Supportive and encouraging. Very happy with her. Sometimes I can’t hear well through her mask.
Natalie
We are loving cello with Quinn! We had her in person before COVID and now online. She does a great job of guiding the learning process and working with the student (my daughter as an individual)
Shauna
My 9 yr old daughter began cello lessons with Quinn about 2 weeks before lockdown started. I was worried that online lessons wouldn't work out, but Quinn has been amazing. She's great at explaining everything so that my daughter understands, and she pushes just enough to keep her interested without being overwhelmed. She also answers questions promptly by email when any problems arise. I can't recommend her highly enough!

Elisa is a great violin teacher. I'm proud to be her oldest student on record (I am approaching 75). I started playing just about three years ago all by myself. Then went to Elisa to see if I could make quicker improvements. She patiently corrected a lot of my bad habits and showed me the right way to practice. I was able to make good progress over times. She is fun to be with. Highly recommended for both young and old.
John
Elisa is an amazing viola teacher! The techniques and practicing methods work like magic, and I've improved so much since I started taking lessons. I highly recommend taking lessons from her!
Laura
Elisa is a great violin teacher. She is patient and fun, yet challenges our daughter which helps her advance quickly. She is very skilled at setting developmentally appropriate goals and my 9 year old daughter loves her!

Ruby
Denice is an extremely qualified and fenomenal teacher. She has taught me Suzuki violin and Fiddling for 6 years, and I have progressed further than I thought possible in both my playing and listening skills, and my knowledge of music. She cares a tremendous amount about her work and her students which makes the program like a second family to me. Her teaching style is direct and purposeful, and she knows exactly how to push her students to become better players. I highly recommend Denice to everyone, regardless of their skill or age.
Janet
Denice has taught my daughter for six years and has really challenged my daughter to keep striving for excellence. Suzuki method is the best and combined with fiddling, Denice provides a wonderful musical education. Denice has nurtured a supportive teacher-student relationship but is so much more: a mentor, coach, and friend.

If you are looking for a Suzuki teacher who puts her heart and soul into her students and teaching, has high expectations, and also opens up a whole ‘nother musical experience in fiddling, I would definitely recommend Denice.

Mr. Eugene is an excellent instructor. He is informative, positive, and able to accurately assess the needs of the student. We didn't miss a beat with the virtual lesson, I felt it was as good if not better than any face to face lesson. We would highly recommend Mr. Eugene for violin (or piano), his extensive music knowledge and experience added an invaluable foundation to the instruction. Thank you!

Excellent Teacher

I am an older student and I started to learn to play the piano more than a year ago under a different teacher. I started with Eugene about 4 months ago. I was struggling with the piano previously. But after just 2 lessons with Eugene, I found myself playing confidently. Eugene explains so clearly and everything makes sense to me now. I enjoy practicing everyday now. He is excellent teacher, patient, and very professional. He is always on time.

Eugene is the best piano teacher I have ever had! He doesn't just know how the teach piano but music as well! I'm so glad that I chose him!

"Very natural in working with my two kids (with two very different personalities, I might add). They’re at different experience levels and Ms. W. was able to adapt easily and determine what each needed to grow in their individual musical ability. She sets high expectations in the most authentically positive way that makes my kids want to do their best. Very pleased that we found her. My oldest is already talking about going to music school “just like Ms. W!” She knows her stuff and is a breath of fresh air—very affordable and flexible with her schedule, too."

"Ms. Keiko is a wonderful teacher and also one of the greatest violinists in my opinion.
Luckily, my 6-year-old son could take her lessons and he totally changed in many ways.
He loves violin, but used to practice it for just only 1 hour a day. Once he started learning from her, he was really inspired and started to practice really hard. Now he practices at least 2 hours and more!
I was really worried because it was online lesson so I was wondering if he could concentrate for 60 minutes, but Keiko considered how my son was feeling and understood him well.
She praised my son to encourage improvement and so my son tried to do his very best during the lessons. We are very honored that my son could take her lessons and he’s practicing seriously to get better everyday!"

A Beginner's Guide to Violin Bows: 4 Details to Consider

Selecting a violin bow, much like choosing a guitar, can be a very subjective process.  To the uninitiated, it's "just a violin bow."  They're all the same, right?  Wrong.  To the seasoned violinist, the perfect bow will depend on the player's technique, playing style and overall personal preference.  There are several factors that can affect the sound of the bow on the strings, including strength, shape, and age of the bow. Most beginner violins come with bows that are perfectly fine, b …
