I just completed my fifth lesson out of my 10 lesson package with Margaret. She is wonderful! Always exactly on time, provides clear instruction and is very encouraging and patient with beginners. I'm an adult who is just now learning to read music, and she makes it way less scary! Definitely recommend taking lessons with her.

Lessons are tailored to fit each individual student's ability and goals. I believe in challenging students while maintaining a supportive and encouraging environment. Lessons will cover music theory, technique, and solo pieces. The goal is to develop in each student the specific skills needed to play a string instrument as well as to nurture an understanding and love for music.

After the first lesson we knew that Leah was the best instructor our son (11 years old) ever had. Within a week, his sound improved dramatically and he was practicing much more productively. She also pointed us to some great youth orchestra opportunities. We strongly recommend Leah!

Leah is fun, energetic and makes learning the violin fun!
Stef
Leah is a great teacher and makes lessons enjoyable. She made it easy to understand what changes I need to make to improve my technique. She gave me reasonable goals for my violin practice in the coming week. I really like her teaching methods and style. I look forward to our next session together.

Emily was patient with me as a beginner. Her instructions were very detailed, easily understood and very helpful. Her pace was just right - not too slow, not too fast. She took the time to observe my technique and make corrections gently as needed. I would highly recommend Emily for online violin instruction to students of all ages.

I’ve been learning with Emily for 4 years now and have seen major improvements with my playing. She is such a dedicated, hardworking teacher. I have gotten so many amazing opportunities working with her, such as joining youth orchestras, playing in recitals, concerts, etc. No matter your level, she always motivates you to do better. I wish I could learn with her forever :((

So far so good. Emily was extremely patient and my daughter said she liked it a lot.

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

I also offer a FREE consultation to
1) answer any questions you may have
2)discuss your goals and what would like to work on
3)show you how to set up for your online lesson

------------------------------------------------------

One of the most commonly asked question I get is:

"Will an online lesson be as good of an experience compared to having in person/live lessons?"

And my answer is YES!

With my online set up you will NOT be missing out on in person lessons. In fact I think online lessons has an advantage over live lessons because the student has a clear visual of their body movements at all times which would be a huge benefit like in situations where you can easily do side by side comparisons with your teacher. It would also be highly beneficial in correcting bad posture.

Rubina is great! She's super helpful, patient, and encouraging. She is very responsive, and flexible with her schedule. She moves at my pace and is great at assessing my skills and gauging what I need from my lessons. I highly recommend her to anyone just starting out, or those who have prior experience but would like more formal training.

She was also super helpful with troubleshooting my camera/device issues, and even sent me youtube videos to assist with getting the right setup.

Thanks Rubina! I can't wait to continue our lessons.

She asked throughout the lesson if he had questions or if she needed to clarify anything, which we appreciate because he doesn't always admit if he doesn't understand."
