Kathryn is a great instructor. As an adult beginner, I did not know what to expect. She is inviting, cheerful and a great instructor.

We love Kathryn! I signed my daughter up for the lessons, and now I am tempted to take the lesson myself!

I had no knowledge about playing a violin and after just 2 classes I feel very confident. She is very helpful and humble.

Kathryn was a great instructor, it felt like a solid amount of progress in only 45 mins and not feeling overwhelmed! She kept the lesson light and fun, and is clearly passionate about her music.

I was really impressed with my daughter's first lesson. She was taught the instrument, how to hold it and some simple songs to practice. Kathryn was patient and sent me my daughter's homework. There was a great lesson plan and it was obvious Kathryn knows what she was doing.
