Amber Rocks!!! Amber has been coming to our home to give my son, Mason (age 13), private viola lessons for several months now. She is always on time, is also flexible about the times, and is incredibly sweet. She asked Mason what kind of music he was interested in learning, instead of just assuming classical, as so many teachers do. Although I believe classical is very important to know as a base, for a 13 year old boy, it's important he learns music that also interests him, which will help keep him involved and continue on his musical journey. Amber understands this, and makes learning fun. She helps him with school auditions as well, because he wants to join the strings ensemble. Amber is very patient, kind and incredibly knowledgeable. She even travels the world to perform! I promise, if you try her, you will love her! You will not be disappointed and will continue to use her, and recommend her to others. With no hesitation at all; I highly recommend Amber. I wish I could give her 10 stars because she is truly amazing!

We are very happy with "The Eternal Artist Music Studio".Neha is our Violin teacher. She is one of the fine teachers we meet. She has a lot of experience. She really works very hard with our daughter to get her inside chamber music in her school. She is very good handling kids, our daughter likes her very much. She knows how to make the class fun and at the same time teach the kid what they want to know. I heard good reviews about other teachers also in this Music studio from other friends.We definitely recommend her and her music studio to our friend and families. I liked: Best music studio, Best music teachers, Reasonable price.

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.

My daughter studied with Miss Natalie for just over a year. You can see her dedication and passion for playing come through when she teaches. Natalie has a kind and fun manner in which she connects with her students. She takes the time to explain what needs to be done, and is patient and caring in helping them to achieve their goals. Natalie was good with communicating her schedule, and flexible with any changes that may have needed to be made. We were very happy to have Miss Natalie as a teacher!

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

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.
