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.

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!

Mr. Raval has a special gift for teaching with encouragement, high standards, and clear instruction that inspire his students to achieve. He is very professional, kind and warm. He taught our daughter for 5 1/2 years and is a terrific role model even beyond violin lessons. We recommend him highly and without reservation!

About

My teaching experience in Philadelphia has also enriched my studies and development as a musician. I am an active chamber coach and orchestral player working alongside prominent Philadelphia musicians such as Glen Fischbach, Aaron Picht, and Marvin Moon, in Temple University’s musical prep school. I am also a teacher in a Main Line studio called Leading Tone Lessons LLC, with which I maintain a studio of 4 violin, viola, and piano students. In Wichita, Kansas, I studied my master of music with the violist of the Grammy-nominated St. Petersburg String Quartet, Boris Vayner. During my two years, I was a section violist in the Wichita Symphony Orchestra, a professional orchestra lead by Maestro Daniel Hege. Additionally, I served as principal viola in a chamber group called Suprima Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Boris Vayner. During my years in Kansas, I also played in the Wichita Grand Opera, which allowed me to learn many of the greatest opera compositions. I won several awards in Wichita in the surrounding region, including first prize in the Wolff-Bing Chamber Music competition, and third prize in the Arapahoe Concerto Competition in Colorado. Most recently, I had the fantastic opportunity to lead the viola section in the Silk Road Symphony Orchestra in Berlin, Germany. This orchestra is composed of musicians from around the world, bringing together diversity and the universal language of music.

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.

Deb is a very energetic teacher and is great to work with! I have been taking piano lessons (beginner level) with her for almost two months and it has been a really wonderful experience. Every lesson, we review what we discussed the previous week and move on to new material. Deb has been very good about giving me exercises and pieces to work on in between sessions. This has been very helpful and has helped me improve in the short time I've been taking lessons with her. I would highly recommend Deb as a piano teacher. She is also a very talented violinist!!!

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.
