I'm a beginner student with no music experience. She is very patient and enthusiastic. I was able to understand some of the basics of music beats and notes on the first lesson thanks to Cathy. She also thought me the proper position to hold the violin. I'm very excited to continue my four lessons with her and I couldn't choose a better instructor than her. You can see her passion for teaching violin. I highly recommend her, especially for beginner students.

I learned a technique in that first lesson which is worth all five lessons put together. Cathy is an excellent and patient teacher who uses encouragement and a very positive approach.

Cathy is my daughter's violin instructor. She is very nice and easy to work with. Professional and a good communicator. My daughter really likes her, as do we.

Cathy has been working diligently with me to help my technique to improve, which, strictly speaking, is sadly lacking on my end. She is very patient, bless her! Overall, I am pleased with her and my hope is to become a better musician with her guidance.
