Ms. Dongyi is a Fantastic mentor and our son waits for his Violin class with her, more than school, or any of his other activites! Thank you very much, Ms. Dongyi for being such a great teacher. We are very grateful.

For the first lesson, I was extremely please. During this one lesson, my son learned more and played more than 5 1/2 months of previous violin lessons.

Dongyi is knowledgable, reliable, and friendly! I enjoyed every one of my lessons and learned so much from her! She gave me the ability and more importantly the confidence to play an instrument that had intimidated me for years! Thank you, Dongyi!

Great first lesson and looking forward to the next! Feel like I learned quite a bit in one hour :). Dongyi is very kind, patient and supportive. If it weren't for the slight difficulty in communication my rating would be a solid 5 stars.
