General Info
No matter what your goals are on violin, what style of music you want to play on the instrument, or what your prior experience with violin is, Michael truly enjoys sharing the "how to" information essential on violin with his students. His approaches are thourough, logical, practical, easy to learn, effective and most of all...musical.

Overall

We enrolled our 9 year old girl in Michael's Violin Lessons last year based on our friend's recommendation and the experience has been positive for us.

Michael is a great teacher; he is very proficient in what he does, he has vast knowledge and experience in violin, he is very accommodating and flexible, and his instructions and approach are tailored to each student’s needs.

Our daughter’s performance has been steadily progressing since she started from scratch with only one lesson (about 30 minutes) a week, and she has already played in two recitals with Michael and his other students.

Michael is also very approachable and kind with the kids and that makes the lessons a relaxing and enjoyable for them, and that helps keep them excited and interested in the lessons.

We highly recommend Michael's Violin Lessons without reservation.
