Who knew violin lessons could be effective and fun?
I was lucky enough to have Phyllis as a violin instructor for two years. As an adult beginner, I was very glad to find an instructor who could tailor her teaching to my needs. Phyllis was fantastic at explaining music theory at a level that worked for me and what I needed without overwhelming me. She pushed me to improve and do better while keeping lessons fun. I improved significantly under Phyllis' tutorage, in contrast to my previous instructor with whom I struggled constantly. I can't recommend Phyllis highly enough, she's upbeat, has great patience, and knows how to teach effectively. And, of course, she plays violin beautifully. If she was still near me, I would definitely be taking lessons with her still.
Had regular lessons for two years, improved significantly. Phyllis relocated, otherwise I'd still be learning from her!
Great teacher for adult violin beginner
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.
Very satisfied and pleased.
