Ina is a very upbeat, knowledgeable, and patient teacher. I went to her as someone who had played thru High School, and then not touched the instrument for over thirty years. She started me off with a review of the basics and she is helping me regain some of the skills I had as a teenager, as well as not re-developing the bad habits I had the first time around.
I would highly recommend Ina to anyone who would like to learn the viola - young, or older.

Ina has a very friendly down to earth approach and excellent knowledge in music. I am sure that whether you are a beginner or highly advanced player, anyone will be able to benefit from her teaching. If it is a proper music lesson from an experienced professional, I would recommend to get in touch with her.

I studied viola with Ina for over 2 years. She is an excellent teacher, very patient, encouraging, and extremely knowledgeable. In fact, I managed to get a distinction in grade 6 ABRSM exam and feel that she has taken my playing to a whole new level. I highly recommend her as a violin/viola teacher!
