~Violin lessons with Eva~

I started playing the violin a little over a year ago?the first time I played a note was in a lesson with Eva. Throughout the past year she has been extremely patient and reassuring. She does a great job of ensuring technical proficiency while still making it fun and encouraging a passion for playing music. Lessons can be tailored to the types of music you want to play, and to your specific strengths and weaknesses. We?ve played everything from folky fiddle songs to classical duets in the past year. I have really loved having Eva as a violin teacher. She goes above and beyond?if I have a question or issue while practicing during the week, she is always willing to help and advise. I really cannot recommend her enough.  ~ Isadora D. (student)

Student gives guitar teacher, David Putnam, an electric guitar!

When I have a student get excited about our lessons it really makes me happy inside to know that I can bring other people joy, especially, through music! I've had many tips given to me from my students over the years as a thank you to me for all they have learned from our lessons. I've received gifts that have ranged from money to books and more and I am so grateful for all. Just recently, I was given a guitar as a thank you from one of my jazz guitar students, Matthias. How cool is that?! (it's the cream guitar on the right).

Check out Matthias' band, Indyus. His music will definitely get you going!
