Margaret is a wonderful instructor who provides excellent teaching. I really appreciated that she made a point of not only explaining how to hold the bow, the violin, etc, but also explaining why it's important to use certain positions and posture and how it all comes together as one continues to practice. She's also super friendly and how's a very positive and welcoming demeanor.

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!
