Ina is wonderful! She really makes the first experience comfortable. She is very detailed, which helps understand the basics. I can't wait to go back.

Ina is everything you could want in a teacher! She's extremely talented (played wonderfully in the symphony orchestra that I went to see!) and has a good grasp of music theory. She is very kind, friendly and patient, and really does an incredible job of bringing out musical talent even for people like me who haven't touched a musical instrument since elementary school! :) I'm truly honored to have her as a teacher, and I hope that you can get the chance to learn from her as well!

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!
