Started going for violin lessons (I'm in my 20's with no music background). Had only a couple of classes so far. I really like the pace and her style of teaching. She is professional and very easy to work with.

I highly recommend Ilana. I contacted Ilana just a few weeks before our wedding and asked for some songs which were not regular for weddings. She not only said yes to all of our songs and found us a cellist quickly, but was also responsive to discuss all the details to make sure the performance go well. At the wedding, they arrived early and our guests loved their music! My husband and I feel very grateful for their wonderful presence at our wedding!

    My daughter has been taking piano and violin lessons from Paul. The piano lessons since age 9 for almost 2 years now, and the violin lessons for a few months now to augment the strings music instruction at her school. He was referred by a family in our neighborhood, and he was open to trial lessons before completely signing on. He goes into music appreciation and history along with his teaching. We have also enjoyed a few recitals of his students along the way - there are three of these each year in student homes, and the anticipation of an upcoming recital is good motivation for the student to practice. For one of these recitals, Paul wrote the sheet music for a popular song that my daughter chose, since there wasn't one readily available. So he goes out of his way to customize the teaching. My daughter has progressed well, and enjoys the experience. I definitely recommend Paul.

    I began receiving lessons from Miss Kathleen when I was in the 4th grade. She has been my private tutor for the past 8 years, and we only recently stopped having lessons due to her move. She has played a very big role in becoming the musician I am today. With her help and instruction, I participate in my school's highest orchestra, in the Capitol Symphonic Youth Orchestra, and in events such as District Orchestra. She has always inspired and encouraged me to pursue my music related aspirations and, because of that, I plan on studying music in college and pursue it as a career. I can't imagine what I would have done with out her. Over the years of lessons, she has become more than just a teacher. She is my close friend who I continue to go to for advice.

    Irena is a spectacular teacher and is really accommodating to all of her students. She works with them to break down difficult pieces and make them easy. She can take someone's skills to the next level and always brings her 100% to each lesson. Most importantly, she teaches each student to really feel for the music and love it.

    Carolyn is an excellent teacher. Our 5 year old had been asking for a violin and lessons for a long time so we decided to give it a try for her and our 8 year-old. We found Carolyn on Thumbtack and she came to our house to meet the girls and give them an introductory lesson - for free! Our 5 year-old is flighty. Focus and practice are concepts she's not really on-board with. I expected that she'd be frustrating for any teacher to deal with. When we met Carolyn, we knew straight away that she would be a great fit. We planned for one month of lessons, and then we would assess the feasibility of continuing. By now, we've had two months and we're heading into our third. Carolyn is an excellent and patient teacher, understanding of little girls and their short attention span. She makes the lesson fun and interesting and tailors her approach to students. She is even teaching them pieces of the theme music from their favorite video game! She looks for ways to keep them engaged and motivated and she knows how to work with each of the girls as individuals who have very different personalities and temperaments. She explains everything well - both to the children and to the parents (I'm completely novice to the violin, and know almost nothing about learning to play an instrument). All-in, I can't recommend Carolyn highly enough.

    Michele is a wonderful teacher! I am taking violin lessons after several years of not playing and she is very encouraging. After years of playing classical music, I am enjoying taking lessons to explore other styles of music, such as folk music. She has an extensive background that allows for this kind of exploration.
