"The past three years with you have been amazing. When I decided to learn the violin I did a lot of “research”. Everyone said that the violin was one of the most difficult instruments to learn. While I agree with that assessment, I know that it can be a stubborn instrument, but having a teacher like you who conveys their passion for the content, makes it a much more compelling pursuit. You have been with me from my first scratchy, squeaky bow stroke and you have gone above and beyond what I anticipated getting out of the lessons. You took something I love, music, and filtered it through a lens that I could relate to, science. I love how, at my lessons, we dive into experiments with tone, frequency, amplitude, and all kinds of music theory." - Dalton C.

"We have really enjoyed your gentle and steady guidance for Rose’s violin skills.  You have helped set a wonderful technical foundation that will last a lifetime.  Thank you.  Thank you."  - Jayne C.
