Only our first day but Marvette was really great with my 4.5 year old and we left after 30 minutes with a lot of excitement and our first song under our belt!

Marvette is a Dream!

I had some reservations about finding a violin teacher this way, but we hit the jackpot with Marvette. My daughter has been taking violin lessons for years and she says Marvette is the best teacher she has ever had. She is sweet and encouraging.

Wonderful Teacher

I can't say enough good things about Marvett. My daughter was struggling and miserable with the violin and Marvett changed everything. She has a wonderful demeanor and is so patient. Now my daughter is enjoying the violin for the first time. I highly recommend her.
