Dr Collins is great with kids, and is a fabulous music instructor. She is organized and loves her job, and it shows while she's with the kids and organizing events. I would work with Dr. Collins again.
My son has been taking violin for 6 years, from top teachers and music schools, and Julia is the best teacher he has had. He advances quickly because she is both a brilliant musician and gifted at teaching. She adjusts her style to the student--and as a result my son's passion for the violin as at an all time high!!
