Adelya came highly recommended, and has proved to be an exceptional teacher. My wife and I are both professional musicians, and when looking for a violin teacher for our little one we wanted to be sure to find a teacher who was dedicated, patient and inventive, and Adelya is this and more. It’s very easy for children to become discouraged when learning something new, particularly something that is quite difficult such as violin, but Adelya’s approach is astonishing. In watching her interact in our lessons, it was clear early on that she really knows how to stay connected with her students, both in the moment and beyond, and is gifted in finding angles that perpetuate the learning process. We are very happy with our experience and look forward to what the future holds with our young musician and Adelya’s guidance.

I Highly recommend Adelya if you need a great musician for learning Violin. She is the best and we are always so pleased that she is teaching our daughter, Helena. I have always been impressed with her teaching methods. She is a very flexible, patient, and professional tutor. Helena started her music class with Adelya when she was only five years. She loves Adelya and she has learned a lot of things in her class. Adelya has created great motivation for Helena about playing the violin. Adelya has online classes via Zoom that has great quality.

I have my Bachelor’s in piano performance and it was very important to me to find the best violin teacher possible for our daughter. Adelya has such an impressive educational and professional background and we are thrilled to have found her. I know our daughter is receiving excellent violin instruction in her technique and musicianship, and Adelya is kind, patient, and teaches from an extensive background. In short, our daughter is receiving an amazing opportunity in working with Adelya and we are very happy.
