· Fiddle · Online What a wonderful and enthusiastic teacher! My daughter has had fiddle lessons for 2 years in person, and to finally cut down on our two-hour commute I suggested on-line lessons. The computer had a few connection issues on our end that we will definitely iron out before our next session. Lucky for us, Kathleen worked patiently through the connectivity bumps and gave a very upbeat, challenging lesson with all the backup sheet music, recording, and plenty of thumbs up to keep my daughter motivated and practising. We are very happy we "found" Kathleen and highly recommend her as an instructor!!

· Fiddle · Online I was very impressed with my lesson with Kathleen. She started from the beginning, leaving nothing out, but she always had a sense of urgency. I felt like she treated our lesson time as very valuable and wanted to pack as much good stuff into the lesson as possible. Kathleen was also extremely friendly and encouraging. It was an all-around great experience.

· Violin · In home She is amazing! My 6 year old started at 5 in Germany and in 6 lessons he learned more and is better than he did in a whole year. She is SO sweet and soft spoken. She praises all the time and has all kinds of neat tricks or tools to make it fun especially for an almost 6 year old! We can not thank her enough for being part of our lives! Our son adores her and now calls the violin the God of Music because of her!
