Viola · In studio

Nancy is one of the best teachers i've ever had. Her lessons are engaging and productive. She communicates music in a way that is meaningful, constructive, and easily understood which for me are the most important and desirable elements learning music from scratch. With her majors in both performance and eduction, she is able to provide a hands-on teaching style integrated with the theory basis. Nancy is definitely the ideal teacher if you are looking for someone professional and fun to grow your music journey.

Nancy is very patient with kids. I found my daughter getting more interested in playing the viola. She is a very experienced and responsible teacher!
