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.

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.
