

As an advanced student, you can expect to be challenged to think critically about technique, sound, phrasing, etc.

This was truly a great experience for my grandchild. Students not only learned the proper techniques to become an excellent violinist but also music appreciation. I was quite impressed that the instructor taught the students about various composers around the world. Students gained knowledge about classical to jazz.
Xiaoshuang
Our experience with Amara is of the best among all violin teachers we have had. She is patient and friendly with kids, which really helps get the kid “into” the class; she listens, and will “customize” the class based on the parent’s feedback/kid’s personality; most important, we feel that she is devoted to teaching, for example, she will spend extra time to record practice spot videos for the students. I am confident my daughter will advance a lot with Amara.

Amara is patient, thorough and clear. She teaches at a high level.

I am a professional peer, and fellow guitar instructor. Having known Kayla for the last several years, I have seen how her simple, yet masterfully thorough approach to instruction can excite and entertain students of all ages.

Kayla uses her collegiate level music theory and performance background to educate on a plethora of subjects. However, she clearly communicates beneficial concepts to both children and adults alike.

I highly recommend Kayla both as a peer, and a student. I’ve benefited from her wisdom, and insight throughout the years, and I know you will too.

"I know Lella as a colleague, and we have also done a lesson exchange. Lella loves music and cares about her students. She wants them to do well. She focuses on where the student is and guides the student to play better. She sometimes focuses on one section of the piece or on one hand to help them improve that portion. I only took piano for a few years growing up, but in 20 minutes, she was able to help me quite a bit with a song I had never played before.

Lella's biggest difficulty is the fact that she is still learning English (her native language is Mandarin Chinese), but between what she does know and is able to demonstrate, she is still very helpful."

Easy and Fun Vocal Warmups for Kids

Are you wondering how to find fun and age-appropriate vocal warm ups for kids? Teaching young voices presents a unique challenge to voice teachers. As singers, our body is our instrument, and we work to develop muscle memory in a way that supports good vocal technique and healthy singing. However, younger students are working with an instrument that is not fully developed. It is unwise to train young voices in the same way we train adult voices, as their physical instrument is going to change in …
