Phyllis kindly took me on and was flexible with time and location. She's been very good and patient with me just starting out learning to play the violin - I'm learning it for myself and also to help encourage my daughter who's also just started.
Phyllis is clearly an experienced teacher and can diagnose and suggest a number of remedies for the basic errors in technique that a beginner like myself makes.
The lessons fly by and she makes great use of online media afterwards to cater to areas I'm interested in (currently learning to play some Christmas carols) as well as ways to improve my technique, both written after each lesson and on online youtube videos.
There's no doubt in my mind that she will help me achieve my goal of being able to play the violin quickly and well.
