Ribal has been a fantastic Cello instructor for my child. This was my son's first time trying a string instrument, and he has absolutely loved the experience. Ribal is very enthusiastic about teaching music and has been able to introduce the instrument in a very friendly and fun way, which has kept my son interested. We are still participating in lessons and loving it, and we are also planning on starting music theory lessons to help introduce him to basic note reading. We highly recommend Ribal!
