• Though Sarah just completed her first year of study with Ms. Lea, the improvement in knowledge and technique has been of one who has studied longer than that. Lessons are delivered in a professional and friendly manner. Ms. Lea will challenge my daughter by raising the bar, yet not causing her to be frustrated in the process. My daughter enjoys lesson days and looks forward to growing as a violin player! Thank you Lea for your work, flexibility and dedication!”

  • Lea played for our wedding and did a wonderful job. She was professional and pleasant to work with and was a terrific soloist.”
    – Becky, New Brunswick, NJ

  • Ms. Lea is a great teacher! She always pushes me to the next level. I have learned so many new things: fingering, tuning, and vibrato. She teaches me how to play pieces written by famous composers like Bach. I would strongly recommend her as a teacher.”
    – 4rth grade student in Millburn, NJ

  • Studying violin with Lea is really enjoyable—she is a wonderful teacher. As someone over 40 who is studying music of any kind for the very first time in my life, I was nervous about starting lessons and not sure I would be able to learn how to read music, much less play the violin. Lea is always encouraging and endlessly patient and has helped me make successful progress. She’s helped build my confidence along with my technical ability. I am thoroughly enjoying my lessons.”
    – Adult student, Morristown, NJ

  • Thank you so much for being a part of our special day. The music was beautiful during the ceremony and cocktail hour. We can’t thank you enough for all your help in making our wedding day incredible.
    Thank you again!”
