After a great stint of piano and violin lessons, we just began with Johnny Walker, Aida's strings teacher, to start my son on cello. We are so impressed with him - he knows HOW to teach, asking questions, guiding my son to think and understand rather than a mere demonstrate-and-repeat style. My son immediately took to him and can hardly wait between lessons for the next. Thank you!
Don was fantastic. I'm so excited to continue my violin and piano lessons! I definitely recommend him...he obviously has a lot of knowledge to offer his clients.
Very professional, Andrew Pendergast is awesome. My daughter has had 3 voice lessons and now we are incorporating guitar with the lesson. I highly recommend Lessons In Your Home.
I hired Hannah to play the violin during our August 2017 wedding. She was professionally dressed and played beautifully. She was even willing to learn a few songs I requested. Her prices are reasonable and she is very easy and friendly to work with. I would highly recommend her.
I have been a student of Carly’s for the past 18 months. I am a beginner violinist with just 2 yrs under my belt. I am a recent retiree with absolutely no prior musical abilities until I decided to take up the violin. I am extremely happy with Carly’s instruction & teaching techniques. I feel I have advanced quite rapidly with the one-on-one teaching methods & the personal attention Carly gives to each of my lessons. She permits me to select the music I prefer to learn & play. Carly is a very pleasant young woman who prides herself in her preparation, attention, patience, perseverance & punctuality to every lesson I have had with her. She is very praiseworthy when it is deserved and is very reserved in her criticism even when justified. I would not hesitate to recommend Carly to anyone no matter what the level of your ability.
Our son has attended one violin lesson so far. Joanna determined a problem with his finger positioning on the strings immediately and showed him how to fix it right away. The homework she has given my son has kept his interest. He already seems more motivated. We will see how things go as we proceed, but we are pleased so far.
Greta customizes violin lessons to my son's strengths and weaknesses. While Greta challenges him to do his best, he has told me that he feels very comfortable playing for her and being instructed by her. He very much looks forward to his lessons and they've inspired him to practice more regularly.
Tatiana has been teaching me to play the violin for a little over a couple of months. She is very patient, and adapts her teaching methods to suit her students, and to help them do the best they can, at their level, with their instrument. Which, I think, is the best any teacher can do. She also makes lessons very enjoyable. I am an adult beginner, so I bring some things from daily life to classes (such as tension) that don't belong with the violin... and I appreciate how she works me on each learning goal, while helping me tackle technical challenges. Classes are focused and structured, but flexible. If that sounds like work, it isn't. Highly recommend!
I found Victor here on this website for a guitar teacher for my son and when it came down to needing to hire a teacher Victor had followed up with me. So I took advantage of the first free lesson and he's been my sons guitar teacher ever since. Victor is very patient and knowledgeable, the personal attention and care he gives to each individual child is wonderful. You can tell that he has a love for music and this is his passion. I've spoken to other families that he teaches(some for several years) and they all agree. He works well with my son on incorporating styles and songs he is interested in as well as teaching music theory and basics. My son was a beginner 6 months ago and now he is playing full songs confidently. He loves coming to guitar class and learning new techniques, and songs. I plan on continuing until my son can pay for lessons himself. I highly recommend Victor Crisen.
Janet Greene was my son’s private lessons teacher for almost ten years. She worked with him as a 4th grader until after graduation. His love for his viola and music is in large part due to her passion for music and her gentle guidance to the nuances of music and playing. She also encouraged him to practice every day and we have fond memories of him walking around the house every evening playing his instrument. She often found other venues for him play which gave him confidence in his ability to play in front of others. I believe that one reason he is still playing his instrument in college is the love for music she helped him develop. I highly recommend her as an instructor, tutor and person!
I've known Todd for many years now & count him as a friend & mentor. His violin lessons are a pleasure -- they are fun & challenging. He knows his students' abilities & caters to them; on top of that, he's familiar with quite a range of musical genres. I highly recommend him!
As an adult student with no music experience, I think that Christine does a good job breaking down the basics into something that can be easily followed. She is patient and will work to accommodate busy adult schedules. She recommended the Samuel Applebaum String Builder book; which I really like as it teaches the basic hand position along with the associated notes. Rather than learning to play by listening then learning the notes. Again she can tailor her lessons based on children or adults learning abilities.
Gosh, you simply can't do better. Where else are you going to find a classically trained bluegrass expert with a Masters degree, giving affordable private lessons? Chris is just amazing.

Ms. Linnea Marchie is an excellent instructor for my daughter. She is enthusiastic about teaching violin and brings positive energy to each lesson so that my daughter looks forward her session and actually practices almost everyday ( It is amazing). We like Linnea very much.

I have taught children to play string instruments for 11 years using the Suzuki method! The Suzuki Method requires parent involvement, daily listening and practice as well as regular lesson attendance. It is an educational method that addresses the needs of the whole child with the primary focus of developing life skills through the vehicle of music study. I help families learn to communicate more effectively and practice productively. Each and everyone of our students achieves superior playing ability and chartacter! Ms. Glenda
