Guitar Lessons : I had a good experience with Andy. I had to stop lessons for a long out of town trip. Plan on starting back in the spring 2014. I had a mixed bag of guitar skills and he was able to focus on what I needed to learn and show me how to do it. Thanks
I've known Mr. Donati since before I can remember and I've taken lessons with him since I was 10 years old. He Is a fantastic instructor for people of all ages. He has taught me guitar and violin, and for a very brief time piano, and he always found ways to incorporate my love of singing into my lessons. He truly goes the extra mile to make sure you are enjoying the music you're making. He takes into consideration the types of music you enjoy and incorporates them into your lessons. You can tell that he takes a lot of pride in his work and is very patient, He loves to see you grow in all areas of music, even if it's not particularly something that he taught you. He has been very accommodating scheduling lessons and overall i've had an excellent experience growing as a musician with his help:)
I strongly recommend Barbara as a violin and viola teacher and as a chamber music coach. She is a versatile violinist/violist who is active in many orchestras and chamber music groups in the Boston Area and her enthusiasm for the music is infectious. I have studied with Barbara for over 20 years. As an adult student with work and family responsibilities over the years, I found Barbara to be flexible regarding scheduling lessons and working with me to accomplish my goals given my available time to practice. I've observed Barbaras teaching style with children, adolescents and adults. She is consistently kind and patient. She helps students understand the style and context of the music they are studying. She also connects the technical details of violin playing to musical expression in ways are understandable and appropriate for different age groups and musical experience level. She always praises what students do well and patiently describes and demonstrates how they can correct mistakes and improve the quality of their playing. She applies the same principles and techniques in lessons with both her adult and young students. Bernadette Shapiro, Adult Student Lexington, Massachusetts
Daniel is a meticulous and skillful instructor- exactly the kind of teacher I was looking to find here in the Cambridge/Boston area. Since I have some years of violin experience in the past, I was looking to fine tune and improve certain techniques I felt were lacking in my playing. After the initial trial class, Daniel was able to pinpoint what techniques and skills I needed to work on. In each lesson, we work on foundational exercises, technique and also repertoire. Although it's only been a few months, I honestly feel like my playing has improved under Daniel (more so than it ever has under any other instructor I've had) because of his steady guidance and ability to find new ways to target roadblocks. I feel he sincerely cares about improving his student's skills. I would highly recommend Daniel to anyone who is looking to becoming a better violinist. He is one of the best!
Our extensive search for well rounded teacher who is great with kids is finally over. Ms. Kim has brought my kid to the next level where she is having fun learning to play the violin rather feeling as extra circular activity. She looks forward to her lesson every week.
I decided to take up the violin again after last having touched one over forty years ago. I have been taking violin lessons with Haley for over six months. She quickly helped me get back some sense of the instrument. She has been patiently taking me through scales, rhythm, tempo, sight reading , and in addition has exposed me to the basics of music theory. I have found her to be welcoming, knowledgeable, friendly, flexible, yet also professional. We go through scale drills, are making our way through basic Hal Leonard books, and even do a little jamming on some rock ballads that she has downloaded for us to play along with. I haven't been practicing as much as I could or should, but Haley is cool with it. It's all been a challenge for me, but I am thoroughly enjoying it. When I progress to a higher level of playing ability, I am certain her high level of violin musicianship and teaching skill will be greatly helpful in allowing me to reach my musical goals. I would highly recommend Haley as a violin teacher for aspiring musicians of all skill levels.
At over 60, taking violin lessons for the first time could have been painful. Laura makes sure that it isn't. I love learning from her. She is a gifted teacher and talented musician who knows how to adjust lessons to the individual student and encourage without lecturing. I highly recommmend her for either performance or instruction...for any aged student!
Wonderful violin teacher . I highly recommend this professor. My daughter improved so much
Jodi has been teaching piano lessons in my home to my three children for over two years and we couldn't be happier. She has an easy way with the children, they have learned a great deal of theory, they play very well and they LOVE to play. I highly recommend Jodi Griffith as a piano teacher.
David was a great teacher! It was clear he had a great understanding and expertise in the fundamentals of the violin and absolutely knew how to build a person up from the ground up skill-set wise. He provided some great music which taught me well and I was able to excel quickly based on the music he provided and the lessons he taught me. He had a very pleasant demeanor and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone starting off new with the violin.
Ellen is the consummate violin teacher. My children have been taking lessons with her for 14 years. I highly recommend her violin studio. Ellen is professional and infuses students with a love for music and their instrument. She challenges her students to excel; it is truly amazing what children can achieve with encouragement and excellent teaching.
She is a great teacher! Very committed and passionate about her job. Also, a great violinist and a beautiful person!

Sarah is a truly excellent violinist and overall musician. She has the technique, knowledge and sensitivity to teach, coach and inspire students through advanced levels. I appreciated her ability to analyze my technical issues and suggest potential solutions.
Ms Gurfinkel is an extraordinary teacher. I have been taking lessons from her on a weekly basis for half a year now and my violin playing skills have grown tremendously. A little bit about myself, I am 24 years old, and I had been playing violin for two years when I was in middle school, and when I came to Ms Gurfinkel I had been on a hiatus for almost a decade. Ms Gurfinkel was able to see where my skill level was and taylor her teaching to my needs. She will give you challenging piece to practice but within your abilities. She know basically every classic piece so if there is one specific piece that you really want to learn, she can teach you! She is very nice, if you practiced the previous week, haha. If you haven't been practicing enough, she can tell and she will be strict on you, which is a good thing. And by enough practice, I mean generally one to two hours a day, around ten hours per week. If you want to take your violin playing to the next level, or if you want to start learning violin, come take lessons from Ms Gurfinkel, you won't be disappointed.
