Rachel was calm and lovely and patient with my five year old showing her the violin and how it works. I think we're going to have a great experience working with her!

Rachel is a wonderful, knowledgeable instructor! Super nice and truly cares about your goals and was very encouraging. She catered the lesson very well, over Skype, and it was great! Hope to continue lessons soon..
