I'm an adult starter violist (from age 38). I'm now 5 yrs into it, and I play 10+ concerts a year with a local university orchestra, chamber groups, a quartet, and even fusion bands and occasional paid gigs! Leon is a master teacher who understands the ins and outs of learning process, and he makes adjustments on-the-fly, in order for us to meet my goals. My learning needs are definitely non-traditional. With every lesson, I bring in something I'd like to be able to learn (oftentimes unreasonable). But Leon sees it as a challenge and a puzzle, and somehow finds a way for me to learn the piece. And in the process, my knowledge and skills increase. I've also had the privilege of sitting in on advanced/professional players taking violin lessons from Leon. He seamlessly transitions from topics of artistic expression to elemental techniques to musicology in the same discussion relevant to the lesson topic. In any endeavor, it's not easy coming across a master teacher. You will be in good hands, whether you are an adult starter, a child, a beginner, or an advanced player preparing for auditions, or even a professional player looking for a confidential second set of ears. Leon is also very flexible with appointments. I personally have most of my lessons during weekday day times (as I work weeknights), and some weekends. He's also accommodated emergency lessons and instrument repairs on occasions! Attached photo is of me rehearsing on the stage of the Davies Symphony Hall, and also few other adventures that opened up thanks to learning music!

My 10 year old son has been going there for a year now. 10 year old boys are not the best students, but teacher Leon makes it so special that my son loves it. He is fun, energetic, and most talented teacher that I know.. you learn not just the technique but passion and appreciation for music.
