I took 10 lessons with a different teach last summer and ended my package not being able to read sheet music or find my finger placement on the strings without second thought.

I have had just 3 lessons with Ellen thus far, and am reading sheet music like a wiz and gaining more and more confidence each lesson with my finger placement and now bowing.

Ellen has a wonderful system of teaching that truly makes everything she exposes you to stick, and has been getting me very excited to continue on knowing that I am in good hands and will progress quickly because of it. I will most definitely continue to see Ellen.

Ellen is so great! I can't say enough about how fantastic she is with my 10 year old daughter. Very friendly, very encouraging, and she really knows her stuff! So pleased with how the lessons are going!

Ellen is a fantastic teacher!! She has knowledge in so many genres and styles of singing and she knows how to work with many types of singers! I am a classically trained singer but needed to work on my belt, and I got tips and training from Ellen better than I'd gotten from any other classical voice teacher. Thanks, Ellen!

Ellen is a masterful instructor. Her skill and experience are matches well with her love of playing. She brings professionalism and fun, structure and adaptability, and most importantly patience and compassion to the art of teaching that is not so easy to find in any profession. You will be in good hands.

Ellen is wonderful. She's been playing cello for over a decade and received her degree from Berklee College of Music. Knowing that, I anticipated that she would be somewhat intimidating in our lesson together, but she was the exact opposite-- she was so down to earth, and she was very encouraging when I felt like I was not getting the hang of things in time. She's also very receptive to your needs/desires. We just barely crossed paths while she was in town, and I was merely hoping to get a feel for the instrument, so we had a very playful (but informative!) experience. I know that she also has a wealth of formal training, so no matter what your pace--she's your girl. She also has a cool band of her own, which you should check out!
