We knew about Mr. Rigo through one of my son's friends who takes violin lessons with him. One time this boy played the violin beautifully at one of my son's school music programs. I could not believe how well a five year-old could play the violin. My son had started to show an interest in violin, so we talked to Mr. Rigo about it. He was very personable and professional when I talked with him on the phone. I had several questions and he answered them thoroughly. Then, he invited us to visit his studio and watch him teach. After we saw Mr. Rigo teach and visited with him, my husband and I realized that he was the perfect fit to teach our son. Mr. Rigo is a great teacher with my son and explains to me how to practice every difficult spot in the violin pieces. I have been amazed at how my son longs to play his violin now. He's been learning faster than I thought he would learn. Mr. Rigo has a way of making every lesson fun and memorable. He is very enjoyable, fun-loving and he's as accessible and friendly as anyone can be. He is very professional and always communicates very well with us about all the things happening in his studio. We are very happy with him and would recommend him to anyone.
