This is just a follow up. She continues to do an absolutely beautiful job of teaching and yet still infusing the lesson with loads of fun! I couldn’t be happier.... She is the perfect example of what a violin instructor should be.

Jennifer's home is welcoming and so is she! She prepared a lesson book with my name on it and the lesson area was perfect. I cant wait for my next lesson. Jennifer's energy is warm and pleasant and she is patient but still corrects posture and hand positions to help create good habits from the get go.

She continues to get even better as time goes on. She is an awesome teacher and makes relearning the violin FUN after a 30 year hiatus. I am thinking about even trying out for our local symphony orchestra. HOW COOL IS THAT?!?!

What can I say? She's awesome and has me playing the violin again after only 3 lessons. (I had not played for 30 years!) She is kind and very patient, and I feel very fortunate to have her as an instructor. The greatest compliment I can give her is that she makes the lessons fun and is a great teacher as well.

Jennifer is awesome! I had a lot of fun with the lesson and she taught me a whole bunch. My confidence levels are much higher that my violin playing is going to come back to me faster than ever. What can I say, fantastic!

Our 7 year old daughter always looks forward to seeing Ms. Jennifer for her weekly lesson. Jennifer always keeps the lessons fun while delivering a solid learning experience for our daughter. We couldn’t be happier and we feel so grateful to have such a talented and caring musician teaching our daughter!

I'm not usually one to write reviews but I have to compliment Jennifer on her patience and enthusiasm with my first piano lesson last week. I'm super excited to keep going to learn piano, something I have wanted to do for a long time.

I have two children both taking lessons with Jennifer - one on violin and one on piano. They love when Jennifer shows up at the door and they both run to see who can open it first! Jennifer is a bundle of smiling energy, always excited to teach my kids something new and worthwhile. She makes the lessons fun, never boring. We started off with 30 minute lessons but increased to 45 minutes ‘cause my kids always want her to stay longer!

I cannot say enough about my violin teacher, Jennifer. What started out as just a refresher course turned into so much more. I hadn't played the violin since high school, and now, many years later, I have been able to dig into the part of me that really loves music, and really enjoys playing. Thank you, Jennifer, for helping me see the potential I did not know was inside me. Your patience and positive coaching are the reasons I am playing violin again!

Jennifer is hands down the best! I've been taking violin lessons with her for over a year now and I went from only knowing "twinkle little star" to playing my fave pop tune! I look forward to learning more music from her!
