Harry is truly an excellent teacher. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He makes the lessons fun and challenging, and I come away realizing I've learned a lot in an hour. He is a really good violin and piano player and it really inspires me to go home and practice. Harry tries hard to be flexible with scheduling which I really appreciate. The price of the lessons is also good. If you are looking for a violin or piano teacher (he teaches me violin), I would say try a lesson with Harry for sure.

Harry has a great love of music and superb knowledge of viola, violin and piano. He's terrific at imparting theory during a lesson and always makes up the time if he arrives late or has to miss a lesson. He's cheerful and high-energy. Highly recommended.

Allison is an amazing violin teacher! As a recent college graduate with no prior knowledge of the violin, I was looking for a teacher who could help me learn quickly without overwhelming me. Allison is an incredibly skilled and knowledgeable teacher who has great patience while also always propelling my playing forward. She is very approachable and encouraging, and I look forward to every lesson!

Gregor is an engaging violin teacher whose many years of experience on the instrument clearly come through in lessons. My favorite part about studying with him is his ability to tailor the lesson to the individual - I studied piano for many years before this and he's able to tap into the knowledge I've built there and leverage my already-existing musical experience and apply it to the violin. He also is able to zero in very quickly on mistakes (or less-than-perfect habits) that I make and recommend immediate ways to course-correct. His expertise, patience, and sense of humor make the one-hour lessons go by very quickly. Would definitely recommend.

Brittany is simply amazing. I'm 26 and decided to take up Violin. Brittany not only spends extra time with students, providing workbooks and a straight forward approach she goes above and beyond, stopping by to tune when out of tune, and even staying later on initiate lessons to gauge your skill and create a custom plan. I am very picky and went through 2 teachers before finding her and very glad i did. if you want to learn violin effectively and have fun at the same time definitely choose Brittany!

I’ve picked up the violin off and on a few times during my childhood and college, and recently decided to go back to it this year. Julia has been very communicative, patient, and encouraging and makes the lessons fun and enjoyable but also very informative. She’s very attentive and gives great feedback so that I know exactly what to work on. I highly recommend!

I really enjoy my lessons with Johannes. He is very meticulous, resourceful and flexible in his teaching. He uses easy to understand analogies to explain the various mechanisms of violin-playing and why certain techniques help improve sound quality. This is especially useful for an adult beginner like me, who need to be convinced of the logic behind it before following/ remembering instructions. I also love that he holds me to the same standard as his students who want to pursue a career in music—honing the basic skills and emphasizing intonation from the very beginning. Johannes is patient but you know that he can tell if you didn't practice. I highly recommend taking lessons with him.
