Hiring Robert to play the violin at our ceremony on the beach was absolutely the best decision we made. He quickly responded to our initial information request and was able to provide the perfect fit for a surprise gender reveal song last minute. Robert playing the violin at our ceremony was absolutely beautiful and anyone that hires Robert is extremely lucky. I highly recommend Robert.

It was a pleasure to perform for you and your lovely bride! A beautiful ceremony in a beautiful location, and a boy on the way to boot! Congratulations and all the best for the family...

Viola Lessons (for adults)

Incredible responsiveness - replied immediately to my posting with a friendly and encouraging note, answered his phone on the second ring, and got me in for my first lesson the same day. His teaching style is enthusiastic and has given me great hope that I will indeed be able to play the viola!

Violin Lessons (for children or teenagers)

We are thrilled to have found Mr. Rotzler. In just a few lessons he has taught our 14 year old things she has never been taught before in spite of having 4 previous violin teachers. Mr. Rotzler is not only exceptionally talented on the violin, but he also knows how to teach it! His dynamic personality makes the lessons fun while at the same time teaching proper technique.He is also very positive and motivating to students of all levels and inspires them to do their best.
