I am a beginner. Her instructions are very clear and simple. She makes sure that I understand the basics concepts really well. I really enjoy going to her classes.

I took took violin lessons from Margaret for a few months. She is very good at explaining concepts and teaching technique. She helped me correct my technique from what I was taught by another teacher I was with briefly and that helped immensely. I highly recommend taking lessons with Margaret!
