My daughter and I have been taking violin lessons with Lisa for about 3 years. We both came to her as beginners. Lisa has been above and beyond our expectations in many ways. She is very adaptable and is able to individualize instruction/feedback to a child vs an adult, to different personality styles, and throughout the various stages of learning to play the violin. She is excellent at motivating one through the inevitable challenges of the learning curve. She is very flexible and accommodating about lesson times, and is sensitive to individual pace of learning. Lisa is also exceptionally courteous, respectful, and fun-loving, while always remaining professional and staying focused on the goal of facilitating steady improvement. Lisa is a gem of an instructor who puts sincere skill and caring into her lessons.
Owner response: Thank you for your gift of articulate and beautiful words. They mean so much to me. I love teaching you two and hope there are many lessons in the future!
