Music Performance · In home

Victoria was a good choice to get my child off the ground in her piano instruction. She helped give my daughter confidence (which is saying something, as my daughter is a perfectionist and therefore very insecure) through her friendly, patient approach. Though I had higher expectations with regards to disciplines like posture, proficiency development through things like scales/arpeggios/drills, or development of sight reading, as I had in my own musical upbringing (though I practiced under one of the top violin instructors in Seattle) I'm nonetheless grateful to have started the first few years of beginner lessons to give my child sheer enjoyment of music performance, as Victoria clearly has a love for music herself. I'm also very grateful that she was willing to drive all over Austin to meet in homes, as that was invaluable for my schedule. Thanks a lot, Victoria!

Victoria does a great job of tailoring the lessons to your goals and interests. She is a good vocal teacher, but the best thing is her great depth of knowledge about the music I actually want to play, and where it came from. There may be other options out there for some specific technique , but Victoria does an amazing job at helping me become a better a musician.

Victoria is really great with my 7 year old. We are just trying to cultivate her voice at this time. My daughter likes to "back seat" sing right now and I just want her to have the confidence to sing out loud and Victoria is doing a great job with her.

She was very patient with me and she had a lot of great advice. Very welcoming and understanding. Knowledge of techniques and posture were very well said. I like how she gave me homework so I can do and practice until next time.

Victoria is a great instructor. She had me playing from my first lesson! I enjoy working with her and have learned a lot in just the few lessons we've had. I highly recommend her.
