Autumn is a wonderful, talented violinist and instructor. She teaches my 14 years old daughter and does a wonderful job of instilling good violin practice in her life. Autumn is also a great role model for my child. Autumn is always on time, never misses lessons, and uses the lesson time purposefully. Online lessons are no problem for her because she is skilled and pays close attention to my child during lessons. We love Autumn and hope to remain with her for many years to come.
