Maritza is wonderful with my son who is 7 years old. The violin lessons are fun and very very instructive. Glad I found her.

We had a very nice lesson with Maritza. She is knowledgeable, easy going and kind. I appreciated that she spent time with my child with the fundamentals of violin positioning before jumping into playing.
