This was my first songwriting lesson with Mimi. She helped me with one of my sings and listened to 2 of my other songs. I have found Mimi to be a very knowledgeable and patient and creative teacher who inspires self-confidence in her students. Definitely several points above average.

I only wish I could better express my appreciation for finding such a wonderful and creative teacher as Mimi! 5 little gold stars are hardly enough of a description for her experience, encouragement, expressiveness, and articulation of the violin. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone at any stage of their music!

I write contemporary Christian and inspirational music. Mimi was great and helped me with my song melody's and structure. She was very encouraging, and knowledgeable. Showed me how to change the melody in the bridge to make my song stronger. I am pitching songs to have them recorded by Christian artist. I think one of the songs we worked on has good chance of being recorded. Thank you Mimi. Will come back for more sessions.

Mimi is a great teacher. She’s very encouraging and I enjoy the pieces we play. I’m already making great progress with intonation, bowing, and vibrato. I feel very fortunate to have found her for a violin teacher!

Mimi was awesome. She let me play some things. She could evaluate where I was based on giving some songs to play. She was patient and encouraging.

My first lesson was wonderful , I had been trying to learn on my own for the last three months, Mimis instruction was very helpful. She was friendly warm and encouraging. I look forward to my next lesson. I was a little intimidated by her vast experience , she reassured me and put my fears at ease. She also has experience teaching adults which is what I was looking for . I am 50 years old and have no experience playing violin .

It is a very delightful experience to work with Mimi. She is helping me get those deep lovely tones from the viola and helping me with techniques to help me play without fatigue so I can play longer and with more enjoyment!

A++ instructor. If you are looking for that unique combination of world class violinist AND masterfully experienced at teaching the violin, then Mimi is for you. I've progressed rapidly in eight months of weekly instruction from a complete beginner playing his first notes through Suzuki Book II. Mimi is FUN to work with -- patient, encouraging and inspiring. She truly loves to teach and it shows.
