General event / party,
I hired Tona to help my 12 year old daughter keep up in her 7th grade violin classes. We are 3 classes in and so far Tona has been wonderful. She's very patient and encouraging during the lessons, and at the end of each lesson she writes out a page of notes for my daughter to have while she practices during the week.Oct 14, 2018VerifiedAida Studios's reply
Joni is playing beautifully I can’t wait to hear her progress over the next few months.
Violin Lessons (for adults)
I hired Tona for teaching my Autistic adult daughter. She is patient and seems very professional and experienced. My daughter loves her too. Would highly recommend her.Jul 17, 2018VerifiedAida Studios's reply

Tona was hired to play at our company holiday party. All I can say is that she was awesome. She was responsive to communication prior to the event, she showed up on time and performed incredibly. We will definitely look to have her back for future events.Dec 11, 2015Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Students pay for package rates for lessons at a discount rate. I have found that students need more lessons to succeed but at an affordable price. We also require all lessons to be confirmed on the day of each lesson. Students who pay on time and or early; keep the same discounted rate for their long term commitment.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I work with all customers on an individual basis to see what their needs are. I ask them questions to see what are the goals of this customer and how much time do they have to devote towards making this goal.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have attended gift and talented programs since I was 14 years old on the campuses of Norfolk State University, Hampton University and Old Dominion University. I attended the Governor's School for the Arts a prestigious high school program for talented high school students. I was also selected to be a part of the Julliard Experience an intensive weekend program for 50 students around the country interested in attending the Julliard School of Music. I attended Shenandoah Conversatory of music on a full scholarship for undergraduate studies. I have performed around the world as a violinist and vocalist in both solo and chamber music performances.
