Amber is wonderful musician and teacher. I started getting violin lessons from her about 5 months ago. I was a complete beginner so I had to start from square one. And, I have yo admit, I found the idea of learning to play the violin really daunting. But I am so happy I found such a great teacher. Amber is always very patient and encouraging. She takes her time and plays along with me during my lessons. I am surprised how much I've learned in such a short time, not only about the violin, but about music in general. Best of all her enthusiasm for music is contagious. My lessons with her are fun and the fact that I'm having fun makes me want to practice even more. My experience with Amber has been so great! I definitely recommend her as a teacher.

Our daughter (6) started to learn to play the piano a few months ago. She loves her lessons and she is very comfortable with Jonathan. She is very happy when he comes to teach her. She improved a lot and her love for the piano increased. Jonathan is very patient and great with kids, also he is a very good teacher.

I am fortunate to have found a dedicated and professional violin teacher for my two children. Miss Victoria has a great personality and is able to keep them focused and motivated. My daughter was especially taken immediately with her encouraging and supportive approach. Their hand position and technique are much improved since starting with Miss Victoria.

Dorothy played violin for my September wedding ceremony as well as the violin part for our first dance song. She is a true professional and an all around pleasure to work with in any capacity! Her skills with the violin have only increased over the past few years and she is an absolutely beautiful player. I could seriously listen to her playing all day. Additionally, Dorothy was very helpful in picking out the music for the ceremony. I have a lot of experience singing with choirs during Catholic masses but I was overwhelmed by trying to select pieces to use during our mass and wedding ceremony. Dorothy and I Skyped, she played little segments to remind me of the songs and then we made our selections together. Thanks to her guidance, this process was quick and painless. She also worked long distance with the church music director and I heard only positive feedback from the other musicians and church staff. Even with being states away from me and the church, Dorothy pulled off a beautiful set without even breaking a sweat. I can still hear the sounds of her beautiful violin on our wedding day and it brings such joy to think about. If you are considering Dorothy for any project, do not hesitate. She is the best decision you could possibly make!

Robert Bradshaw is not only the best violin instructor I've ever met but he's also one of the best men I have ever met. Mr. Bradshaw owns his own Haddonfield business in which he is surrounded by an extremely competent staff, which is filled with other instructors teaching instruments such as cello, violin, piano and more. Whether you are a parent interested in having your child learn an instrument or an adult who would like to learn an instrument or enhance your skills, you can't go wrong with Maestro Studios. Bradshaw stands out above all other music instructors because of his passion, enthusiasm and love for his job. You or your child's specific schedule or musical needs will be met. And to keep your interest in you or your child's instrument, Rob Bradshaw puts on great recitals and concerts and you or your child can even be part of the the pit orchestra for the local theater academy's shows. Reasonably priced lessons, great instructors, and incredible experiences.

We have been thrilled with Sunny! I was looking for someone to teach my 15 year old piano, and was incredibly lucky to find Sunny. In addition to her flexibility she and reasonable rates, Sunny has an incredible educational background and knowledge base. She has been a fun and engaging teacher for my daughter, and her cheerful personality gave her an instant rapport with my teenager. In the few months that she has taught my daughter, I am amazed at the progress I have seen.

About

Every student is different, so I tailor my lesson plans around the student's specific learning style and needs. Ultimately, my goal is for my students to love music and love playing the violin as much as I do. I encourage students to listen to as much music as they can and if there is ever a specific song or piece they want to I am more than happy to incorporate it into the lesson! For younger students and beginners, I use Essential Elements or Suzuki books. I believe it is important to learn to read music from a young age, so I incorporate that into lessons for beginners. Scales and etudes are also key to providing a strong foundation for young students. A similar approach is also used for adult beginners. For intermediate students I utilize the Solos for Young Violinists books as they provide a nice transition into more extensive solo repertoire. Depending on the need of the student, I might also pick specific pieces outside of the books that I think will enhance their learning. Scales and more advanced etudes are also key. For advanced students, I generally pick suitable pieces from the violin repertoire. I believe the reason we learn music is to be able to play and share it with others, so I like to incorporate duets to play with the student as much as possible. Scales and more difficult etudes are also incorporated.

I am not only experienced but also patient and passionate about music education.

Start your child on violin or piano. I offer private lessons at my home. I like to work with families to encourage young children to love music and to develop their talents for the glory of God. Annual recitals are held at the church, where my husband is the senior pastor at Limerick Chapel. I am a pastor's wife who learned to play as an adult. I play viola in our church orchestra. My daughter and I did the first three Suzuki books before switching to traditional method. I am a grandma of 9, and I teach 6 local children.

About

Graduate of Violin Performance Master degree at Yale University and String Pedagogy Master degree at Temple University, I love both teaching and playing. I'm one of the faculties at Symphony in C Youth Orchestra and St. Malachy School where I work with many different ages and levels of students. I've had my private studio for many years teaching kids from age 4 to adults. I'm also an active orchestral player where I'm a member of the Virginia Symphony, Allentown Symphony, Symphony in C and New Jersey Capital Philharmonic. I believe it's very important for the teacher to have both experience in performing and teaching in order to fully understand and help the students. Through the lessons I help students on understanding the fundamentals of music theory, creating an ideal sound, and musical expression and coordination. Whether they're trying to just have fun with music, improve their basic skills or prepare auditions such as School or District Orchestra, Youth Orchestra (PYO PYAO or many other local groups), I try to find the best for each students. Every student is different. I work with students individually and use different approaches for each one of them. Such as methods, repertoire and lesson skills.
