Our 7 year old daughter asked to take Violin lessons for a year before we were convinced that she was really interested. Searching for a teacher started. Our daughter needed a female teacher who has smile on their face, enthusiasm, talent, knowledge, and exhibits true joy in playing and teaching. We found her in Marilyn. She has been able to relate to our daughters energy and her excitement to play. We are very happy to continue lesson with Marilyn for years to come.

My son has been taking lessons from Marilyn for the last 3 years, and has grown so much in his skill and confidence! He really enjoys his lessons, and they have a great working relationship!
