Violin Lessons

I've been taking lessons from Hannah for a few weeks now and have already learned so much! She makes the most of our weekly hour, gives positive feedback and instruction, and is available outside of class when I have questions! Hannah's great!

Thank you, Meghan! So glad you're such a great fit for one another and you're enjoying your lessons! :)

Malena is wonderful to work with. She is positive and encouraging as a teacher. She works hard to make lessons comfortable and stress free, always willing to answer questions and explain any confusions. I've enjoyed learning with her.

Malena is awesome! I’m a first time piano player and she is patient and has a very flexible teaching style to accommodate each student! It’s obvious she loves what she does!

Malena is a great teacher. She taught me and my teenage daughter. I had studied before but Malena filled in gaps my previous teachers had not taught. My daughter studied voice and a few different instruments and Malena taught her well despite our crazy schedule and my daughter’s ADHD.
Music & More Academy's reply
Thanks so much! You were both a joy to teach! :)

Melania is a great music teacher and a wonderful person. I have taken three classes with her. I never thought I would be able to learn to play the piano especially at my age, but she really understands people and their developmental stages in life and is able to teach according to the student. She's lots of fun.

Thanks, Christine! I love having you in class! :)

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    All new music students can request a free trial lesson on our website. We have many days, times, lesson types, and teachers to choose from. Once the student attends the free trial lesson and decides to continue, he or she can enroll in an ongoing class of his or her choice. There is a one time $40 registration fee for new students.
