Supportive and encouraging. Very happy with her. Sometimes I can’t hear well through her mask.
Natalie
We are loving cello with Quinn! We had her in person before COVID and now online. She does a great job of guiding the learning process and working with the student (my daughter as an individual)
Shauna
My 9 yr old daughter began cello lessons with Quinn about 2 weeks before lockdown started. I was worried that online lessons wouldn't work out, but Quinn has been amazing. She's great at explaining everything so that my daughter understands, and she pushes just enough to keep her interested without being overwhelmed. She also answers questions promptly by email when any problems arise. I can't recommend her highly enough!

Elisa is a great violin teacher. I'm proud to be her oldest student on record (I am approaching 75). I started playing just about three years ago all by myself. Then went to Elisa to see if I could make quicker improvements. She patiently corrected a lot of my bad habits and showed me the right way to practice. I was able to make good progress over times. She is fun to be with. Highly recommended for both young and old.
John
Elisa is an amazing viola teacher! The techniques and practicing methods work like magic, and I've improved so much since I started taking lessons. I highly recommend taking lessons from her!
Laura
Elisa is a great violin teacher. She is patient and fun, yet challenges our daughter which helps her advance quickly. She is very skilled at setting developmentally appropriate goals and my 9 year old daughter loves her!

Denice is an extremely qualified and fenomenal teacher. She has taught me Suzuki violin and Fiddling for 6 years, and I have progressed further than I thought possible in both my playing and listening skills, and my knowledge of music. She cares a tremendous amount about her work and her students which makes the program like a second family to me. Her teaching style is direct and purposeful, and she knows exactly how to push her students to become better players. I highly recommend Denice to everyone, regardless of their skill or age.
Janet
Denice has taught my daughter for six years and has really challenged my daughter to keep striving for excellence. Suzuki method is the best and combined with fiddling, Denice provides a wonderful musical education. Denice has nurtured a supportive teacher-student relationship but is so much more: a mentor, coach, and friend.

If you are looking for a Suzuki teacher who puts her heart and soul into her students and teaching, has high expectations, and also opens up a whole ‘nother musical experience in fiddling, I would definitely recommend Denice.

Very nice and professional. My daughter loves her.
Jessi
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.

Students can expect a relaxed, fun, and encouraging atmosphere for learning. The violin can be an intimidating instrument- you will make a lot of unpleasant sounds before you start sounding great- and that's okay! I'll be there to guide you and help you reach your goals.

If you're already an experience player, you can expect me "workshopping" your technique. We will analyze your form, practice patterns, and playing style, to ensure that you are growing and improving from the moment we begin. I will push you to become the most expressive player that you can become, but at a pace that feels comfortable for you.

What young students can expect:

- Preparing for entry into school orchestra
- Polishing up school orchestra repertoire
- Learning new material and scales
- Perfecting their technique
- Preparing for NYSSMA
- Preparing college audition tapes (I do have the ability to record these as well)
- Learning to play with confidence
- Learning vibrato

What adult ...

"Working with Johnathan has been a joy.

It was my purpose setting out to study music in general, not just to study an instrument but to use the instrument as a means of approaching music in the abstract. I set out to study music’s mechanics and theoretical foundations.

Jonathan is very knowledgeable and very meticulous. He has a precise and analytical sort of mind, and very strong foundations in his classical training.

To have a wealth of knowledge in one's subject is not enough, one also has to know how to teach (which is a whole skillset of its own). It is clear Jonathan is an experienced teacher. I have never felt rushed with Jonathan, he is very generous with his time. He provides ample resources for study outside of our sessions, and is quick to respond to emails. He has lent me books, sent me links to videos, and provided me with plenty of homework.

Jonathan has also been very accommodating in allowing me to have some authority in planning lessons and exploring my own interests. Particularly I wanted to study modal music and found a folk song in the Locrian Mode. We took a break from the Suzuki work we had been doing and he helped me transcribe the song and practice.

I could not recommend Jonathan enough, I am switching focus from violin to piano for the time being and will be employing him as my piano tutor, and I’m very much considering taking spanish lessons under his tutelage as well."
