Student Testimonies 

“I think that Ms. Sarah is a great teacher with lots of patience and energy! Ms. Sarah gives the same care and attention as well as enthusiasm to each student she teaches.


She empathizes with me and understands why I make mistakes and is able to fix my problems before they turn into bad habits. She is also very understanding on a personal level whether I'm having school or family problems.


Ms. Sarah never gets frustrated or aggravated even if I make silly mistakes during my lesson and will sometimes go over in the lesson to help me even if it is her only break time. Overall, she is a wonderful teacher whom I always look forward to having class with!” -Lillian P.

“I highly recommend Ms. Sarah for violin lessons. She has tremendous patience with my young (very fidgety) child. We have made excellent progress with reading music, playing violin, and learning to perform at recitals. Sarah is extremely professional and has great teaching abilities.” -Kim R
